Leading housebuilder Bellway has commenced work on an exciting development of 148 high quality new build homes off Dickens Lane in Poynton, Cheshire.

Remediation and initial groundworks are underway at the 13 acre site that will be transformed with an attractive mix of three and four bedroom homes, plus a number of affordable properties, to help meet local housing needs.

Known as Copperfields, the highly sought after new development will feature a stunning mix of detached and semi-detached homes from Bellway’s beautiful Artisan Collection surrounded by landscaped areas of green space to ensure an appealing street scene.

Currently unused, the site was previously agricultural land and has been identified in Cheshire East Council’s Local Plan as a sustainable site close to a thriving market town and close to excellent commuter links that is suitable for redevelopment.

Sales director at Bellway, Hollie Reynolds, commented: “We’re delighted to start work at Copperfields. With its fabulous location close to the Peak District, great selection of independent restaurants, cafes and bars and upmarket shops and good schools, Poynton is a highly desirable residential area that is in increasing demand from a wide variety of buyers including families, first time buyers and couples.

With a proven history of delivering beautiful new build developments that result in thriving and sustainable new communities in other areas of Cheshire East, Bellway is well placed to take forward the development in Poynton. Properties will be released for sale in spring 2021 and the first homes will be ready for occupancy in the summer.

Reinforcing its commitment to the communities in which it builds, Bellway will make several significant financial contributions in the locality that include more than £600,000 towards highway improvements, £130,000 towards open space improvements and £37,800 towards healthcare.
