First homes released at former railway goods yard in Bishop’s Stortford

The first homes at a new apartment development which is transforming the former railway goods yard in Bishop’s Stortford have been released for sale.

The Exchange at Goodsyard, by Bellway North London, is the first residential phase to take shape within the wider £200million regeneration scheme, by lead developer Solum.

Located off Station Road, the Bellway scheme of 149 homes will comprise a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, with a showhome due to be unveiled at the development in July.

The wider scheme is bringing over 500 homes, a care home, a hotel, shops, offices and two multi-storey car parks on the site as well as investment and jobs to the area. A new station square and transport interchange is being created outside the neighbouring railway station.

Greg Allsop, Sales and Marketing Director of Bellway North London, said: “This exciting development will meet the demand for new homes in this area and create a vibrant new community in Bishop’s Stortford.

“We are delivering a range of high-quality new homes on a key site in the town, which was previously disused after its former life as a railway goods yard.

“The attractive development situated just a short walk from Bishop’s Stortford town centre will appeal to a range of homebuyers such as first-time buyers and professionals working locally and in the capital.

“Bishop’s Stortford train station is located opposite the development, providing services to Stansted Airport and Cambridge as well as London Liverpool Street in just under 40 minutes. Major roads including the A120 and M11 are also easily accessible from the development.

“We’ve already seen a great deal of interest in these new homes, with 14 apartments being reserved in the first week, and already have plans in the pipeline for a further phase of apartments within this landmark project.”

Bellway has recently committed to a second phase of homes at Goodsyard. The development, to be known as Southside Locks at Goodsyard, will comprise a further 174 apartments, spread across five apartment blocks.
