Bellway has announced that construction has passed the halfway mark on its Beaumont Green development near Ipswich.
Bellway is building 128 new houses at Beaumont Green, off Portland Way, in the village of Great Blakenham. The development forms part of a wider neighbourhood which includes the regeneration of a former cement works and the opening of a village shop.
The housebuilder noted that its new homes have been particularly popular with first-time buyers, the majority of whom have used the Help to Buy scheme.
Jenny Walker, Head of Sales for Bellway Essex, said: “Construction work has been progressing well at Beaumont Green and it is really pleasing to have passed the halfway mark at this lovely development. We’re working hard to meet the growing need for new housing in this part of Suffolk and we’ve seen many first-time buyers choosing to make their home here. The availability of the Help to Buy scheme has been a massive factor in helping many people to afford their new home.”
The company has noted that 85 per cent of the new homes are now sold.
