Hayfield commences construction on £25m development in Bedfordshire

Hayfield has started construction work at an 8.5-acre (3.46 Ha) site in the Bedfordshire village of Clophill.

The £25m Hayfield Lakes development will feature air source heat pumps, energy-efficient underfloor heating, electric vehicle fast-charging points, enhanced levels of insulation, and fibre optic broadband to each property.

Hayfield secured planning approval for the site from Central Bedfordshire Council in late 2020. The development is being part-funded by the housebuilder’s £67m facility with OakNorth Bank. Hayfield’s scheme will facilitate the creation of the 292-acre (118 Ha) Clophill Lakes and nature reserve by Greensand Charitable Trust.

Andy Morris, Managing Director of Hayfield, said: “We are delighted to have commenced construction at this zero-carbon ready development, which will be a unique addition to our portfolio. The opportunity to live in a traditional village setting, next to nearly 300 acres of new waterside parkland, will be very special indeed.

“We are planning to utilise an element of MMC at this site, in order to further enhance our eco-credentials and provide more certainty to the build programme. The first homes will be ready to move into this autumn, so we will be releasing a number for sale on an off-plan basis during the spring.

“This prime £25m development will create and safeguard construction jobs and provide a boost to the local economy. By working alongside the Greensand Trust, our neighbours and contractors during the two-year construction phase, the entire team will be focused on creating an outstanding new community and exceeding the hopes and aspirations of future Hayfield homeowners.”
