Hayfield has started construction work at a 4.2ha (10.4-acre) site in the Bedfordshire village of Bromham to deliver 80 new homes.
The £31m project is Hayfield’s second ‘Green Revolution’ development, featuring Air Source Heat Pumps, energy-efficient underfloor heating, enhanced insulation, electric vehicle fast-charging points and ultra-fast broadband.
Planning approval has recently been granted by Bedford Borough Council for the site, where the collection of two, three and four-bedroom homes will be developed around a fully equipped children’s play area and a significant amount of Public Open Space. An off-plan sales launch is scheduled to take place in the spring.
Andy Morris, Managing Director for Hayfield said: “We are very proud of the reputation we have already created in Bedfordshire, with the 200 homes we are delivering in Silsoe and Clifton now reaching the final phases. Hayfield Park will elevate the standard of new homes built in this sought-after area, but more of the same is never enough, so Hayfield Park will deliver something very different to the market, featuring our ‘Green Revolution’ technology. These 80 sensitively designed homes will demonstrate how conserving energy and the environment doesn’t need to make any compromises to our signature luxury style.
“We are pleased that this prime £31m development will also create and safeguard construction jobs and provide a boost to the local economy. While working alongside our neighbours and contractors during the construction phase, the entire team will be focused on creating an outstanding new community and exceeding the hopes and aspirations of future Hayfield homeowners.”
The development – Hayfield’s 13th to start on site – is being part-funded by the housebuilder’s £67m finance facility from OakNorth Bank.
