Work begins on 130 new Bellway homes in Peterborough

Bellway has started work on a new housing development on land that was previously part of the East of England Showground in Peterborough.

Peterborough City Council gave the go-ahead for the developer to build 128 new homes on 13.5 acres of land, close to the village of Alwalton.

There will be 113 homes for private sale and 15 affordable properties for shared ownership or low-cost rent.

The development, which will be called Elder Brook, will launch in September this year when a sales office will open on site.

Phil Standen, Managing Director of Bellway Eastern Counties, said: “We have been eager to start the construction work at Elder Brook because this development will provide a much-needed boost to housing in the area.

“To that end, we have worked closely with Peterborough City Council throughout the planning process to ensure we deliver a development which meets the needs of the local community. 

“The focus at this development will be on retaining the natural green spaces throughout. Our guiding principle is to create an integrated and thoughtful development which is in keeping with its rural surroundings.”

Bellway plans to open two showhomes at Elder Brook early in 2023.
