The first residents have moved into their homes at a new housing development in Weston-super-Mare.
Bellway is building 150 new homes at Mead Fields, off Wolvershill Road, and with the first properties now complete, construction is progressing well on site.
The first phase of homes at the development sold within just a few months of them being released for sale in March, reflecting the growing need for new housing in the area.
When complete, the development will include 131 homes for private sale – including two-bedroom apartments and two, three and four-bedroom houses – and 19 affordable homes available for local people through rent or shared ownership.
Rachel Way, Sales Manager for Bellway South West, said: “It is great news that the first residents have now moved into their new homes at Mead Fields and a brand-new community is being created.
“It’s always an exciting moment when people get the keys to their new house – both for them as the buyer and for us as the developer.
“Customers here are attracted by the development’s location on the eastern edge of Weston-super-Mare. Mead Fields is only four miles from the town centre’s shops and entertainment facilities as well as the Grand Pier and the lovely beach.
“The site also has great transport links, just a mile from Worle railway station, for trains to Bristol and Taunton, and just over a mile from junction 21 of the M5 for journeys to Bristol, Gloucester or further afield.
“The variety of homes that are available at Mead Fields make this development desirable to first-time buyers, families, commuters and downsizers.”
There is a range of homes currently available to reserve at Mead Fields, including two-bedroom apartments priced from £204,995 and three-bedroom houses from £304,995.
Visitors to the development are able to look around the four-bedroom Milliner and Scrivener showhomes which can be viewed by appointment.
