Construction work finished at Highnam housing development

A new development in Highnam has now been completed, with all of the new homes there now built and sold.

Bellway has provided 88 two, three, four and five-bedroom homes at Lassington Reach, off Lassington Lane.

The housebuilder is now planning to give home-hunters another chance to buy a new home in the area, having recently submitted detailed plans to build 50 properties on a site five miles from Highnam, on land east of Hempsted Lane in Gloucester.

The reserved matters application to Gloucester City Council includes proposals for 30 four and five-bedroom houses for private sale, and 20 affordable homes comprising one and two-bedroom apartments and three and four-bedroom houses. Some of the affordable housing will be suitable for wheelchair users.

The proposed development will also include cycleways, footpaths, and the restoration of an orchard at the south of the site.

Sales Director for Bellway Wales, Billie Oaten, said: “As the last homes have now been built and sold at Lassington Reach, it has been great to see a new community gradually forming, with a real mix of buyers finding themselves their ideal home at the development.

“Customers here have been drawn by the high-quality, great-value homes in a peaceful Gloucestershire location, within easy reach of the cathedral city of Gloucester.

“Our new planned development off Hempsted Lane in Gloucester will also deliver a wide range of homes and we look forward to working with the local authority to move forward with the plans in due course.

“The site offers views of Gloucester Cathedral and the steeple of St Nicholas Church, as well as the warehouse buildings of the city’s docks.

“The development will bring a new lease of life to the area as we welcome new residents, while also restoring the historic orchard at the south of the site.”

Final homes snapped up at Highnam development

All 88 homes have now sold at a popular Bellway development near Gloucester.

The site is Lassington Reach, a development of three, four and five-bedroom homes in the Gloucestershire village of Highnam.

Carly Maidment, sales manager for Bellway Wales said:

“We are really pleased that so many buyers have found their dream home at Lassington Reach.

“The demand locally for new houses was clearly there – it’s an attractive development in a fine Gloucestershire village surrounded by countryside and yet just three miles from Gloucester.

“And Bellway is still a five-star builder, meaning more than 90 per cent of buyers would recommend us to a friend.

“But buyers who missed out at Lassington Reach need not despair. We have two new sites nearby which are set to launch later in the year, so we will continue to meet the high demand for homes in the county.”

As part of the planning agreement for the development, Bellway invested more than £270,000 in local services.

Of this, £180,000 went towards local sports facilities, £50,000 towards play equipment at Highnam Recreational Park and £40,000 towards Highnam Surgery. There were also donations towards local recycling and dog waste bins.

Building work is currently on hold at Bellway’s Pirton Fields in Churchdown and Millbrook Grove in Brockworth and will recommence later in the year.

Prices for the homes at these two developments are yet to be confirmed. For more information, visit bellway.co.uk.
