Two housing developments which will provide 400 new homes in Ripley will open to the public this month.
Bellway and Ashberry Homes began construction on the joint scheme, off Whiteley Road, in August last year and both developments will have been opened to the public by the end of June.
Bellway is building 278 homes at Coppice Heights, while Ashberry Homes is delivering the remaining 132 homes at Amber Rise.
As well as providing much-needed two, three and four-bedroom houses for private sale, 40 of the homes across the two developments will be designated as affordable housing available for local people through rent or shared ownership.
Rachel Fay, Sales Director for Bellway East Midlands, said: “The properties we are building at Coppice Heights will help meet the rising demand we’ve been seeing in Derbyshire for new high-quality housing.
“As part of the development, 27 acres of public green open space will be provided, including a children’s play area at the entrance of the site.
“The wide range of house types on offer at the development will allow a variety of people to find their ideal home here, from first-time buyers looking for a smaller two-bedroom house, to growing families looking to upsize, as well as those wanting at-home office space.
“Interest in Coppice Heights is already high and we were really pleased to welcome the first people onto the site in recent days.”
Heidi Higgins, Sales Manager for Ashberry Homes East Midlands, said: “Amber Rise benefits from a picturesque location on the edge of Ripley in Derbyshire, while there’s easy access to the A38 and A610, for travel to Derby, Nottingham or Mansfield.
“With the combination of high-quality new homes and the green open space being provided, we expect the new homes here to be popular with both local people as well as those looking to relocate.”
Showhomes for the developments are set to open towards the beginning of next month, with the first residents anticipated to be able to move into their new homes in August.
