The first residents at Bellway’s Stoughton Park development in Oadby have now moved into their new homes.
Bellway is delivering 221 homes at the site off Gartree Road at the north-eastern edge of the town, where construction work began in the autumn of 2020.
There will be 146 properties for private sale, featuring a mix of two to five-bedroom houses, and 75 affordable homes for local people through shared ownership or rent.
Kenny Lattimore, Sales Manager for Bellway East Midlands, said: “It is always a pleasure to welcome the first residents into their homes at a new development, particularly one as highly sought after as Stoughton Park.
“The fact that more than 1,800 people registered their interest with us prior to the launch demonstrates just how much demand there is for these new homes. With 29 different house designs at Stoughton Park, there is a wide range of properties to suit different needs and budgets.
“The attractive yet convenient semi-rural location is also proving extremely popular with buyers. The development sits on the edge of the beautiful Leicestershire countryside but is just a short drive from Leicester city centre, while the easy access to the A6, A47, and the city’s outer ring road is ideal for commuters.
“Many of the first homes at Stoughton Park have been purchased by families attracted by the good choice of schools within walking distance of the site. This has already helped to create a vibrant new community within the development and we look forward to welcoming more residents to this emerging neighbourhood over the coming months.”
Bellway’s Stoughton Park is part of a wider 310-home scheme being delivered in partnership with its sister brand Ashberry Homes, which is building 89 homes at the neighbouring Horwood Gardens development.
Between them, the two developments will provide a total of 217 properties for private sale and 93 affordable homes.
The wider plans for the scheme also include large public open space, woodland, and a reconfigured car park providing 91 spaces for the Cow and Plough pub and commercial units at Stoughton Grange.
