Barratt & David Wilson Homes have become the fourth housebuilder to join the Wintringham development, with an application for 336 homes within the first phase of the new community coming forward in St Neots.
The application not only includes the homes, but also features a linear park and pocket park which are a core part of the active connections and green space within the designs, and connecting to the wider green spaces across Wintringham.
Homes include a mix of houses and apartments ranging from 1 bedroom to 4 bedroom dwellings, of which 67 dwellings are coming forward as part of the Affordable Housing offer at Wintringham, which includes shared ownership as well as “Affordable rented” homes.
The mix of homes also include some firsts for the development including BDW’s Amber house type, which seeks to provide homeowners looking for one step up from an apartment: the homes have their own private front door; are freehold as oppose to leasehold therefore have no ground rent and no service charge; and lie adjacent to communal amenity space or the park areas.
The application also sees the development’s first bungalows, some of which will be available for much needed affordable rent options and all of which will be located close to the future local centre, which will have shops, services and leisure facilities.
As part of the sustainability drive at Wintringham, each home will come with electrical charging points, and the layout has been designed to encourage safe walking and cycling, with easy access to green space on your doorstep and connecting with the wider cycle and pedestrian network of Wintringham and beyond.
Alison Raine, Sales Director at BDW Northampton said: “The team have a long history with Wintringham St Neots and we are so pleased to now be bringing forward these exciting new homes in the amazing setting of the growing new community. We hope to be starting to build early in the New Year, with the first homes going on sale in Spring 2022. Please check the website www.barratthomes.co.uk or www.dwh.co.uk to stay up to date.”
Joe Dawson, from Urban&Civic added: “This application is a key milestone for the development, as it is a large number of homes and offers a great diversity to suit people at all stages of their lives. Close to the school, and with some important green connections and spaces within it, we look forward to continuing to work with the BDW team to bring this vision to reality.”
