Bellway passes halfway mark at Wingate
More than 130 homes have now been completed at the housebuilder’s Wellfield Rise project in the County Durham village.
The 250-home Wellfield Rise development, off Wellfield Road, will feature 20 acres of green open space when completed, along with two-, three- and four-bedroom homes.
A total of 147 homes have been sold, with all but four of the 138 houses now built being occupied by new residents.
The development covers nearly 46 acres and will feature a green corridor through the northern part of the site, along with improved pedestrian and cycle links to the neighbouring Hart to Haswell Walkway, which lies along the route of a dismantled railway.
Hayley Teasdale, sales manager for Bellway Durham, said: “Construction is progressing well at Wellfield Rise, and we remain on track to finish building work at the development by 2025.
“The wide-open spaces at this development are proving to be a huge draw for buyers as people appreciate the benefits to their physical and mental wellbeing of being able to step out of their front doors and embrace the natural environment.”
The 250 homes are made up of 225 properties for private sale and 25 affordable homes for local people, including 19 for sale at a discount to market value and six available on a low-cost rent basis.
Construction work started on site in 2020 and is expected to be finished by 2025.
