Alconbury Weald set for second phase

 Following the successful delivery of the gateway development, award-winning developer Hopkins Homes has received planning permission for a second phase within this exceptional new community.

Fronting onto a brand new cricket pitch, the new homes will range from contemporary one and two bedroom apartments to two, three and four-bedroom family homes and will deliver 19 affordable properties that will be sold to a housing association.

As seen in Hopkins Homes' first phase, the new homes will be designed to reflect the architecture of the surrounding villages. Lee Barnard, sales and marketing director at Hopkins Homes, said: "We are delighted with the response to our first phase of homes at Alconbury Weald. A thrividng community is already well established within our gateway development so it's very exciting that we have been given planning permission to delivery another phase."

Hopkins Homes is East Anglia's largest independent homebuilder and was appointed as the first residential building partners by site owners and master developers Urban&Civic.

Tim Leathes, development director at Urban&Civic, said: "As one of the first housebuilders at Alconbury Weald, Hopkins Homes has had a strong and positive impact on the growing community and it's homes have been very popular.

"We're delighted to see the company's ongoing commitment to being part of the Alconbury Weald community; building more quality homes alongside the green space and facilities in place and the future glade and offices coming forward around them.

"Alconbury Weald is fast becoming one of the most sought-after communities in the area, popular both with local buyers and those moving from further afield - so we are thrilled to be continuing our relationship with Urban&Civic into this new phase."

The homes lie among extensive landscaping including a causeway bridge over water features, a lake and more than 18,000 trees.

Alconbury Weald offers a range of facilities including Ermine Street Church Academy primary school, a cafe and gym, a community park and extensive neighbourhood play areas.

Work is set to commence on the second phase from Hopkins Homes in September, with the first homes becoming available in July 2020.
