Construction is coming to an end at a Whitchurch housing development which has brought 102 new homes to the local area as well as helping a local horse charity.

Bellway South West is now building the final properties at The Bridles, off Staunton Lane, alongside public open space, a children’s play area and new allotments, with 41 of the new homes provided as affordable housing for local people.

The land was formerly owned by HorseWorld, a horse rescue charity based at neighbouring Keynes Farm, and the proceeds of the sale of the land helped to secure the charity’s financial future.

As part of the planning agreement for the development with Bath and North East Somerset Council, Bellway is also making substantial contributions towards local infrastructure and facilities, including £350,000 towards primary education and nearly £260,000 towards early years childcare.

We have been building at The Bridles for two years now and in that time we have delivered a range of high-quality homes for people in Whitchurch, as well as showing our support for the surrounding area.

The development has had a positive impact on the local area, with a new children’s play area and allotments being provided within the site, and the land transaction securing the future of former land owners HorseWorld, which continues its valuable work on an adjacent site.

Although all of the homes at The Bridles have now been sold, those who are interested in purchasing a Bellway property can still do so at one of the many developments we are currently constructing across the region.

All the two, three and four-bedroom houses at The Bridles are now reserved, with many buyers already moved into their new homes.

Bellway anticipates construction on the site will be completed this autumn.

Bellway South West is currently building new homes at various locations across the region, with developments in Bristol, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire.
