Work has started on the first phase of a development near Scarborough which will see 44 acres of land transformed into 1,350 new homes.
Construction is well underway on the first homes at Cornelian Fields, which are being built as part of the Middle Deepdale and Eastfield regeneration project from K2 Regeneration, a joint venture partnership from Kebbell Homes and Keepmoat.
Phase one of Cornelian Fields will feature a collection of 62 three and four-bedroom homes, the first of which will be revealed to the public in November alongside a sales office and show homes.
Linda Tillisch, Northern Sales Manager at Kebbell Homes, saif: “We are delighted to have begun work on this highly anticipated development of new homes, after many months of building the roads and infrastructure.
“We are currently working on two show homes, which will provide home buyers with the first opportunity to see what the new homes will look like when they are launched in November.
“The homes we are building here have been thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of the area’s home buyers, with a focus on family-friendly living spaces, 21st Century comfort and high quality finishes.
“Homes will be built to a high specification and will feature our renowned attention to detail, with a limited number available to purchase off-plan once the development is launched.
“We are confident this development will help transform the area for future generations by creating a sustainable and healthy new community, and the location is sure to prove popular with home buyers wanting that sought-after balance of rural and town life.”
The regeneration project is expected to take a number of years to complete and alongside the new homes will include 60 apartments, an extra care complex, a primary school, community hall, small scale retail provision, footpaths, landscaping and public open spaces, as well as a link road with a bridge to connect the A64 and A165.
