We will be providing something for everyone, with a mix of houses, from new homes to buy, new homes for shared ownership and new homes for affordable rent. There will also be a number of wheelchair-accessible homes.
Arranged within the individually designed character areas – The Green Spine, The Avenue and The Local Streets – each area will offer its own distinct architectural style from traditional style properties to more modern homes.
There will be 280 new homes delivered as part of Spencer’s Park Phase 2 West, of which 35% will be affordable.
We are proposing a range of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes to meet local housing need.
Houses will have rear gardens and apartments will have usable balconies. All the homes will have superfast broadband.
Parking is provided in line with typical expectations for developments of this nature, to ensure that adequate provision is made, and streets are not cluttered with inappropriate casual parking.
The apartments and some smaller two-bed houses have one space. The remaining two bed houses and three bed houses have two spaces per house and the larger four bed houses have three spaces per house.
Our current proposals provide a parking ratio of 1.6 spaces per dwelling, very close to the ratio approved in the outline consent (1.5 spaces) but also allowing for visitor parking. All dwellings will be provided with cycle parking.
All the homes will be built to exceptional standards with a focus on energy efficiency and green living, making people’s lives and the environment a better place to be.
New homes, created using modern methods of construction
Spencer’s Park Phase 2 is the largest site in Homes England’s Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) showcase programme. All houses will be built in a factory and delivered to the site in panels, or, in parts of Spencer’s Park Phase 2 East, as whole rooms. Apartments will be delivered by traditional build with sub-assembly components including pre constructed roof sections and bolt on balconies.
By using modern methods of construction, we can build energy efficient homes consistently faster, without compromising on quality. This means less disruption, with fewer lorries travelling backwards and forwards to the site to deliver materials and components, less noise, less waste, and less pollution in the surrounding area.
