Bellway London has acquired a new parcel of land to extend its 556-home Copperhouse Green development in Dartford.
The site, off Vauxhall Place, will be used to build an additional 88 apartments to the south of the existing development, which is located to the east of Lowfield Street.
The new homes will be constructed across three apartment buildings, taking the total number of apartments at Copperhouse Green to 644.
One block will comprise 27 apartments for private sale, while the other two blocks will contain a total of 61 affordable homes, of which 38 will be available for shared ownership and 23 for affordable rent.
The three new buildings will join the 17 other apartment buildings at Copperhouse Green, which is the largest development currently being constructed by Bellway London in the capital. As well as delivering 644 new homes, the regeneration of the former brewery site will also include a micro-brewery, restaurant and bar, and provide funding for improvements to the neighbouring Dartford Park.
John Haggerstone, Construction Director for Bellway London, said: “Copperhouse Green is a flagship regeneration scheme for Dartford which is transforming this derelict site in the heart of the town into a new neighbourhood of high-quality apartments.
“This second phase of the development will complement the mix of private homes being delivered in phase one and will make a significant contribution towards the supply of much-needed affordable housing in the borough.
“Planning permission for the additional 88 homes at Copperhouse Green has already been granted, so the purchase of this land off Vauxhall Place will enable us to start construction work on site in the coming months. Work is progressing well on the first phase of apartments and we anticipate that the first residents will be moving into their homes this summer.”
A new phase of homes at Copperhouse Green has recently launched to the public. The Artisan Lodge features a range of studio, one and two-bedroom apartments, with select plots having views over Central Park.
Bellway is currently selling a variety of studio, one and two-bedroom apartments at Copperhouse Green, with prices ranging from £186,995 to £334,995.
