United Living Group and partners celebrate start on site to provide 148 new homes

United Living New Homes has started work to develop 148 new homes at Glenvale Park in Wellingborough, forming part of a larger urban extension of around 3000 new homes to the north-west of the town.

On behalf of leading national housing association, Stonewater, of the 148 new affordable homes, 74 will be available for social and affordable rent. There will also be 35 new homes available for shared ownership, and 39 being offered through the Rent to Buy scheme, allowing customers to rent a home at 80 per cent of the market rent, whilst they save towards a deposit and after five years, buy their own home.

The new homes will be a mixture of houses and apartments. The £23 million project will utilise over £7 million of Homes England funding.  Glenvale Park is a brand new neighbourhood for Wellingborough, which is conveniently located providing easy access to major transport links to rail & road as well as further access to local towns & major cities.

It brings together six housebuilders who will each develop a parcel of land, creating a vibrant and high-quality development and providing a substantial number of homes to suit a variety of customers. Plans also include two new primary schools, a community hub, local shops, and green spaces for new residents and the local community.

Wellingborough has seen a recent increase in affordable homes being built year on year, with Stonewater’s new homes contributing to a total of 675 affordable homes at Glenvale Park, bridging the gap between the provision of, and demand for, affordable housing.

 

Chris Montague, Director of Development (East and North) at Stonewater said: “We are thrilled to be starting work on this exciting new development, and to be providing such a large number of much-needed affordable homes for customers in Wellingborough. 

The variation of housing we’ll be providing at Glenvale Park will offer great choice for customers looking for a safe, sustainable and affordable place to call home, and I look forward to seeing work progress on our homes within the site.” 

Geoff Brown, Project Manager, United Living New Homes, said: “We are delighted to have started building work at Glenvale Park to create affordable, desirable homes helping people get on the housing ladder.

Furthermore, the sustainable aspects of Glenvale Park, such as EV charging points complement our own sustainability goals as an organisation.”
