Start date announced for next phase of £45m Scartho housing development
The developer behind a new £45m housing development in Scartho has announced the start date for the second phase of the scheme, with the first families currently taking up residence in the new properties.
At the beginning of June, the King’s Park development, situated next to the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital, saw its first buyers move in.
The first phase of the development, by E5 Living UK, includes a combination of 78 two and three-bedroom detached and semi-detached bungalows, some with garages and some without, as well as three-bed semi-detached houses.
This is set to be completed by next autumn.
The second phase involves the construction of a further 16 bungalows and retail units to serve the new “village-style” community, and will begin construction in August.
Further phases in the project will include housing for over-55s and assisted living accommodation.
E5 Living UK Director Kevin Stevens said: “This is a very exciting time as our vision for King’s Park has become a reality with the first residents moving in.
“The next phase is key in creating the community with retail facilities within walking distance of their homes and the development of shared amenity spaces. The buoyant housing market has undoubtedly helped with interest in King’s Park but it’s been the design and quality and the large number of single storey homes that have helped us secure sales.”
The homes were designed by Cleethorpes architects Hodsons, and are being built by Humberston-based JemBuild. Local estate agents Crofts are responsible for the marketing of the new development.
Director Gary Croft said: “There has been a really positive response to this development which is delivering a very high quality for new build homes in larger residential schemes.
“The standard of the specification has amazed buyers and led to a healthy number of reservations. The first residents are happily in their new homes and we look forward to welcoming many more in the coming months.”
