The public open space within the development will include a pond and wetland area, formal and informal play areas; plus a mile-long jogging trail around the site perimeter with gym equipment at various points so that people can pursue an active lifestyle.
Financial contributions will include £1,396,000 towards pre-school and primary education; £435,000 for a bus service and other transport measures; £143,000 for sports facilities and £15,000 for recycling.
The creation of the community facilities and investment in the local area will be triggered by the progress of the development.
“As an independent housebuilder we are able to diversify our product mix and respond to local housing demand by taking a more flexible approach than some other businesses,” Martin added.
“Because of the scale of the development in Ross-on-Wye we have taken the decision to offer a choice of housing styles under the Edenstone Homes and Bluebell Homes brands so that whatever stage of life you are at there will be a home that’s the right size and style for you.
“Over the coming months and years we will be building homes suitable for every segment of the market – from first time buyers, to growing families and downsizers, and everything in between. There will even be a rare opportunity to purchase a brand new bungalow.”
The new homes will offer superb access to the beautiful Wye Valley and wider countryside, plus the county towns of Gloucester, Hereford and nearby Monmouth.
