Bellway starts work on 130-home Oldham development

Typical Bellway home

Work has begun on a 130-home development in Oldham, by housebuilder, Bellway.

The 12.82 acre site is located on Linney Lane in Shaw. Formerly a distribution centre, the land will be transformed into a residential development offering high quality new build three- and four-bedroom properties.

Known as Old Brook View, a reference to the River Beal that runs through the site, the new development will provide a range of semi detached and detached houses, all with private gardens and one or two allocated car parking spaces and/or garage

Part of Bellway’s Artisan Collection, the properties at Old Brook View are individually designed with a superb internal and external specification including many features to ensure a flexible and modern living space for discerning purchasers.

Particular attention will also be given to the development itself, with Bellway naturalising a culverted section of the River Beal, opening and widening the channel.

This new and improved watercourse will be surrounded by areas of public open space, forming a green corridor through the development.

Grace Yarlett, sales director at Bellway Manchester, said: “The plans for Old Brook View are fantastic. The development will provide a superb range of properties for buyers, as well as extensive landscaped grounds and pathways, incorporating the river, creating a semi-rural feel.”

Bellway worked with Manchester’s Gateley solicitors on the planning and Chester’s APD (Astle Planning & Design) on the design of the development.

In addition to the new development, Bellway has made a significant Section 106 contribution totalling £278,932 and has allocated 26 properties to be sold at discounted market value.
