Bellway is preparing to start construction on 181 new homes in the Stoke suburb of Meir, after detailed plans were approved by the local authority.
The development, to be known as The Crescent, is one half of a joint 350-home project with another developer on land to the west of Caverswall Lane.
Bellway’s detailed plans were given the go-ahead by Stoke-on-Trent City Council in late 2021.
The Crescent will occupy two land parcels within the wider site and provide a mix of two, three and four-bedroom houses, with the first homes expected to be released for sale in August 2022.
As part of the planning agreement, the developers will contribute almost £2.6 million towards essential services in the local area.
Marie Richards, Sales Director for Bellway West Midlands, said: “With our detailed plans for The Crescent approved by Stoke-on-Trent Council, we are now looking forward to seeing the site take shape as building work starts on the first homes.
“The Crescent will deliver much-needed new housing to Meir, as well as significant financial investment into the area, with the wider development including £2.5 million towards local education through the planning agreement.
“This makes The Crescent a positive addition to Stoke that will improve services and facilities for the local community, while also helping to meet the high demand for new homes.
“Construction work at The Crescent should take approximately four years to complete but we are already planning to launch the development in August of this year when the first homes will be released for sale.
“Due to its desirable location near the Staffordshire Moorlands, with great local amenities and excellent transport connections, we are expecting high levels of interest in these homes from families, first-time buyers and commuters.”
