Bellway Thames Gateway is preparing to welcome visitors to a new homes development on the site of a former plant nursery in Swanley.
The housebuilder is delivering 60 new properties at Highlands Grange, on land off Highlands Hill, which was formerly occupied by Harrington’s Nursery.
The developer is releasing the initial collection of new homes for sale when it launches the site on Saturday (27 January).
Highlands Grange will consist of 36 two, three and four-bedroom houses available for private sale and 24 affordable homes, including apartments and houses, available for local people through shared ownership or low-cost rent. All homes will benefit from an electric vehicle charging point.
The development will feature public open space and a variety of ecological measures to protect wildlife, such as bat and bird boxes, insect hotels, habitat piles, and hedgehog highways. There are further plans for a community orchard and wildflower meadow planting to support and increase biodiversity on the site.
James Pitt, Sales Manager at Bellway Thames Gateway, said: “This is a highly anticipated launch as there has been a lot of interest in this development. Harrington’s Nursery was a very well-known business in the area and we are taking this five-acre brownfield site and transforming it into an attractive new neighbourhood bringing much-needed housing.
“This development is designed to provide a sustainable and ecologically friendly environment to benefit wildlife and also to encourage residents to connect with the natural world on their doorstep by providing green open space to explore.
“Meanwhile, Swanley Park, which covers 60 acres, is just a 15-minute walk away, with activities ranging from a well-equipped playground to a water park and a boating lake.
“Highlands Grange is also within walking distance of Swanley’s supermarkets, shops, pubs and cafes and has excellent transport links to London and the wider region. The train station, offering direct services into the capital within half an hour, is less than two miles away, while it’s also just over two miles from the M20/M25 junction and a 10-minute journey from the A2.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming the first visitors to the site at the launch and starting the process of helping people find their new home here.”
Bellway is building 60 new properties at Highlands Grange, comprising two, three and four-bedroom houses. Priced from £437,995 and £694,995 respectively.
