Buckland Rise showhomes open

Bellway is following up the success of its Portland Gardens development at Peters Village with a range of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes at Buckland Rise, off Worrall Drive, in the same community alongside the River Medway.

This next Bellway phase now has a new sales centre and two showhomes highlighting quality interiors available in the new properties (pictured above and below).

Bellway Kent Sales Director Mark Harrop said: “We’ve been delighted by the response we’ve already had at Peters Village.

“It’s a wonderful location, with a peaceful riverside setting and a new primary school open, and is within easy reach of the A228, M2 and M20 and mainline and high-speed rail services.

“We are offering a great choice of apartments and houses to appeal to a wide range of customers, including families and commuters working in London, Maidstone or the Medway Towns.”

Slope re-work proposal for Peters Village quarry face

Peters Village developer Trenport has applied for permission to re-model part of the former chalk quarry from which the new 1,000-home community is arising near Wouldham.

Trenport Director Chris Hall explained: “With the sale of the latest development phase on the north west of the Peters Village site, it became clear that further work was needed to the adjoining slopes to ensure this area of former brown field land could be used to full advantage in the delivery of new homes.

“So, we have formally applied to Tonbridge & Malling Council to re-model the affected area, which includes a small paddock, though it has not been used for livestock or agriculture for many years.

“Assuming permission is given, work is expected to start this summer and will also require removal of a mixed hedge, cut back to within two feet of the ground a few weeks ago to avoid the risk from nesting birds using it this year.

“However, we will adhere to the strict practice we adopted across Peters Village from the start: to replace natural amenities lost to the development, whether this be a condition of planning or on a voluntary basis. So, the lost hedgerow will be compensated for by significant additional landscaping and installation of additional bird and bat boxes.

“As the SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) Great Crested Newt conservation and our active relocation of rare and endangered species show, we have a good record on this.”
