Work due to start on new homes in Trimley St Martin at scheme generating more than £1.2 million in investment for the area


Work is due to start on construction at a development in the Suffolk village of Trimley St Martin which will generate more than £1.2 million in payments to support the area’s infrastructure.

Bellway is to build 139 new homes at Kingsfleet Park, off High Road, following approval of detailed plans for the scheme being given by East Suffolk Council.

The housebuilder has agreed to pay £786,000 towards local infrastructure as part of the planning agreement and a further £500,000 through the Community Infrastructure Levy.

The homebuilder will also provide land for a new primary school with a pre-school as part of the development as well as a large area of public green open space.

Jenny Walker, Sales Director for Bellway Essex, said: “Kingsfleet Park will bring enormous benefits to the area both in terms of the high-quality homes we are building here, and the investment in the area which will help in a variety of ways, especially in education and transport.

“We are providing the land for a new school to be built and this all helps keep the village sustainable and thriving.

“And sustainability runs through the whole development, with community green open space, the planting of more than 100 new trees and environmentally friendly measures built into each home.

“It’s an attractive location too, being in a convenient spot only 10 minutes from Felixstowe and 20 minutes from Ipswich.”

The development will feature a range of homes styles and sizes including 86 two to four-bedroom properties for private sale and seven self-build properties.

There will also be 46 affordable homes ranging from one to four-bedroom designs, comprising 23 properties for affordable rent, 11 shared ownership homes and 12 for sale through the Government’s First Homes initiative.

The development is expected to be launched with homes available to reserve in August.

All the homes at Kingsfleet Park will have solar panels, electric vehicle charging points and cycle storage.

Bellway’s investment in local infrastructure includes more than £500,000 towards education, including early years places, the provision of the new primary school and a temporary classroom. It will also pay £36,000 towards a new cycle scheme and £100,000 to improve bus services, as well as £59,000 towards public rights of way.
