Bellway has started work on a 254-home development in Tongham.
The housebuilder is set to deliver 127 homes at Admiral Park, on land to the west of The Street, as part of a wider development.
Daniel Williamson, Sales Director for Bellway South London, said: “Construction work has started on this new development which will include a variety of homes to appeal to a wide mix of buyers. The homes range from two-bedroom properties suitable for first-time buyers to three and four-bedroom detached family homes.
“This development has a beautiful rural backdrop which is within walking distance of the village centre of Tongham. Admiral Park will cater for the needs of local buyers and those looking to move to the area.
“The homes will be an attractive prospect for professionals looking to commute to towns such as Aldershot and Guildford, given the development’s proximity to major roads, and the rail links to London Waterloo from Farnham and Aldershot will further enhance its appeal.”
The 32.5-acre site will include 11.2 acres of public open space, featuring a children’s play area. An additional 43.7 acres of Sustainable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANG) will be created on land to the west of the residential development. A total of 300 new trees will be planted on the site.
Of the 254 homes to be built at Admiral Park, 165 will be for private sale, with the remaining 89 being made available for affordable rent or shared ownership.
Bellway will contribute to the planning obligations of the wider development, which include a total of £2.3 million in funding for local services and infrastructure, such as roads and education. Farnham Heath End School will receive a £900,000 investment and Ash Grange Primary School will benefit from a £840,000 contribution.
Bellway’s first homes are due to be released onto the market this autumn.
Admiral Park is well placed to access major road routes including the A3, A31, M3 and M25. Farnham and Aldershot railway stations are both about three miles away with services to Guildford, Clapham Junction and Waterloo.
