Bellway North London is building a total of 374 new homes across two phases – with the first phase of 219 homes including 95 affordable properties for local people through low-cost rent and shared ownership – on land off St James’ Way.

The developer has now completed 60 of these affordable homes. These are a selection of two, three and four-bedroom homes which have all been officially handed over to housing association settle.

Ali Maruf, Managing Director for Bellway North London, said: “This partnership between Bellway, settle and East Herts Council demonstrates the wider benefits new homes developments bring to communities.

These high-quality homes within our St James’ Park development will help local people for many years to come. For some, they will be able to rent a home at an affordable rate while others will buy a share of their first home.

We hope the first residents, and those who follow, enjoy becoming part of this thriving new community within Bishop’s Stortford.”

Gavin Cansfield, Chief Executive at settle, said: “I’m delighted to join residents and our partners at East Herts Council and Bellway to mark the progress of these new homes, the first we have developed in this area. At settle we’re committed to providing quality affordable, sustainable homes and investing in neighbourhoods that people feel proud to live in. The new homes at St James’ Park are a great example of that ambition.”

East Herts Councillor Mione Goldspink, Executive Member for Neighbourhoods, said: “I thoroughly enjoyed meeting with residents and hearing how happy they are in their new homes. Our ambition, as part of the council’s new joint administration, is to boost the number of affordable homes we’re delivering across East Herts.

Working together with our housing association partners is essential, so I was especially pleased to welcome settle to East Herts and see the high quality of the homes they have delivered here in Bishop’s Stortford.”

The first phase of Bellway at St James’ Park comprises 219 properties, while the second phase will provide a further 155 homes.

Both phases form part of the wider St James’ Park neighbourhood being created at the southern edge of the town. As well as 750 new homes and a new site for The Bishop’s Stortford High School, plans also include a new primary school, care home and employment space.

There is currently a range of two-bedroom apartments, and two, three and four-bedroom houses available to reserve at Bellway at St James’ Park, with prices starting from £322,500.
