The Bloor Homes properties will comprise a range of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes being built on a 2.6 hectare site to the north east of Longstanton, next to the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway.

The first homes are now on sale from Bloor’s sales office off Station Road which is now officially open to the public, and the first residents will move into the development in the spring of next year.

Monika Hanlon, Regional Sales Director for Bloor Eastern, said:

“It is an honour to be the first housing developer to deliver new homes in Northstowe, the largest town planned in many years.

“This is an extremely exciting development which will help to meet the high demand for housing in the area by creating a vibrant and sustainable new neighbourhood in an attractive location within easy reach of Cambridge city centre.”

The first primary school is completed.  It is located close to the first homes and will open next year to Northstowe residents.  Northstowe residents will also benefit from super-fast broadband connection and will be just a stone’s throw from the Longstanton Guided Bus Stop.

The Bloor Homes development will form part of the first phase of Northstowe, being developed by Gallagher Estates, and which is planned to include up to 1,500 homes, a primary school, community building, shops, business premises, open space and sports facilities.

Four more housebuilders are going to start building at phase one over the coming year; Taylor Wimpey, Bovis Homes, Linden Homes and Barratt Homes.  Taylor Wimpey and Linden Homes already have planning applications in with the Planning Authority for the next 300 homes and plan to start early next year subject to planning consent.

Andy Lawson from Gallagher Estates said;

“2017 will be a busy year with lots of activity across the whole of Northstowe.  It will be great to see the new community growing and the town beginning to form”
