£12m housing development for Peak District town

CGI of The Coppice

Construction has begun on a £12 million development of 47 new homes in the town of Chapel-en-le-Frith on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District.

Partnership housing specialist Lovell is developing the site off Manchester Road, which will be named The Coppice. The firm is creating 33 brand-new homes for general sale and 14 homes for Peaks & Plains Housing Trust which will be available for rent and shared ownership. The overall scheme is set to be complete in autumn 2018.

Robert Adams, regional managing director for national developer Lovell, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be bringing these new homes at The Coppice to Chapel-en-le-Frith.

“As well as properties for sale, there will be homes for shared ownership and rent providing urgently-needed affordable homes for people with local connections, enabling them to get their own home in this vibrant community. We’re excited to be bringing the company’s expertise in developing high-quality homes to this, our first scheme working with Peaks & Plains Housing Trust”.

Nigel Bennett, assistant director partnerships for Peaks & Plains Housing Trust, added: “This opportunity to provide affordable homes on this prestigious development marks an exciting new partnership with Lovell and continues our work within High Peak. The mix and range of properties available allows real choice and options for anyone seeking a new home in Chapel-en-le-Frith”.
