Plans approved for 400 new homes in Ripley

Construction work on new homes in the Derbyshire town of Ripley is set to begin after detailed plans for the scheme were approved by the local authority.

Bellway East Midlands and Ashberry Homes East Midlands are building 400 new homes on land off Whiteley Road, alongside 27 acres of public open space and a children’s play area.

Outline plans for the development were approved last year and reserved matters planning permission was granted by Amber Valley Borough Council in July.

Bellway’s development will be known as Coppice Heights and will include 264 new one, two, three and four-bedroom homes, while Ashberry Homes is building 144 new two, three and four-bedroom homes at Amber Rise. 10 per cent of the new homes will be designated as affordable housing for local people through shared ownership or rent.

Sales Director for Bellway East Midlands, Carolyne Watkinson, said: “We are very pleased to get started on delivering a mix of homes for local people in Ripley after receiving planning permission.

“We’ve planned this range of homes to meet the needs of a wide variety of buyers by making sure there is something for everyone here, from smaller homes for first-time buyers through to larger houses which offer lots of space for families.

“There’s a growing demand for new homes in this part of Derbyshire and we are looking forward to starting work here.

“We hope to release the first homes for sale next year.”
