Work begins on new Hilton housing development

Work has started on a new homes development in the Derbyshire village of Hilton, which will see significant financial investment in the local area.

Housebuilder Bellway is constructing 45 two, three, four and five-bedroom homes at Mousley Park, off Derby Road.

Outline plans for the 6.6-acre site development were approved by South Derbyshire District Council last year, with reserved matters permission granted in July this year.

As part of the planning agreement, Bellway will invest more than £102,000 in Hilton Primary School and more than £176,000 in John Port Spencer Academy in nearby Etwall. £17,000 will also go towards Wellbrook Medical Centre in Hilton, as well as £25,000 for a pedestrian crossing in Derby Road and £596,000 towards affordable housing provision. Further contributions will be made towards Hatton Village Hall and improvements at The Mease, home to Hilton Harriers Football Club.

Bellway East Midlands Sales Director, Carolyne Watkinson, said: “With our detailed plans now approved for new homes at Mousley Park, work is now well underway on site. This is a lovely modern development from a five-star builder in a peaceful village setting.

“Nevertheless, Mousley Park is in a very convenient location, half-a-mile from the nearest supermarket and a seven-minute walk from the local primary school.

“It’s ideal for commuters, because Willington railway station is only four miles away, and provides regular services to all the nearest cities, including Birmingham, Derby, and Nottingham, while for people travelling by car, junction 24A of the M1 is easy to reach.

“You can see why Mousley Park is already attracting enquiries from local people, even though it’s still early days in the life of the development.”
