Housebuilder Redrow is set to join the UK’s largest residential scheme after signing a deal to build 200 plots…

Developer Urban & Civic has signed a deal with housebuilder Redrow to build 200 plots at their Alconbury Weald site in Cambridgeshire.

The scheme is set to see more than 5,000 new homes built in total on the site. Redrow has been given the third parcel of land for development, following two other developers: Hopkins Homes and Morris Homes. The former is already onsite, while the latter is expected to start construction in September.

Urban & Civic have contracted almost 500 plots across 41 developable acres. A primary school has also been designed by architect Allford Hall Monaghan Morris and built by Morgan Sindall. This will open in September.

Urban & Civic’s CEO Nigel Hugill said: “Redrow are reputed for the quality of their housing offer.

“The fact that they are prepared to complete arrangements at the current time is both a reflection of our shared aspirations for Alconbury and the strength of the Urban&Civic licence model.

“We have established a reputation for providing housebuilders with exactly what suits them at the moment; the ability to recycle capital rapidly in a carefully crafted sales environment.”

John Mann, Managing Director of Redrow Homes (South Midlands), said: “Alconbury Weald is a great location for us, given our existing developments in St Neots and Hauxton, near Cambridge.

“We plan to build a mix of three, four and five-bedroom homes inspired by our Heritage Collection, which will complement and enhance the existing offering.”
