Construction well under way to build 85 new homes by Chalkdene Developments in Stevenage

3rd January 2021

Progress is well underway to build 85 new high-quality homes on the former Lonsdale School site in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.

Chalkdene Developments, a joint venture partnership between Morgan Sindall Group and HLL, are behind the exciting new Trig Point development, which will deliver 79 houses and six apartments on the six-acre site.

Chalkdene Developments has purchased the site from Hertfordshire County Council and entered into a contract with Lovell to build the development.

Trig Point will consist of 64 one, two and three bedroom homes for market sale. An additional 21 homes will be affordable, split between five houses for shared ownership and 16 for rent, which will also include six adapted for disabled residents.

Settle Group is purchasing the affordable rent and shared ownership homes including the adapted apartments. Hertfordshire County Council’s Adult Care Services team will be nominating people for the disabled units.

Ralph Sangster, Executive Member for Resources and Performance, said: “This development will continue to support Hertfordshire County Council’s Good Growth Ambitions and provides 85 high quality homes in Stevenage of which 21 will be affordable”.

Steve Faber, Managing Director of HLL, added: “We are delighted to be investing into another Chalkdene scheme; especially here, with the inclusion of six disability adapted units. We are confident the high quality design, family-friendly environment and excellent location will appeal to local homebuyers.”

Mary Parsons, Partnership Director at Lovell Partnerships, said: “This is a great example of partnership working and how, through the Chalkdene Developments joint venture, we can continue to support Herts County Council’s strategic objectives whilst also delivering much needed, high quality new homes.”

The first homes are expected to be completed in October 2021.
