Regeneration takes the form of new houses for sale in Hellingly

21 January 2011

A historic site in Hellingly has had new life breathed into it thanks to Persimmon Homes South East. From its days as a former hospital, the site has undergone a major transformation – most recently the demolition of the water tower – as the land is transformed to make way for more housing at Persimmon’s Roebuck Park development.

With members of Hellingly Parish Council in attendance including, Chairman, David White, Cllr Fran Woolston and Gill Hesselgrave, the water tower was demolished on Tuesday 7th December. Standing at 50 metres tall the tower has formed part of the landscape for over 112 years.

A number of explosive charges were detonated to remove the tower as part of the 400 home development which is already well underway.

Jason Stokes, sales director for Persimmon Homes South East, comments; “As part of our commitment to creating communities as well as houses, we worked hard to carefully plan the Roebuck Park development, taking into consideration that some buildings, such as the water tower have formed an iconic part of the landscape for an extremely long time.

“The tower had fallen into disrepair after a few years of neglect, however, Roebuck Park is an excellent example of our dedication to regenerate formerly used land in order to create a quality residential area and one where local people aspire to live.”

The demolition formed part of extensive works to not only build sought-after new houses for sale in Hellingly but also to provide a 25 acre country park and a number of children’s play areas. In addition the former cricket pitch and pavilion will be returned to their former glory and a new community hall will be created from the social club on site.

Currently Roebuck Park offers a range of two through to five bedroom homes. The designs have been constructed with the most up to date methods of construction with Space4 timber frame technology so have been deemed 50 per cent more energy efficient than an older equivalent.

Prices at Roebuck Park range from £174,995 for a two bedroom design through to £332,500 for a five bedroom executive property.
