The housebuilder began work on the site off Willoughby Road in 2013, and has built a total of 107 homes since then.

Meanwhile, construction work at Chestnut Homes’ neighbouring Bridgeways development is set to recommence once the nationwide lockdown is lifted.

The developer is building 103 new homes at Bridgeways, 30 per cent of which will be provided as affordable housing for rent or shared ownership.

In line with the planning agreement, Chestnut Homes will invest more than £370,000 in local services, including £191,669 for primary education, £136,841 towards secondary and sixth form education, and £41,921 for health services.

The housebuilder is also providing a new play area and creating green corridors throughout the development to increase biodiversity on the site.

David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “While all the homes have now been sold at Willoughby Chase, we are continuing to deliver high quality homes in Alford at Bridgeways.

“Willoughby Chase was a very popular development and there has been a significant level of interest in the homes at Bridgeways from both local residents and people looking to relocate near to the coast.

“Following the announcement of social distancing measures in March, we took the decision to stop work at all of our construction sites.

“We look forward to restarting work at Bridgeways when the Government deems it safe and appropriate to do so.”
