Construction of 330 more homes at Marham Park estate, in Bury St Edmunds, has started

Building work has begun on two neighbouring developments in Bury St Edmunds which will result in 330 new homes.

The developments are being built by Bellway and sister brand Ashberry Homes to form a major part of the 1,000-home Marham Park estate.

The Bellway and Ashberry developments will provide 251 homes for private sale and 79 affordable homes for rent or shared ownership.

The homes at Bronze Fields are being delivered by Bellway’s eastern counties division, while Saxon Heath is being built and marketed by the housebuilder’s Essex division under the Ashberry Homes brand.

Bellway releases the first Bronze Fields homes for sale on Friday, while Saxon Heath will launch later this year.

The Marham Park site includes 65 acres of parkland, sports pitches, allotments and play areas, as well as a local centre and village square.

A new link road, called Marham Parkway, opened in 2018 to serve the new developments and connect Tut Hill to Mildenhall Road.

Jenny Walker, sales director for Bellway Essex, said: “Saxon Heath will make a significant contribution to the delivery of new homes at Marham Park and to the continued development of this emerging neighbourhood.

“The large areas of open space being provided at the site and the close proximity of Howard Primary School make this a particularly attractive location for families.”
