Phase 1 is progressing well with now 6 homes in the proud possession of their owners with more to move in over the coming weeks. The show homes are busy with lots of interest for the very few remaining homes in Phase 1 and for the next homes coming up in our next Phase 2.
As the weather turns colder, people are really welcoming the energy saving features and insulation that are built into all our homes, making them warm and economically and environmentally friendly.
Phase 2 now has approval and will be underway in the New Year.
It's been an exciting year, but we are very much looking forward to welcoming a special visitor to site for the first time this year - Father Christmas.
Early as it seems we would like to wish you all a very Healthy and Happy Christmas, from all the Staff at Oak-NGate (Stoke) Limited.
The summer has been a busy one. We have 2 completed show homes and many other homes are complete or nearing completion with sales and reservations going very well.
We have completed the road network in Phase 1 and will soon be turning our attention to the next Phase - Phase 2. This contains a large area of public open space which links the park land which starts at the New Inn Lane entrance, through grassland and more trees down to Longton Brook.
Our newly opened show homes are proving very popular and very busy.
The design, craftsmanship and attention to detail are giving a real "wow" for visitors.
We are delighted that the details of Phase 2 have now been approved. This phase brings a further 46 homes into our construction programme out of our total of 500. Importantly, it also approves the continuation of the parkland from Phase 1 which runs adjacent to New Inn Lane. This large area of public open space is an important feature and contains grassland and trees linking it to Longton Brook.
We are OPEN!! Our first two show homes, are now open.
We had a very successful launch event on 24th June when our shareholders cut the ribbon opening our show homes for prospective home owners to come and have a look at the amazing interiors and exteriors of two of our house types - The Ash and The Birch
If you would like to view, please get in touch with our sales office and come on down.
Excitingly, as homes sell on Phase 1 we have had planning permission granted for Phase two - part of our over all development in 10 Phases. This is shown on the amazing site model in the Choices Centre, which shows the development in its green setting.
With the hugely anticipated show home opening, creeping over the horizon, we are thrilled with the way that Trentham Fields is shaping up! The homes on this stunning development are being finished to exceptional standards with every detail considered from design through to finish.
Homes will be ready to move into very soon, and with reservations securing over half of the plots on Phase 1, if you want to make Trentham Fields your home, you will need to get in touch with the Sales Office quickly! We are so happy to be a part of this fantastic development and can’t wait to help, welcome you to the show homes very shortly!
Spring has been a very busy time on site and a large part of Phase 1 is well underway. One exciting part of seeing the houses in construction is seeing the attention to detail and the environmental features being constructed. All the homes benefit from high quality insulation (good for the environment and good for home owners pockets) and photovoltaic panels and air source heat pumps to generate energy in a clean and green way.
Our two Phase 1 show homes are due for opening in the summer and we can't wait to welcome you to site to see inside.
We are also very excited that our first home owners will be moving in this summer too!!
Phase 1 of the development is well underway and the two Show Homes are now being tiled, kitchens being fitted and all the other internal works that are turning these amazing houses into high quality homes. Our team of craftsmen have a keen attention to detail.
We will be announcing soon when the two Show Homes will be open, so watch this space for a summer opening.
New roads are being created to serve Phase 1 and we are looking forward to starting the landscaping. Phase 2 will follow on to the north east of the current works, once finalised.
Last month has seen huge progress on the two show homes at the gateway to Phase 1 nearest to New Inn Lane. These homes are externally virtually completed and work is underway to fit them out internally to our very high specification.
Careful work in the planning and design phase has ensured that all homes benefit from the very best orientation to maximise sun light both internally and in the generous garden plots.
Our two Phase 1 show homes are really taking shape and they are now weather tight and being fitted out inside. Built from the highest quality materials, they will also showcase the many energy efficiency and eco measure that we have built into them.
The next homes for sale are also starting to go up as part of Phase 1 which is 29 homes. The whole site which has planning permission comprises 500 homes.
The next Phase has gone to Stoke Council for the detailed approval and will comprise 46 homes.
Work on drainage and roads continues well, despite some cold and wet weather.
We are very excited to have the frame and structures of our two show homes up. We will be busy this month fitting them out and making them ready for the Spring and our opening of the show homes.
Much work has taken place with the roads and sewers for the rest of the first phase and more homes will follow on from the first two show homes.
We are busy working on the next Phase design and details too.
We look forward to welcoming you to view our show homes soon.
In the meantime, the Oak-NGate (Stoke) Limited team would like to wish you all a
Very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
What a month it has been. We are delighted that after lots of preparation and refinements we are building the first phase of homes at Trentham Fields.
The roads are being laid out along with the services to Phase 1.
Our first homes to be completed will be two show homes near the entrance.
Our Sales Office has been very busy and we are delighted with the amazing interest we have had.
As Phase 1 starts to take shape on the ground we are busy designing and refining the plan for Phase 2 and following discussions and input from the Council we are hoping to submit this for Planning approval very shortly. Like the first phase it will be a low density with high quality homes and will continue seemlessly from Phase 1. The swathe of parkland fronting Phase 1 will continue towards Longton Brook and the development will follow the lines of the existing hedgerows which will be retained to maximse the greenery of the site and provide habitats for the ecology. All the protected trees in this area will be retained and these will be a positive feature of the next Phase. Watch this space.
From all the staff at Oak-NGate (Stoke) Limited and our contractors, we would like to wish you a very happy, safe and healthy Christmas and we very much look forward to welcoming you to view our first show homes in the New Year.
The new Sales Office continues to be busy with enquiries and is part of a new improved entrance to the site.
We have trimmed back the grass and vegetation on the southern part of the site ready for the winter and the construction of the roads and sewers to serve the development.
Reillys are now constructing the roads for phase 1 and the layout is starting to take shape. This will continue across the first phase which has detailed approval and we are hoping to have the first show homes built by the New Year.
We look forward to welcoming you when the open.
The sales office at the entrance to Trentham Fields is open and receiving lots of visitors and enquiries.
We closed on the Monday of the Queen's Funeral as a mark of respect and to allow staff to pay their respects.
This month we will be trimming back the grass and vegetation to the southern part of the site under the careful direction of our ecologist to allow for the roads and drainage to be put in place once all the approvals are finalised and for ground investigations to take place in other parts of the site. This work will take place throughout October and into early November.
Last month saw the successful opening of the sales office on site and we have taken lots of enquiries.
Road & Sewer designs are progressing through the checking process and we anticipate a start on site within weeks.
We are all concerned about the energy crisis that is predicting household bills to rise significantly yet again in the autumn and again in the New Year, following significant rises already hitting our bills.
At Trentham Fields we have invested in Air Source Heat Pumps and Photovoltaic Panels for all our homes and there will be no gas on site. Coupled with high quality insulation and energy efficient design, we believe that our homes will be extremely fuel and energy efficient as all our homes will achieve and energy A rating.
That has never mattered more than at the present
We've been busy with lots of enquiries and interest in the homes that we are building.
Thank you for all the enquiries.
On site we are preparing for the construction of the roads and sewers to Phase 1 and hope to be under construction with these shortly.
The country was on alert last month with the UK's first ever heatwave warning, which was red in our area. Climate change and our impacts on the global environment are high priority. Here at Oak-NGate (Stoke) Limited we are committed to doing what we can to be as environmentally conscious as possible. All our homes will have air source heat pumps, and all will have electric charging points for vehicles. This will help to make a huge impact to our carbon footprint as well as saving money on energy. We are committed to building homes for an environmentally sustainable future.
Landscaping works around the newly improved junction of New Inn Lane and the Rugby Club Road have now been completed. These complement the new wider, safer bell mouth of the junction which has been completed in advance of major construction to ensure safety and ease of access to residents and deliveries.
We are currently tendering for contractors to undertake the construction of the roads and sewers for Phase 1 and we hope to start this during the summer.
We will also be opening the sales office to explain the masterplan and early phases and the additional local facilities that will be built or invested in as part of the development.
This month sees the start of the landscaping of the entrance corner to the site at the junction of New Inn Lane and the Rugby Club Road.
We are also tendering for the construction of the Phase 1 roads and sewers and hope to be able to start this work over the summer.
The sales information centre will open in July to help existing and new residence understand what Trentham Fields has to offer to improve amenities in the area.
Now that spring is here, we will be starting the landscaping to the open space at the entrance of the development.
The designs for the phase one roads and sewers are now complete, and they will be processing through the approval and tendering stages, with an anticipated start on site within the next few of months.
