The peregrine falcons of the Cheddar Gorge have inspired the name of a new 60-home development to be built in the Somerset village of Cheddar.
Work is about to start on Peregrine View – named after the birds of prey which nest on the steep cliffs of the valley – a new scheme by Bellway South West on a 5.6-acre site off Hellier’s Lane.
The development will include two, three and four-bedroom houses for private sale and 18 one, two and three-bedroom affordable homes available for local people through rent or shared ownership.
Bellway is also building two ‘bat bungalows’ in the landscaped area to the west of the development to provide replacement bat roosts.
Bellway plans to release the first homes for sale at Peregrine View in the summer, with a showhome unveiled later in the year.
