Diggers move in; Property News.

WORK has begun on housing that will help take forward one of Europe's most ambitious masterplans for a sustainable mixed-use community.

Diggers are onsite creating an access road for the new Taylor Wimpey Millfields site at the McMullen Road entrance to Lingfield Point where a range of homes will start to appear over the next few months.

More than 2,400 already work at Lingfield Point's business park.

But the aim is to create a true live/work low carbon development.

The masterplan was drawn up by renowned architects FAT and the all-encompassing community envisaged by Lingfield Point will eventually include a school, parkland and sports pitches as well as a health centre, shops and restaurants.

John Orchard, director of Marchday, which owns Lingfield Point, said: "When we began developing Lingfield Point we had an ambitious vision of turning the site into one of the most sustainable mixed use communities in Europe -where people could live and work with great facilities in great surroundings.

"We're happy and proud to say that our vision is rapidly becoming a reality, and that reality is that we offer more - Lingfield Point is more than just a workplace or a place to live, it is a way of life."

Millfields will include two, three and four-bedroom houses in seven different styles and a range of special terms are on offer to help buyers move.
