Kent County Cricket Club has confirmed that Bellway will be its housing partner for the upcoming redevelopment project at its historic Canterbury ground.
Bellway were named major housebuilder of the year in 2009 and will design and build the new homes at the St Lawrence Ground, Canterbury. The redevelopment also includes a hotel, conference facilities, a health and fitness centre, hospitality boxes, stand refurbishment, floodlights and retail units.
"We are pleased to have concluded an agreement with our housing partner for the housing element of the redevelopment project. Bellway is a high quality developer and has a first-class record of delivering outstanding developments," said Kent's acting chief executive officer Jamie Clifford.
"We are looking forward to working closely with them as we create a ground of which we can all be proud."
Jason Green, managing director, Bellway South East, added: "The partnership will allow us to continue to develop a range of high quality homes for people in the Canterbury area. The St Lawrence Ground is an iconic venue and presents a wonderful development opportunity."
The club will be submitting a planning application to Canterbury City Council that seeks to amend the scheme for the Bat and Ball site shortly.
This will see a reduction in the number of housing units within the development and a reconfiguration from flats to houses.
