The scheme is a consortium project by CALA Homes and David Wilson Homes.
The development will provide a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, terraced homes, colonies and detached family homes.
Some 25% of the units will be of affordable tenure, with these properties part of the initial phase of the development.

A spokesperson on behalf of the consortium said: “We must thank the local community first and foremost for engaging with us throughout, helping us to shape the final proposals, which have evolved over the past two years.
“We feel the improvements made through planning gain contributions will benefit the wider community and those commuting in or out [of] the city.”
The site features publicly accessible green space — over a third of the entire development — which includes linear parks, a seven-hectare park and more than 700 new specimen trees.
The spokesperson added: “At the heart of the design solution has been the delivery of an outstanding landscape environment along with significant investment to improve public transport, education and healthcare and the delivery of an excellent pedestrian and cycle network.”
