Plans for former Wakefield railway site transformation underway

Plans to build 140 new homes on a brownfield site on Station Road, Normanton, have been submitted.

The plans were approved by Brewster Bye Architects on behalf of Strategic Team Group.

The former railway sidings were decommissioned in the last century and the land has stood vacant for many years. It was granted outline planning approval for 142 houses in 2013.

Strategic Team Group is working in partnership with Sigma Capital and WDH, to improve and enhance the choice of residential accommodation within the Wakefield district.

Lindsay Rich, head of development at Strategic Team Group, said: “The site benefits from being in a very sustainable location given the excellent transport links due to its proximity to both the railway station and M62 motorway, and is walkable to Normanton centre which provides a good selection of retail and commercial offerings.

“There are also a number of local schools and health facilities, which will appeal to young families looking to buy or rent.”

The scheme incorporates an area of well overlooked public open space, which will provide an attractive entrance to the development and benefit all residents as well as the wider community.

Mark Henderson, from Brewster Bye, added: “The development as a whole is designed as a series of picturesque vistas, and it will provide a range of high quality, well‐proportioned houses with light and modern interiors.

“With tall windows giving ample natural daylight, the homes will be of traditional construction, using subtle hued red bricks on the main street elevations, with differing shades of grey concrete roof tile to differentiate between the house types.”
