West Yorkshire development sold to create 250 homes
Land regeneration firm Harworth Group has announced the sale of the second phase of its Flass Lane development in Castleford to property developer Strata Homes.
Strata plan to build 250 new homes on the 19.7 acre site at Glasshoughton, close to the Junction 32 outlet shopping village off the M62.
The deal follows the area’s first phase development of 157 homes by developer Keepmoat, leaving Harworth Group with approximately 10 acres, which it intends to bring to the market over the next eighteen months for further residential development.
Construction has begun on the Glasshoughton Southern Link Road which will provide new access to the site and reduce congestion around the retail area, while also providing a segregated cycle route.
Nigel Robson, pre-development Director at Strata Homes, commented: “Strata are delighted to be involved in the development of this site which will bring many much needed family homes to Glasshoughton.
“Works will commence on site imminently and we hope that there are more opportunities for Strata to partner with Harworth in the future to deliver new housing on other key development sites where there is an identified need.”
