City of York Council has announced the appointment of a national housebuilder to develop 140 new homes in the area.
Wates Group has been contracted to deliver 140 homes at the Lowfield Green development in the city.
The landscaped site comprise over an acre of open public space, starter and family homes, wheelchair-accessible bungalows and apartments for over-55s.
Construction on the homes, 40 per cent of which will be classed as affordable housing, is scheduled to begin next month.
David Wingfield, business unit director of Wates Construction North East and Yorkshire, commented: “Our growing portfolio in York is a testament to our reputation as a trusted and expert contractor across a diverse range of sectors and to our close network of supply chain partners in the city and the wider North Yorkshire.
“Our team has worked closely with City of York Council to scope the Lowfield Green construction programme and ensure that this important new development is delivered efficiently and to an uncompromised standard for the people of York.”
Cllr Denise Craghill, executive member for housing and safer neighbourhoods for City of York Council, added: “We are committed to building high-quality homes at Lowfield Green and are delighted that we have secured Wates to build them.
“Their reputation for well-built homes matches our ambition as does their commitment to sustainable construction.”
