New housing in Slaithwaite planned following purchase of land
Huddersfield-based house builders SB Homes is set to submit a planning application for 44 family homes following the purchase of 5.72 acres of land.
The land situated on Lingards Road in Slaithwaite has been for sale for several months, with outline planning already granted on the site under the Kirklees Local Plan.
Following an assessment of the location, 44 units are now being proposed including ten apartments being offered for affordable housing.
Stephen Byram, managing director of SB Homes said: “We are delighted to announce that we have purchased the site at Lingards Road and are hoping to create a scheme of detached and semi-detached homes that are ideal for families who want to live within walking distance of the thriving Slaithwaite village.
“Contracts have only just been completed so plans are still being finalised but we will also be working with a housing partner to provide ten apartments to rent, which will provide an injection of much-needed affordable homes to rent in the area.”
SB Homes is nearing completion on a site just one mile away from Lingards Road, a 70-home development, Empire Works, in the Slaithwaite village centre.
Stephen added: “The success of Empire Works blends different sized homes in a well-planned scheme and shows us that there is a demand for this kind of housing. Slaithwaite is a flourishing village and we are proud to be a part of its future.”
