360 new homes to be built as local developer acquires Barnsley site

A national housebuilder is set to deliver hundreds of homes with the acquisition of a new site in Barnsley.

Keepmoat Homes has completed the purchase of a site on School Street in Thurnscoe which will be used to create 360 new homes.

Developed in partnership with Homes England and Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, the residential scheme will feature a range of two, three and four bedroom homes with off-street parking and private gardens.

The £52m development represents the third phase of housing on the wider site, and aims to create jobs and training opportunities for local people.

Dan Crew, regional managing director at Keepmoat Homes, commented: “We’re delighted to be continuing to work in partnership with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council and Homes England to deliver our third phase in Thurnscoe.

“As a local developer, with our Head Office in Yorkshire, this acquisition is a positive step for our ambitious growth plans in South Yorkshire and following the success of previous developments in the area, it’s a fantastic opportunity to strengthen our presence in the town and cement our relationship with the Council.

“The new homes are designed for both first time buyers and those looking to up-size, as well as providing much needed provision of more affordable homes. We are driven to make a big impact to the local area and aim to create a new community with open spaces and park facilities for everyone to enjoy.”
