400 homes on the horizon as former colliery acquired by Yorkshire housebuilder

A Yorkshire housebuilder has announced that it has completed the purchase of a former colliery site in Costhorpe.

Keepmoat Homes has purchased the former Firbeck Colliery site from developer and regeneration specialist Network Space as part of its plans to develop 400 new homes in the area.

The development, known as Osprey View, was granted planning permission by Bassetlaw District Council at the end of last year.

Dan Crew, regional managing director at Keepmoat Homes, commented: ’’We are very excited to progress with our plans and breathe new life into the disused site.

“The new energy-efficient homes are designed to support the demand in the local area including first-time buyers who are eager to get their foot onto the property ladder, as well as those looking to up-size.

“We are committed to transforming the site into a brand new and inclusive community which will have access to the beautiful country park and lake, and we envisage the development to be popular with both families and walkers alike.

“We have a strong track record of delivering new homes across the country, particularly on brownfield land such as this and this acquisition is a fantastic opportunity to strengthen our presence in the area.”
