Plans approved for 41 home development in "great residential area" in Yorkshire

Plans to create a new homes development on a parcel of open land in Yorkshire have been approved.

Urban Developments, a part of York-based Urban Group, has received approval from Bradford Council for the new project, which will create 41 affordable homes in the Long Lee area.

The scheme will be developed in partnership with Bradford based social housing provider, Accent, and has been designed by Brewster Bye Architects.

The site currently consists of open land and several run-down residential and farm buildings and construction work is set to begin this summer.

Nick Gould, managing director of Urban Developments (York), commented: “Securing the go-ahead for this development is a great achievement for everyone involved and we’re looking forward to starting work on site.

“Long Lee benefits from good local amenities and public transport links, close to the acclaimed St. Ives Estate and surrounded by countryside, but it’s still just a short drive to both Keighley and Bingley town centres.

“As a result, it’s a great residential area and we’re confident this development of high-quality new homes, that will appeal to a wide mix of residents and families, will become a very popular place to live.”

Mark Henderson, from Brewster Bye Architects, said: “This development will provide local jobs and training opportunities as well as utilising Homes England funding to help deliver the government’s agenda for new homes.

“We’ve designed the whole scheme around the natural slope of the land, which will create a development that sits comfortably within the existing context of both the site and its surrounding urban environment.

“The northern part of the development, consisting of 32 homes, has a traditional residential layout and the southern section of the development will be a smaller, mews style, development.

“The two distinct areas will be separated by a substantial public open space and additional landscaped areas will be a key feature throughout the scheme.

“These will ensure the development isn’t over dominated by cars and parking, which will significantly enhance its visual appeal and make it a really attractive place to live.”
