A major project in Linthwaite, Huddersfield, to build 125 high quality, eco-friendly affordable homes has been given the go-ahead by planners.
Casey have been granted permission to build on the site at the former Broad Oak Farm. The £22 million project is being supported with Homes England Funding.
Alan Taylor, Director at Casey, said: “We have enjoyed working in collaboration with Yorkshire Housing to develop this scheme and are excited to begin work on site. We will be providing a high-quality scheme for residents, as well as improving lives in creating new communities.”
Designed by TADW Architects, the development will include two, three and four bedroom homes, as well as ten two-bedroom flats. They will be available for a mix of tenures including shared ownership, right to buy and affordable rent.
Director of development at Yorkshire Housing, Sian Grindley, said: “At Yorkshire Housing we’re passionate about building homes and communities that our customers are proud to live in and call home.
“Linthwaite is a great place to live and I’m proud that we’re able to deliver one of the few 100% affordable housing developments in the area. A lot of thought has gone into the design of the site to ensure we create a community as well as high quality homes.
“We’re well on track to hit our target of delivering 8,000 additional affordable homes by 2030 and we’re delighted that this development will give people an opportunity to move into a high quality new home.”
Work is expected to start on the site later this year and is expected to be complete in 2025.
