Construction is under way on 270 homes in Sherburn-in-Elmet as part of Yorkshire Housing’s biggest ever development.

Planning approval was granted late last year, allowing construction to commence on site.

The scheme includes properties ranging from one to five bedrooms on a 25-acre site to be called Hodgson’s Gate.

Yorkshire Housing worked with Sheffield architects MHA and contractor Countryside Properties on the flagship scheme – which is situated to the east of Hodgson’s Lane in the North Yorkshire town.

The development, which has a combined value of £55m, is set to be finished by April 2022.

It will contain on completion 95 properties for sale, 23 for private rent, 58 for affordable rent, 32 for rent to buy and 62 for shared ownership.

Andy Gamble, director of development at Yorkshire Housing, said: “We’re delighted that our hard work will provide an opportunity for hundreds of people to move into high quality new homes.


“Our progress means we can deliver more much needed homes to the region as we continue working towards our strategic priority of delivering 3,120 homes by 2021 and a further 3,000 new homes by 2025-26.”

It is another milestone for Yorkshire Housing, an organisation that recently delivered its 1,000th new home towards a target of 3,120 properties and was announced as a strategic partner with Homes England.

Chris Penn, operations director at Countryside Properties PLC (Yorkshire), said: “Countryside Properties (Yorkshire) is delighted to be working in partnership with Yorkshire Housing, Homes England, Selby District Council and partner organisations to deliver an exemplar development of 270 new homes, ranging from one to five bedrooms during the next three years, providing housing for sale and mixed tenure affordable housing.


“Countryside Properties is proud to be able to assist Yorkshire Housing in achieving its target of 3,120 new homes by 2021 with the delivery of this flagship development.”

Sherburn-in-Elmet is a popular area between Leeds and York. The Hodgson’s Gate development is north-east of the centre with access from the Sherburn Bypass.
