Work starts on £5.5m energy efficient residential development in Wakefield

Work has begun on a £5.5 Wakefield development set to create dozens of new energy efficient homes.

Two former independent living sites will be replaced with homes that will be made available for affordable rent and shared ownership, created by ESH Construction on behalf of WDH.

Demolition of buildings at the Greenhill Road site, which had been vacant since 2018, began in November, while approval for the transformation of Colin Barnaby Court has now been granted and will see the creation of 24 homes.

Sue Young, WDH’s Executive Director of Investment, said: “Development and providing high quality homes is a key part of our business.

“We are delighted to be providing more new homes for our customers across the district, both for rent and for sale with shared ownership.

“These schemes will provide more energy efficient accommodation than previously situated on the sites and will enhance the Wakefield area, attracting more families and professionals, offering a range of modern living options for prospective customers and tenants close to the city centre and its excellent transport links.”

WDH has worked alongside Homes England to bring the scheme to fruition with combined funding of £1.2m being granted.
