The development works for a £9.2m housing project were started by the main contractor Esh Construction on a Brownfield site in Castleford. The contractor is working for Leeds Federated Housing Association (LFHA) and Wakefield & District Housing (WDH) to build 82 homes.
This project at Pemberton Road in Castleford will be available for affordable rent, rent to buy and shared ownership. The first new homes will be available in summer 2022, while LFHA bought the 2.2-hectare site from Wakefield Council in 2020.
The project is designed by Leeds-based Brewster Bye Architects and supported by Homes England funding. Pemberton Road will be a mixed-tenure development with different sized family homes and four bungalows.
The land is being jointly developed by LFHA and WDH, with each provider managing 43 units and 39 units respectively.
