Harworth Estates Secures Two Further Residential Planning Consents

Harworth Estates has received planning consent this month for a total of 73 residential units in Leicestershire and West Yorkshire in partnership with two high-quality housebuilders.

At Measham, Leicestershire, North West Leicestershire District Council has granted consent for 20 units on a 1.2-acre site in New Street, with the homes being built by Midlands-based housebuilder Cameron Homes. The scheme incorporates 2, 3 and 4 bed homes arranged as apartments, semi-detached and detached homes and has been carefully designed to blend in with surrounding homes and to reflect its prominent position on the entrance into Measham.

At Pontefract, West Yorkshire, Wakefield Council has given consent for 53 units on a 4-acre site in Monkhill Lane. The homes will be built by Harron Homes. The collection of superior quality 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, will be built by Yorkshire’s premier housebuilder, Harron Homes, and will be known as Hawthorne Grange.

Katie Charlesworth, Sales and Marketing Manager for Harron Homes, said: “We’re tremendously excited about Hawthorne Grange, which will feature homes boasting Harron’s trademark high-end specification. Sleek, contemporary kitchens and stylish bathrooms, with spacious layouts, thoughtfully designed for modern day living”.

The planning consents were achieved by the housebuilders working in close partnership with Harworth’s Strategic Land division, which is headed by Tim Love. Over the last six years Harworth has obtained consents for over 8,500 housing plots and over 4m sq. ft of employment space across the North of England and the Midlands.

Tim Love, Director of Harworth Estates’ Strategic Land division, said: “We’ve enjoyed a huge amount of success working closely with housebuilders and local authorities to achieve planning consents that provide regeneration benefits for local communities.

“Housing is in short supply in the UK. By helping to bring forward land for high-quality new homes, we’re continuing to support efforts to rebalance the UK economy whilst providing great places for people to live.”
