Harworth Estates Secures Another Residential Planning Consent

Harworth Estates has received planning consent this month for a total of 58 residential units at Malvins Road, Blyth, Northumberland in partnership with Gleeson Homes.

The development will be promoted as Malvins Walk – a new development of two, three and four bedroom homes in a well-established residential location.
This follows Harworth securing two other recent consents in other parts of the UK, with consent given for 53 plots at Monkhill Lane, Pontefract (with Harron Homes) and 20 plots at New Street, Measham, Leicestershire (with Cameron Homes).

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 more than 8,500 housing plots and more than 8 million sq ft of employment space across the North of England and the Midlands.

Ed Alder, Regional Director for Gleeson Homes said, “We specialise in building low-cost homes on brownfield sites across the north of England. We have previously worked closely with Harworth Estates to secure planning consent on development land in Yorkshire.

“Our homes are priced to suit local people and we look forward to offering them to the Blyth community when we start construction early next year.”

Tim Love, Director of Harworth Estates’ Strategic Land division, said: “We’ve enjoyed a huge amount of success working closely with housebuilders, such as Gleeson, 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.”
