Following the grant of planning permission, an earthworks strategy was implemented to create development plateaus and begin the process for providing infrastructure to facilitate the sale of serviced development land parcels.
The provision of a new site access and bespoke entrance feature was also delivered, in addition to bringing utilities to the site and forming a site-wide sustainable urban drainage system pond.
In 2017, the first land parcel was sold to Keepmoat Homes to build 157 three- and four-bedroom homes, which are now close to completion. In early 2019, the second land parcel was sold to Strata Homes to build 250 three- and four-bedroom homes over the next few years.
The sale to Strata (and future land sales) was made possible through the start of construction of the planned £6m Glasshoughton Southern Link Road, providing a new access to the site and reducing congestion in the local area. This new road, funded through the West Yorkshire-plus Transport Fund, will extend from Whistler Drive and link with Flass Lane and the M62.
Opportunities & Enquiries
Due to strong levels of demand from house builders for land at Micklefields, we intend to accelerate the delivery of the commercial land parcels by preparing the plots for sale and taking the opportunities to the market sooner than originally anticipated, with the process expected to begin in summer 2018.
