Since the opening of the Great Yorkshire Way in 2016, construction of new homes at Pheasant Hill Park has accelerated with Taylor Wimpey and Harron Homes building out over 165 homes in the first phase of land sales. In 2019, Taylor Wimpey and Barratt Homes purchased two parcels of land to build 172 and 184 three- and four-bedroom homes, respectively, over the next two years.
Land has also been sold to Lidl to build a convenience store on site, which will diversify the scheme and enhance the attractiveness of the site as a place to live. The store opened to the public towards the end of 2018.
Before Harworth Group began development of the site, the village of Rossington suffered from poor vehicle access. We therefore worked closely with Doncaster Council, Peel (the owner of Robin Hood Airport) and Verdion (the developer of iPort) to develop and promote the Great Yorkshire Way (previously known as FARRRS), which directly links Junction 3 of the M18 to Robin Hood Airport. This road was critical to opening up employment and housing land to create new jobs and to meet the demand for new homes.
