A developer is to build 30 new homes in Eggborough after purchasing a parcel of land in the village.
Jones Homes is to deliver a mix of three, four and five-bedroom houses on a 3.47-acre site off Weeland Road.
Planning permission to develop the land is already in place, having been granted by Selby District Council in March.
The development is to be known as Teasel Green, and the first homes are expected to go on sale this autumn.
David Ruffley, Regional Director for Jones Homes Yorkshire, said: “Now that we have acquired this site with planning consent already secured, we are expecting to start construction work at Teasel Green this summer. The development will deliver much-needed housing for the area with a mix of three, four and five-bedroom homes to meet the requirements of a range of purchasers – from first-time buyers to growing families and downsizers.
“The materials we are planning to use in the construction of new homes at the development have been selected to complement the existing buildings in the village. The provision of a public open space and the retention of existing hedgerows will ensure the site blends in with its rural surroundings.”
As part of the planning agreement, Jones Homes Yorkshire is to provide and manage the public open space on the development. Three of the 30 homes will be allocated as discounted properties, available at below open-market value to local people who meet certain criteria.
