Persimmon plans 74 new homes in Knaresborough
19 March 2021
Persimmon Homes has successfully finalised a land deal which bring almost £500,000 of community investment and 74 new homes to Knaresborough.
The 6.25-acre site, off Halfpenny Lane, will include 30 affordable properties, areas of green space and a selection of two, three and four-bedroom homes.
Financial contributions will include £238,000 toward improvements at Meadowside Community Primary School and £65,000 to support strategic highways improvements. A further £134,000 will go towards improvements at Stockwell Allotments, St John the Baptist Churchyard, Jacob Smith Park and King George V Field recreation ground and skate park.
Scott Waters, managing director for Persimmon Yorkshire, said: “We are pleased to be able to progress our Orchard Gardens development. The site has been carefully designed to meet the needs of the local market.”
“Located to the north east of the picturesque market town, the development is well placed for access to Harrogate, Leeds and York, so we expect there to be plenty of interest when we are able to release properties for sale.”
Work has begun on the site’s infrastructure and the Persimmon Homes team is working towards releasing its first homes in autumn this year.
“As part of our ongoing strategic development across Yorkshire, we are continually looking to expand our construction workforce and explore new land opportunities,” added Scott.
