Keepmoat Homes cements commitment to Bradford with plans for new homes and jobs
24 October 2017
Housebuilder, Keepmoat Homes has been given the go-ahead by the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council to deliver 145 new homes situated between Bradford and Shipley, with outline planning granted for a further 1,000 homes, as part of the city’s £150m urban village.
The ‘New Bolton Woods’ regeneration programme proposed by Keepmoat and Canal Road Urban Village Ltd (CRUVL), which consists of Urbo Regeneration Limited, City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council and Arnold Laver Ltd, will deliver much needed housing to the area of north Bradford, as well as associated new businesses, retail, leisure and community facilities.
Keepmoat is due to start on site early 2018 to begin what will be the next phase of the regeneration vision for New Bolton Woods Village. A selection of two, three and four bedroom houses will be available, with prices starting from £123,000, or from only £98,400 when purchased with the Government’s Help to Buy initiative.
It is not only Bradford’s housing market that is set to benefit, the regeneration programme alone is expected to produce more than 50 new jobs and two apprenticeship opportunities. Awareness and interest in the construction industry will also be raised through engagement with local schools and colleges, via planned work experience placements and site visits.
Ian Hoad, Managing Director of Keepmoat, said:
“New Bolton Woods is an exciting, and high priority regeneration project, and is set to genuinely bring a new lease of life to an area that has previously been overlooked. Our work will also forge the way for further regeneration in the area. We look forward to continuing to work with CRUVL to ensure the development creates a vibrant new community, which will hopefully leave a positive and long-lasting legacy.”
Peter Swallow a Director of CRUVL, said:
"We are delighted to be working with major house-builder Keepmoat on the next phase of housing at New Bolton Woods. The hard work carried out by the Keepmoat team working closely with CRUVL has resulted in detailed planning consent being granted for the latest phase of housing. CRUVL looks forward to working with Keepmoat to deliver these much needed new homes, to address the acknowledged shortage of suitable housing in the Bolton Woods and wider Bradford area. CRUVL has already completed and sold 50 new houses and hopes to start work on the new local centre food store next year.”
