The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) has submitted plans to Doncaster Borough Council in the UK for a new £22.6m housing development in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

Phase one of the development will feature 334 homes, of which 172 homes will be located at Carr Lodge in Doncaster.

The remaining 132 larger homes and 30 self-build housing plots will be delivered with support from Strata Homes.

Carr Lodge will feature 1,500 mixed tenure homes to be designed to the Government’s Code for Sustainable Homes level 3.

HCA has appointed Keepmoat, the UK-based housing and regeneration specialist, as its preferred developer for the first phase of the development.

Keepmoat Yorkshire new build managing director Mark Knight said, "The homes that will be developed in the first phase will be of mixed tenure, offering a variety of choice to the highest quality design ensuring that the needs of local families are met."

The entire development will feature a new single carriageway spine road developed to connect the roundabouts at either end of Woodfield Way, near the Tesco supermarket at the southern end and the Holiday Inn at the northern end in Balby, Doncaster.

Plans also include approximately 1,500 homes, a new main street and village square featuring shops and a community hall, as well as other community facilities including a children’s nursery, a primary school, youth club, sports pitches, play areas and a linear park.

HCA area manager Alan Beveridge said the planning application builds upon the agency’s investment of £5m to provide a road that will allow Keepmoat and their partners to commence delivery of local homes.

"The mix of house types, including some Custombuild plots, will ensure that local people will be able to move into the home they want at a price they can afford," Beveridge said.

Construction of the first phase is expected to start on site in March 2013 after securing approval from the council and the development is anticipated to be complete in three years.
