Wakefield development site for 300 homes hits market
25 May 2016
Acting on behalf of Wakefield Council, CBRE’s Leeds Residential Investment & Development team has launched a prime 20 acre site to market in Wakefield, West Yorkshire which can accommodate some 300 new homes.
The undeveloped greenfield land is accessed off Milton Road in Snapethorpe, around 1.5 miles from both the centre of Wakefield and the M1 motorway. Due to its suburban location, the majority of the 20 acre site has been allocated for housing within the Local Development Framework and has the potential for 300 homes or alternative uses.
The site is bordered by residential housing and agricultural land and benefits from being in close proximity to local schools, colleges and amenities.
CBRE is now accepting offers either on an unconditional basis or subject to planning.
Mike Gorman, Director at CBRE Leeds, commented:
"This extensive site occupies a strategic position close to local amenities and schools and has the potential to deliver much-needed new residential accommodation to this area of Wakefield. The unlocking of this site for future development represents an excellent opportunity for developers seeking to undertake a large-scale scheme to make a positive contribution to the local community.”
