Hundreds of private sale homes for Sheffield
Locals are being consulted on plans to build over 500 homes across Sheffield - at least 450 of which will be for private sale.
The Sheffield Housing Company - a joint venture between Great Places, Sheffield City Council and Keepmoat - is to unveil its proposals at a series of consultation events next month.
The plans involve the building of around 67 homes at Earl Marshal Drive, Fir Vale; 185 at Ravencarr Place, Manor; 111 on three sites at Park Grange Drive and Park Grange Road, Norfolk Park; 126 more at two sites at Buchanan Road, Parson Cross and 48 at Crumpsall Drive, Shirecliffe.
There is currently a 15-year plan to build 2,300 new homes across seven of Sheffield's neighbourhoods - a mixture of two, three and four-bed properties.
Project director Tom Fenton said: “Following the success and popularity of phase one, we are very excited to begin the next chapter. The regeneration of Sheffield neighbourhoods is about much more than bricks and mortar and this is why we are so keen to share the plans with local people and residents, so that they can play a part in the area’s transformation.
“Nobody knows the local area better than the existing residents so we are keen to canvass their views on the emerging designs and test whether the linkages and connections we’re assuming are important are in fact the right things to be concentrating on”.
“The comments people make will be used to inform the design process and prepare more detailed plans for redevelopment. If all goes well, building could begin by spring next year, with the majority of sites under construction before the end of 2015.”
