PLANS have been submitted to Doncaster Council to create a flagship new £22.6 million housing development which will bring more than 330 homes to the region.

If approved, the first phase of the proposed development will see the construction of 334 homes, and work is expected to start on site in March.

The Homes and Communities Agency has appointed housing and regeneration specialist Keepmoat as its preferred developer in the first phase, which will see the development of 172 homes at Carr Lodge in Doncaster.

A further 132 larger homes and 30 self-build housing plots will also be delivered with support from Strata Homes.

The scheme will see a new single carriageway spine road developed to link the roundabouts at either end of Woodfield Way, adjacent to the Tesco supermarket in the south and Holiday Inn in the north in Balby, Doncaster.

Across the wider development, a new main street and village square incorporating shops and a community hall will be developed as well as incorporating other community facilities, a children’s nursery, a primary school, youth club, sports pitches, play areas and a park.

When complete, Carr Lodge will include a network of high-quality green routes, designed to encourage walking and cycling and provide connections to local facilities.

Mark Knight, new build managing director for Keepmoat Yorkshire, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed as the preferred developer for the first phase at Carr Lodge and we look forward to working in partnership with the HCA, Strata and a social housing provider to deliver affordable new homes.”

The development is expected to take three years to complete.
