Jones Homes is to build 144 new homes in Thorpe Hesley, four miles from Rotherham, after acquiring 5.8ha of land.
At the site, Jones Homes will build three-, four- and five-bedroom homes, while 14 properties will be designated as starter homes to help local first-time buyers who meet qualifying criteria. The new development will also provide a large area of public open space and a playground.
The company has confirmed that the development, off Upper Wortley Road, will generate almost £725,000 of investment in local infrastructure and services, including more than £250,000 for education, £72,000 for sustainable travel and a circa £400,000 Community Infrastructure Levy payment.
David Ruffley, Regional Director of Jones Homes Yorkshire, said: “Thorpe Hesley is a popular village, which is a great place to live, work and commute from. Jones Homes has a strong heritage in South Yorkshire and Thorpe Hesley is a location which we know will appeal to our customers.
“The new homes have been designed to echo architectural features from dwellings elsewhere in the village to ensure the development sits comfortably in its surroundings.
“The contributions we are making through our planning obligations will ensure the necessary infrastructure is in place so the village will be well-equipped to cope with this steady growth.”
Jones Homes builds across the North of England and the South East. Its Yorkshire headquarters is located in Cleckheaton. The company, which was established 60 years ago, is currently expanding its footprint, having purchased seven new sites in the Yorkshire division alone over the past year.
Work will start shortly on the homes in Thorpe Hesley and the homes will go on sale towards the end of the year.
