Sale of Harrogate development site completes

THE former Ironbridge reservoir site in Harrogate has been sold to a developer for a proposed luxury housing scheme.

Acting on behalf of Keyland Developments, agents DTZ and Sanderson Weatherall completed the sale of the site on Cornwall Road to Linden Homes North.

The site, which adjoins the Duchy area to the north of the town centre, has outline planning for residential development.

Linden is proposing to build 30 luxury family homes on the 10 acre site which will also provide 20 apartments.

DTZ director Phil Roebuck said: “This is a magnificent development site which offers the opportunity to create a high quality natural extension to the Duchy Estate.”

Peter Garrett, managing director of Keyland Developments, said: “We have worked long and hard with the Council and Duchy residents to ensure an appropriate reuse of this excellent redundant brownfield site and are delighted with the outcome.”

Ian Hessay, managing director of Linden Homes North, added: “We are excited at the prospect of delivering some very special homes in this exceptional location.”

Mary Kirk of Wrigley Solicitors acted for Keyland in the transaction. Linden was represented by Stephen Glass of Bond Dickinson.
