More than 100 new homes being built on 10 acre site

The pandemic has failed to stop work on a multi-million pound residential development between Sheffield and Worksop.

South Yorkshire developers BIG City Co have confirmed that the show home for the Chapel Waters project, in the village of Rhodesia, will be opening in July.

The previously undeveloped 10 acre green field site located off the A57 is BIG City Co’s second site, with 111 new homes, including 55 bungalows and 56 family homes.

The project offers a series of one, two and three bed single-level homes catering for down sizers.

And the development also features two, three and four bedroom family homes complete with public open space, and a sustainable urban drainage system which even includes a duck pond and bird hide.

It is being funded by ASG Money, delivered by Broadfield Construct and designed by Architects CODA Studios.

BIG City Co was founded by David Cross, chairman of CODA Studios, Stewart Davies and Anthony Cundall of Barnsley energy specialist A Shade Greener – which is providing vital funding – and financial expert Ian Hart of ASG Money.

BIG City says it aims to fill the ‘missing-middle’ of the housing market by delivering starter homes, bungalows and urban regeneration.

Cross said: “Despite months of uncertainty in the construction industry, we are delighted to be able to say that Chapel Waters is progressing pretty much on schedule and our show home will be opening in July, just four weeks behind our planned launch date.

“At the same time, the first 14 properties on the site will be ready for our buyers. These range from two bed starter homes to four bed executive homes and two bed bungalows.

“Later phases will include more house types across the portfolio to appeal to an even wider range of buyer.

“We have one bed bungalows for the entry level buyer up to three bed luxury bungalows overlooking the duck pond with a series of two bed bungalows and more townhouses across the site.

“Early enquiries have proven strong with a database of first-time and last-time buyers alongside families already contacting us for our development.”

Phase One prices at the scheme start from £149,950.
