Harrogate-based development company, Gregory Properties, says it wants to expand its residential portfolio and is actively seeking new sites with development potential across Yorkshire.

The announcement follows the successful sale of all 22 family homes at its latest new development, Church View in Dacre Banks, North Yorkshire.

Church View has involved a successful regeneration of a disused former brownfield site to provide much needed new housing, including affordable housing in the area.

Nick Gillott, the recently appointed development director at Gregory Properties, said: “The Group has been active in property development for over 30 years, and we’re well versed in taking on difficult sites that often need a considerable amount of remediation.

“In line with our regeneration policy we continue to consider such sites in our future acquisition strategy and are actively looking for new opportunities in the Yorkshire region ideally where we could build a minimum of 20 houses.”

The business has also almost completed and sold all 29 houses at Hutton Hall, another cluster of family homes in Eccleshill, Bradford on the site of a derelict school building.

It plans to build further homes on an adjacent site in Eccleshill and new development opportunities are being pursued in the region.

Gregory Property Group is responsible for landmark regeneration projects including the £40m Foss Islands Retail Park York, Darlington Retail Park, Gate Park Retail Park in Rotherham, Mabgate Junction in Leeds, Wheatley Hall Park in Doncaster and the £40m Broad Street Plaza destination in Halifax.

It has most recently delivered The Refinery a £30m, 407-bed student accommodation project on the fringe of Leeds city centre and the speculative development of 150,000 sq ft of distribution space at Park 32 Pontefract.
