Housebuilder’s Yorkshire division makes first land acquisition

Crest Nicholson has completed the first land acquisition for its Yorkshire division.

The acquisition, led by Crest Nicholson’s regional director Guy Evans, marks a major milestone for the housebuilder’s expansion into Northern England, with the division planning to build 600 homes annually – playing a key role in Crest Nicholson’s growth strategy to deliver over 4,000 new home completions each year by 2026.

The new development, located between Melton Road and Cadeby Road in the village of Sprotbrough, is an allocation of Doncaster’s Local Plan.

Subject to planning, Crest Nicholson will deliver a mix of approximately 70 open market and affordable homes.

Guy Evans, regional director of Crest Nicholson Yorkshire, said: “The acquisition of Sprotbrough is a significant milestone for Crest Nicholson as we expand into the North. We are actively seeking sought after locations, such as Sprotbrough, given its proximity to the city of Doncaster and connections to other key locations within the region, as part of our commitment to delivering high-quality homes and communities across Yorkshire.”

The site was marketed by JLL’s Yorkshire and North East office.
