Hundreds more homes being developed in town

Barratt and David Wilson Homes Yorkshire East has construction underway on the first homes at its two new developments in Pocklington, East Yorkshire.

Named Stewarts Reach and Wolds View, the developments will together comprise 380 new homes across a selection of two, three and four bedroom homes. They will feature a mix of house types including detached, semi-detached, terrace, bungalow and apartments.

The first homes are expected to go on sale at both developments in early summer.

In addition to providing 380 new homes for Pocklington, Barratt and David Wilson Homes Yorkshire East will also be providing a community contribution of approximately £5m.

It will include £42,180 towards local primary and secondary education, as well as more than £200,000 to create outdoor sports facilities.

An additional £20,000 will be allocated to bus stops around the area to support the local public transport systems. A further £290,000 will be used to upgrade Pocklington’s skatepark, install play equipment at the development and create community allotments.

Barratt and David Wilson Homes Yorkshire East also plans to invest in the construction of a new roundabout close to the new developments.

If planning is approved by the local authority, the housebuilder plans to provide a new roundabout on the A1079, close to improve access to Pocklington and travel towards Hull and York.

Daniel Smith, managing director at Barratt Developments Yorkshire East, said: “We are very excited to have work well underway at our new developments in Pocklington.

“Not only will we be building 380 homes across two developments, but we have plans to become very much a part of the Pocklington community by boosting the area with the investment of £5m.

“Throughout the build this will form improvements on local transport, education and leisure facilities as well as the construction of a new roundabout, if plans are approved.

“With construction now well underway, we look forward to announcing the launch of the first homes in spring and moving forward with our investment into Pocklington.”
