National property consultancy Carter Jonas, acting on behalf of private landowners, has sold a residential development site on Church Lane in Cayton, near Scarborough, to Barratt Developments plc, the UK’s largest housebuilder.
Carter Jonas was instructed to sell the development site with the benefit of outline planning permission. Barratt was selected as the preferred developer to pursue reserved matters. The 9.48 acre (3.84 ha) site has planning consent for 96 homes, offering a mixture of terraced, semi-detached and detached homes of a range of sizes and styles.
The new development will be called St John’s View, with its range of homes built under the David Wilson Homes brand.
Steven Soper, Associate in Carter Jonas’ Leeds office, commented: “The coastal village of Cayton is just three miles south of Scarborough. With the popular Cayton Bay within walking distance and a good range of local amenities, it is the ideal location for a new community.”
Peter Morris, Development Director at Barratt Developments Yorkshire East, commented: “Our acquisition of the Church Lane site in Cayton will enable us to build on our successful track record of bringing a variety of much-needed new homes to the region. We’re eager to start construction and begin speaking to local prospective homeowners about the properties available.”
It is anticipated that construction work will begin on site in February and the first homes are due to be available from this summer.
