Redrow Secures Land for 277 Homes in Huddersfield

Redrow has acquired 24 acres of land in Huddersfield, with planning approval for 277 homes.

In addition to much needed new homes, the development will also inject £4.7 million of funding into the local community, agreed as part of the planning process through section 106 contributions.

The land at Bradley Villa Farm, off Bradford Road and Bradley Road, will feature a wide range of homes to meet local need. There will be 222 private sale properties, including two, three and four-bedroom designs.

Affordable housing will make up a fifth of the development, with 55 affordable homes planned, including 14 available under Kirklees Council’s First Homes scheme.

John Handley, managing director for Redrow (Yorkshire), said: “We’re excited to bring our new energy efficient Heritage Collection homes to this desirable part of Huddersfield. Located on the edge of a well-established residential area, new homeowners will benefit from excellent existing local amenities and superb transport links.

“The development will also bring wider benefits for the community, with section 106 contributions delivering an economic boost for the local area.

“Our good mix of housing options, from two to four bedrooms, plus affordable homes, will meet strong local demand for high quality housing. Our energy efficient designs, which boast extremely high fabric efficiencies and air source heat pumps in place of gas boilers, should mean our homeowners enjoy lower utility bills.”

The section 106 contributions include around £2 million towards primary and secondary education and early years childcare, more than £820,000 towards highways upgrades and almost £290,000 to improve Bradley Bar roundabout.

Almost £560,000 of the funding will benefit local public open space, while a further £575,0000 will be paid towards the reprovision of the neighbouring golfing and sports facilities. In excess of £230,000 will fund biodiversity enhancements.

More than £140,000 will be given towards sustainable travel measures and a £92,000 contribution towards bus stops will be paid.

Within the development itself, a hectare of the land will become public open space, for use by new residents and the wider community. This includes 400 square metres for play area.

Each home will benefit from electric vehicle charging points, and the homes will all be gas-free, with heating and hot water provided by air source heat pumps, as part of Redrow’s national roll-out of its new Eco Electric specification. This will result in lower carbon emissions when compared to properties with traditional gas boilers, and all detached designs will feature underfloor heating to the ground floors.

Redrow is due to start work on site in September and the first homes should be completed by late summer 2024. The first homes will go on sale in spring 2024.

Redrow is already well known in the area for its recent Stoney Bank Chase development in Holmfirth, and Langley Grange venture in Scissett, which recently sold out.
