159 New Homes Could Be Built in Doncaster

Doncaster residents could see a new housing estate popping up in the area after a developer has submitted plans to the local authority to build 159 new properties.

The Yorkshire Post reported that Keepmoat Homes has handed an application form to Doncaster Council for the site, which would be on the former Brodsworth Colliery next to the Skylarks Grange development, north-west of Doncaster.

A spokesperson for the developer told the publication said this phase of housebuilding would sit alongside the first development on the site, which consists of 342 mixed-tenure houses.

It was stated that this would “allow a greater mix of house types and tenures”, adding: “The new phase will be designed primarily for the first-time buyer market, allowing families and young people [to] get on to the housing ladder.”

Keepmoat Homes is planning to deliver the properties, which would include two, three and four-bedroom houses, with Homes England.

Regional managing director at the company Dan Crew stated the newly proposed phase would “offer the perfect options for first-time buyers and complement the existing new homes”.

He added this, along with the Skylarks Grand development, is “transforming the former Brodsworth Colliery”.

The former coalmine in the north-west of Doncaster started to be built in 1905. It was periodically worked on until 1989, after it began to make losses. It was officially closed by British Coal on September 7th 1990, and demolished the year after.
