Work begins on Warmsworth reservoir site
Work has now started on the major new housing development on the site of a former covered reservoir in Doncaster.
Yorkshire property developer Conroy Brook has secured the land for a new family housing development at the former Warmsworth Reservoir site in Doncaster.
Keyland Developments Ltd, the property trading arm of Kelda Group and sister-company to Yorkshire Water, has confirmed the sale of the 1.5 acre site to the award winning Yorkshire property developer.
Conroy Brook's sister company Ben Bailey Homes has secured permission for the development of 19 three and four bedroom family homes ranging from £225,000 to £350,000 on the land, with work scheduled to commence on preparing the site in August.
The former covered reservoir site in Warmsworth is situated in an area of mixed commercial and residential use and is just 4.5km from Doncaster town centre.
The Warmsworth development follows on from the success of HighFields in the Derbyshire village of Clowne, which was the first development for Ben Bailey since the brand was relaunched by Conroy Brook.
The acquisition of the Warmsworth site continues a long-standing relationship between Conroy Brook and Keyland.
Conroy Brook was appointed Keyland’s preferred partner under its Small Sites Initiative (SSI) in 2014 and since then the partnership has led to acclaimed developments in Sheffield, Ingbirchworth and Harrogate.
“Seeing the Warmsworth site getting ready for development is an exciting time for all of us at Ben Bailey and Conroy Brook,” said Sales and Marketing Director Jon Bailey.
“The past few months have been a difficult time for the industry as a whole but we are now working again and looking forward to getting on site as soon as possible.
“Having seen Clowne become such a great success for Ben Bailey in North Derbyshire, we are very eager to see that same standard of workmanship brought to South Yorkshire.”
Peter Garrett, Managing Director of Keyland Developments Ltd, said: “We are pleased to continue our successful relationship with Conroy Brook with the sale of the Warmsworth site.
“The former covered reservoir has been disused for a number of years now and to know that another redundant site is being transformed and brought back into use as a much-needed residential development is an excellent outcome.”
