Housing development in Sheffield gathering pace

Housebuilder Walshaw Homes is constructing 22 high-quality homes on a plot of land on the site of a demolished social club in Main Street, Hackenthorpe, Sheffield.

Specialist lender Together has agreed a £3.6million funding facility for a luxury family-orientated homes development in South Yorkshire.

The homes are available for between £225,000 and £350,000 have received “significant” interest from off-plan buyers, despite not yet having been completed, according to Walshaw Homes managing director Joel Richards.

He said: “Construction is now well underway, with foundations in place for five of the plots, and there has been a huge amount of local interest.

“These new, modern two and three storey homes will be ideal for couples and young families and are next door to local shops with other amenities such as the Crystal Peaks shopping centre and the Rother Valley Country Park just on the doorstep.”

Richards approached Together, which provides commercial and development finance after acquiring the site of the long since demolished Cherry Tree Social Club.

Becky Hall, head of origination at Together, said: “We agreed to provide the funding after seeing the potential of the location and having been really impressed with the vision of Walshaw Homes and its Managing Director, Joel Richards.

“I already had a strong business relationship with the developer, having worked with them in the past, so it’s great to help Joel and the team realise their ambitions for this latest scheme as it begins to take shape – it will bring quality housing to meet the needs of Sheffield’s growing population.”

Planning permission for the housing scheme was granted in November last year, allowing construction to begin in June. It is expected to be completed by August 2023.
