Home-builder Taylor Wimpey has confirmed they are in the process of preparing a planning application for land off Bradford Road, which will offer added community benefits.

The plans are for an exclusive development of just 80 family homes, of which 24 will be classified affordable housing.

As well as offering high-quality new homes Taylor Wimpey has revealed extensive local investment will be made including a £592,000 contribution into Wakefield Councils New Homes Bonus during the anticipated three year build.

Andy Roberts, strategic land and planning manager for Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire said: “We are delighted to be proposing this latest scheme in Wrenthorpe, which will not only offer up some stylish new homes, but will also see us make contributions via a planning agreement to education and public open space.”

Homes will include a mix of detached and semi-detached designs, and Taylor Wimpey has assured financial schemes to assist eligible purchasers will also be available, including the government-backed Help to Buy initiative.

Mr Roberts said: “As a company, we are always keen to involve the public at the earliest of stages so they are fully aware of our intentions, and give them an opportunity to express any concerns they may have before we submit our application.”

Taylor Wimpey is set to submit the planning application in June and are encouraging Wrenthorpe locals to get in touch via the website and have their say.
