A £10 MILLION development which will see 220 new homes being built just a few miles away from the town centre has been approved by Barnsley Council.

The multi-million pound development from Persimmon Homes will be built off Mitchells Way, Wombwell, on a 13-acre site.

Wayne Gradwell, managing director, said: "This new development is an integral part of our expansion programme to bring further new homes to the region.

"Our plans for the site includes a mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes to suit a range of buyers, from those looking to get on the property ladder for the first time to families seeking more space as they grow."

Construction is scheduled to commence in December 2014 with the first properties expected to be occupied by the spring of 2015.

You will probs be able to 75/25 option but the likihood of a company like persimmon doing a rent to buy scheme is slim as there a company that likes to make profit quick like most house builders

'Profit' is not a dirty word. There is nothing wrong with making a profit.

Will they build a doctors, school, shops, dentist etc ?? it's ok building a load of new house but what about amenities to serve that new community instead they'll just expect the existing ones to take the strain. Expect to wait longer to see ya gp

Hope this development goes ahead £10 million divided by 220 means an average price around £45,000 can I buy one or more. Keep a watch on this and see how much they really sell for

How many will have avoidable housing to eventually devalue the estate just like Manvers and see loads of for sale signs going up
