National Coalfields scheme in Doncaster to create new construction jobs
1,600 new homes are to be built in Doncaster after developers John Thompson & Partners were granted planning permission to begin work on the scheme.
BD Online report that the architect firm John Thompson & Partners will be developing the Carr Lodge area in Doncaster. The plans include the delivery of 1,600 new homes, as well as a main street and the construction of a new village square for community events.
The scheme is part of the National Coalfields Programme, which is being run by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and has already built over 2,700 homes and created over 20,000 jobs. The initiative by the HCA seeks to create opportunities for new homes by investing and developing former coal mines.
Local people originally protested against this new development, but Clare San Martin from John Thompson & Partners said in a statement:
“Local people initially turned out to protest but once we started talking to them and involving them in the decision-making process it became clear that development could also deliver many benefits so Carr Lodge becomes a community and not just another housing estate.”
This scheme in Doncaster will likely create new jobs in the construction industry for plumbing, electrical and gas contractors, as thousands of new homes will be built as part of the project.
