Mixed-tenure developer Countryside has exchanged contracts with Homes England to deliver 200 new homes in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
Of the 200 homes, 140 will be available on the open market, while the remaining properties will be allocated to affordable rent and affordable ownership.
The development will see the conversion of several buildings to create 16 homes alongside 184 new-build properties.
The new development will replace the former National Policing Improvement Agency training centre, which was situated near Yew Tree Lane.
The scheme is the first for Countryside in Harrogate since establishing its presence in Yorkshire in 2019.
Homes England appointed Countryside as partner via its Delivery Partner Panel 3 (DPP3) framework.
Commenting on the development, Chris Penn, managing director of Partnerships in Yorkshire at Countryside, said: “Since establishing our presence in Yorkshire in 2019, we have delivered a number of developments across the region that fulfil our ambition to create beautiful homes that collectively form new and sustainable communities.
“This is a vision we share with Homes England, and we are delighted to have exchanged contracts for the redevelopment of the site at Yew Tree Lane in Harrogate.
“We look forward to progressing the scheme with Homes England to accommodate the local need for high-quality and efficient new homes.”
Construction is due to begin in early 2022.
