The Yorkshire division of national homebuilder, Bellway Homes says its new development in Snaith will boost the local economy and create a number of new jobs.

To be built just off Pontefract Road, and with direct access to Snaith town centre, the 160-home development takes the total number of Bellway developments in the Yorkshire region to 13.

Philip Logue, Yorkshire’s senior land manager, said: “New housing developments bring significant economic benefits to local communities, a fact that is quite often overlooked.”

“Penny Way will create in the region of 30 new jobs during the construction phase, and when sales commence and people start moving-in they will bring new money into the area and spend it locally, which will provide a boost for local businesses.”

Bellway will be contributing £278,640 in accordance with the Section 106 agreement. This includes £260k in educational contributions and £18k in off-site road improvements. As part of the S106 Bellway will be delivering 32 properties on site as affordable housing.

“When planning to develop anywhere our aim isn’t simply to build houses,” added Bellway Yorkshire’s sales director, Melanie Smith. “We’re here to create homes and communities that people will love in an environment they’ll be proud to call home.”

“The plans for Penny Way certainly demonstrate this aim, and I look forward to seeing this new addition to Snaith growing into a much-loved part of the local community as families move in and breathe life into it.”

Bellway’s Penny Way has been designed to appeal to buyers from all walks and stages of life – from first time buyers through to growing families and on to downsizers.

It features a varied range of designs and includes two-, three- and four-bedroom homes.
