Leading housebuilder Harron Homes will contribute more than half a million pounds towards bolstering services and facilities that are available to people in Birchencliffe, Huddersfield.

Oaklands Heath is the developer’s sought-after collection homes located within the charming Yorkshire village, which benefits from excellent transport links and is surrounded by breath-taking countryside.

Alongside its work on the scheme, Harron has pledged £234,752 to improving educational facilities within the area.

A total of £75,000 will be given in an effort to help maintain road surfaces on East Street, while £90,000 will enhance public open spaces, with a £66,000 affordable housing contribution.

Additional donations include £20,000 split proportionately between a new bus shelter and the implementation of a Travel Plan Monitoring scheme, and £23,335 for providing metrocards for eligible, local passengers.

Kelly Booth, Marketing and Sales Director said: “It is a huge pleasure to be making these contributions to Birchencliffe, which will come as a huge benefit to those living in and around the village.
