Mixed development project at Lowfield Green, York

Having the opportunity to work for nationwide clients as their trusted Clerks of Works provider, is something which we feel grateful for and enables us to continue to grow and expand our portfolios across multiple sectors.  In recent weeks, we are delighted to confirm that City of York Council have appointed us to provide Quality Site Inspection (Clerks of Works services) for their large expansion project at Lowfield Green, in York.

The scheme, located in Acomb, is the biggest house-build programme for the City of York Council since the 1970s. The 4.54-hectare site will compromise of 140 high-quality new build homes, a health centre, care home, police station and recreational green space.

Homes will be a mixture of council housing and shared ownership, with 40% being affordable – over twice the minimum planning requirement. In addition, the site includes six self-build plots with services provided and modern housing specialist, YorSpace will be developing a community build co-housing scheme which includes the design of 19 financially and environmentally sustainable homes.

The new village green will provide more than an acre of open public space, with play facilities, community growing spaces and natural planting. The neighbourhood and vehicular routes will provide links for pedestrians and cycling, with the aim of reducing traffic and promoting outdoor walking and cycling activities.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to provide Clerk of Works services for City of York Council’s multi-expansion development. This is an exciting venture which will provide affordable council housing and opportunities for first time buyers, with the addition of a brand-new community complex and lots of green space.”
