House developer submits plans for residential development

Plans have been revealed to develop land in Linthwaite, Huddersfield, following its purchase by house builder, SB Homes.

The site, which was marketed at £650,000 and sold in December by Huddersfield estate agent Wm Sykes, already obtained outline planning permission for 20 dwellings. Now, SB Homes has submitted revised proposals for 15 detached and two semi-detached stone-built homes.

Taking advantage of views stretching across the Colne Valley, the 1.8 acre development is positioned just off Gillroyd Lane in Linthwaite, conveniently located near to Colne Valley High School for families. 

The plans — for three and four bedroom properties — have been drawn up by Dewsbury-based architectural practice Martin Walsh Residential. If they are approved, SB Homes will start work on the site in September, with completion expected in 2019.

Stephen Byram, SB Homes’ managing director, said: “We’ve worked in partnership with renowned architects Martin Walsh Residential to submit plans which we believe are simultaneously sympathetic to current homeowners in the locality, as well as fulfilling a real need for quality homes in the area. We’ve reduced the number of homes on the site which also means that the external areas are spacious.

“Being within easy walking distance to Colne Valley High School, this location is ideal for people looking to move up the property ladder or grow their families. The views are beautiful too — they stretch across to Slaithwaite, Pole Moor and Marsden, and the generous gardens will experience lots of evening sun — a great combination!”

SB Homes is currently developing a 70-home site in Slaithwaite village centre; Empire Works. Just seven apartments remain in phase two, and phase three — a selection of three bedroom homes — is set to be released in the next few months.

“Throughout 21 years, we have forged a reputation for building quality, characterful homes in great locations, and we believe that our award-winning flagship development Empire Works epitomises this. And if our newest site in Linthwaite gets passed, we will bring this level of design, workmanship and quality specification to this premium development too,” Stephen added. 

“As local builders, with a vested interest in the area, we have worked hard to carefully consider the local need for housing and consult nearby residents of the site. By committing to this level of care, I’m sure we will see the same high interest once construction begins, as we have experienced at Empire Works so far. We’re looking forward to investing in this great area of Huddersfield.”

This announcement also comes on the back of SB Homes purchasing the former fire station in Marsden, which is set to be rental accommodation aimed at over 50s. The development has been named Station House by Marsden locals. If it is passed, SB Homes will also call for Linthwaite residents to name their latest development.

“This is just one example of us involving the community within our developments. We want people to be aware that we are always open to constructive feedback/ideas. We can be contacted via telephone, email or by visiting our main office in Marsden if anyone has concerns, queries or suggestions. Our door is always open,” finished Stephen.
