A number of high profile construction projects have been announced across Yorkshire this week. The new developments promise an increase in demand for skilled construction and trades workers in the area over the next few years.
The first details on plans for the redevelopment of Sheffield’s former ski village have been announced.
The £22.5m project is to be led by EXTREME Destinations and will consist of a new sports, leisure and entertainment destination on the 48 acre site in Parkwood Springs. It is expected that the development will create around 100 jobs.
Chris Lewis, from EXTREME said: "Our discussions to date have shown the very real potential of this site. We have had many interesting discussions about bringing adventure sports to Parkwood. We are developing a bid for Sheffield City Region funding and having highly positive discussions to bring our plans closer to reality."
Two planning applications have been recommended for approval in the Harrogate area of North Yorkshire.
The two sites, which together propose the development of over 140 homes, will be considered by Harrogate Borough Council’s planning committee on 3rd July.
Opus North have proposed the build of 72 new homes in Spofforth, 40% of which will be affordable housing. And Strata Homes have proposed a further 72 houses in Dishforth, comprising of a combination of detached and semi-detached properties.
Avantis Piccadilly, supported by O’Neill Associates have submitted plans for the construction of a new hotel in the centre of York.
The plans propose a 61,800 sq ft hotel that consists of 155 bedrooms over 6 storeys, with front and back of house facilities on the ground floor. The plans also include an additional residential block of 8 apartments, comprising of six 2 bedroom flats and two 3 bedroom duplexes.
Planning permission has been granted to Leeds & Yorkshire Housing Association for the build of 54 new homes in Athersley South.
The £5.7m residential development will be partly funded by a £2m Homes England grant and consist of 8 apartments, 6 bungalows and 40 houses.
Construction work on the project is expected to last around 15 months, starting this summer and scheduled for completion in autumn 2019.
