Barratt Developments has started work on a new 300-home scheme after completing the acquisition of a site in Cottingham, East Yorkshire.
The housebuilder has begun access excavations on the 30-acre Poppy Fields project in Harland Way, following preliminary work carried out by Lovel Developments.
Lovel Developments began its public consultation on the site in September 2014 and secured planning permission to build more than 300 homes, ranging from four-bedroom detached houses to terraced homes, apartments and affordable housing. The plans also include public open space, play areas and flood alleviation facilities.
Mike Roberts, Barratt Developments' regional managing director, said: "Lovel's expert knowledge ensured a smooth and seamless transfer of land ownership, with the team completing many of the complicated elements ahead of our acquisition. We're looking forward to starting work on the new development in Cottingham, creating high quality properties for future homeowners to enjoy."
