Gleeson to provide 106 affordable new homes in Bradford

Construction on Shetcliffe Lane will begin in the Autumn of this year

Gleeson has been granted planning permission to build 106 homes off Shetcliffe Lane in Bierley, Bradford. The new development, will see the 9.04 acre plot be transformed into a collection of beautiful, high quality, low-cost two, three and four bedroom semi-detached and detached homes.

Demonstrating its commitment to regeneration and enriching the communities in which it builds, the site, which was formerly playing fields, will be Gleeson’s fourth development within the city region. Once this project is complete, Gleeson Homes will have provided a total of 561 much-needed affordable, quality homes in Bradford.

With the average two bedroom Gleeson home selling for £160,000 and various buying schemes available, Gleeson expects these homes to be highly desirable, especially amongst first-time buyers and young families in the area.

Construction on Shetcliffe Lane will begin in the Autumn of this year, continuing until Summer 2026 and will provide many direct jobs. The development’s show homes will open in summer 2023, with the first new homes released for sale shortly before, and the first residents expected to move into their new homes in winter 2023.

Northbeck Grange, another Gleeson development within the Bradford area, is providing 167 much-needed, affordable homes for young first time buyers in Bradford and is about to launch three show homes later in the summer.

Gleeson runs a Community Matters programme that ensures local communities where Gleeson builds also feel the benefit of new developments, with the housebuilder understanding the importance of involving local people before and during the construction of its homes, leaving a legacy once works are complete.

The programme also sees Gleeson donate to and work with local sports teams and community groups, collaborate with schools on a range of initiatives and provide jobs and apprenticeships for local people.

Bryan Simpson, divisional managing director at Gleeson, said: “At Gleeson, we are determined to ensure that the housing market better serves young first-time buyers and families on low to average incomes, so we are delighted to be bringing 106 affordable new homes to Bradford, our fifth development within the city region.

“We are pleased to be championing the area, supporting the community with our affordable homes, and employing a workforce that will be made up of local labour and contractors.”
