Following its previous success in Beverley, Linden Homes North is poised to launch another new development in the popular East Yorkshire market town. Parklands Mill will consist of 54 two, three and four-bedroom properties.

The first batch of homes is due for completion this autumn, but customers can register their interest now at Chris Clubley estate agents’ new office in the town centre. For initial enquiries and more details on the new homes, contact 0844 5430788 or contact Chris Clubley, tel: 01482 862846, www.chrisclubley.co.uk.

Beverley is a hot spot for buyers thanks to its location and amenities.

Work has started on a new homes development close to Rothwell town centre. The £3m project will see a former school transformed into 14 homes.

The Grade II listed building on Carlton Lane is being developed by Leeds-based company Advent Developments and RJ Cadman Construction has been appointed to carry out the conversion work.

The new properties include a range of two to five bedroom homes with gardens and parking.

The scheme is designed by Leeds architecture practice West and Machell. Prices start from £195,000 and work is due to complete by the end of the year. Visit www.carltongreen.co.uk

Those living in energy inefficient privately-rented homes already need to spend around £1,000 more a year to keep warm compared to the average home.

The Building & Engineering Services Association says that new regulations coming into force will compel landlords to upgrade properties rated F and G to a minimum of E by April 1, 2018. Almost ten per cent of homes fall below the E rating.

The association’s Mark Oakes says: “This is one of the most significant pieces of legislation to impact the housing sector in a very long time and potentially a step change in improving housing stock.”

The oldest house in Settle is on the market. Bishopdale House, which dates back to 1620, is on the market for £255,000 with Dacre, Son and Hartley. The grade II listed property, which has an adjoining shop, is between The Naked Man Cafe and Cave and Crag. It has been renovated and has an entrance hall and first floor living kitchen, dining area and snug.

On the second floor, there is a large master bedroom with open plan bathroom and separate toilet, plus a second double bedroom. On the ground floor is a separate shop unit. For cdetails, contact Dacre, Son and Hartley, tel: 01729 823921, www.dacres.co.uk

OnTheMarket, the new estate agents’ property portal, has recorded reductions in the time properties are advertised for sale, according to research by Home.co.uk. The portal was launched in an attempt to quash the dual dominance of Rightmove and Zoopla. On January 1, the average time properties were on the market was 224 days but by March 19, this had dropped to 195 days.
