Work has officially started on the first new homes at City Fields in Wakefield as part of the multi-million pound development which will help regenerate the east side of the city.
Representatives from Miller Homes, which will construct 118 new homes under the first phase of its development, were joined on site by Coun Peter Box, leader of Wakefield Council.
Miller Homes led a consortium which has planning approval for a total of 500 new homes at City Fields, including the first 118. The two to five bedroom family homes will be released for sale during the summer. The planning permission includes construction of the north western section of the Wakefield East Relief Road, including an enlarged roundabout at Bar Lane and a link onto Aberford Road, and contributions of £1.4m towards local education provision.
