Countryside furthers Yorkshire ties with Guinness Partnership
Mixed-tenure developer Countryside Partnerships has secured a contract with the social housing provider for 40 affordable homes in Barnsley, on a site owned by Homes England.
Guinness Partnerships’ intended site has lain vacant for years, but will now be transformed into a 100% affordable development providing detached and semi-detached houses and terraces made up of two, three and four bedroom homes, as well as two bungalows.
The site marks the third collaboration between Countryside Partnerships’ Yorkshire business and The Guinness Partnership, building on schemes at Foxhill in Sheffield, where 167 affordable homes have been delivered, and at Jossey Lane in Doncaster, where 86 homes are under construction, 41 of which are for Guinness.
Andrew Poyner, managing director of Countryside Partnerships Yorkshire, said: “This site has a long history and we’re delighted to see it finally moving forward in partnership with Guinness. Our shared commitment to providing high-quality, mixed-tenure housing across the region is evident, having already delivered over 200 affordable homes together.
“This new development will transform a previously redundant space that has long been earmarked for development into a vibrant community.”
Angela Garrard, development director (North) at The Guinness Partnership said: “We are pleased to continue working with Countryside Partnership to bring much needed high-quality affordable homes to the area, as part of Guinness’s commitment to development in Barnsley, and South Yorkshire.”
