Gleeson to bring 333 affordable, quality new homes to Doncaster

Gleeson Homes has been granted planning permission to build 333 homes off Broomhouse Lane in Warmsworth, Doncaster. 

The development which will be known as Danum Glade will see the 41.4 acre plot of brownfield land be transformed into beautiful, high quality, low cost 2, 3 and 4 bedroom semi-detached and detached homes. Gleeson will regenerate the land which was formerly a colliery spoil tip for the old Yorkshire main colliery, creating an exciting new community.

With house prices on the development anticipated to start from just £144,000 for a 2 bedroom home Gleeson expect these homes to be highly attractive to first-time buyers and young families in the area.

Construction at Danum Glade will begin imminently and will span until summer 2031. The developments four show homes are estimated to open late spring 2023, with the first homes released for sale spring 2023, and the first residents expected to move into their new home summer 2023.

Gleeson will make several contributions to enrich the local community, including £153,000 towards off-site affordable housing. Gleeson will also engage with the community as part of their Community Matters programme, which sees the housebuilder collaborate with local schools, charities and businesses, supporting local people.

Bryan Simpson, Divisional Managing Director of Yorkshire and Midlands at Gleeson said:

“We are thrilled to be bringing our affordable, quality homes to Warmsworth. We are dedicated to ensuring that the housing market better serves young first-time buyers and families on low to average incomes making homeownership a reality. This is the ideal location for a Gleeson development and we thrive developing brownfield land, turning often unsightly, unused land into desirable homes.

“We are looking forward to working with the local community and we will be looking to employ a workforce that comprises of local labour, including apprentices, and contractors.”

Based in Sheffield, Gleeson has seen great success in Doncaster with their new developments, including Kilner Park in Denaby Main, which is due to be completed early 2023, bringing 175 much-needed homes to the neighbourhood.
