Esh Construction set for Castleford housing project

January 2021

Esh Construction is poised to commence work on a £9.2 million scheme which will deliver 82 new homes for affordable rent and shared ownership in Castleford.

The land is being jointly developed by Leeds Federated Housing Association (LFHA) and WDH, with each registered provider managing 43 units and 39 units respectively. 

Designed by Leeds-based Brewster Bye Architects, and supported with Homes England funding, a mix of two-, three-, and four-bedroom houses will be constructed as well as four bungalows.  The scheme will transform a 2.2-hectare patch of unused grassland.

Esh Construction’s affordable housing division has been appointed as the design and build contractor for the development – which includes new road construction and all associated external works – working in partnership with Brewster Bye Architects, BWA (Europe) Ltd, and Walker Ingram Associates.

Stuart Leslie, Divisional Director at Esh Construction, said: “We are delighted to have secured this contract and to be working in partnership once again with Leeds Federated Housing Association and WDH.  We are due to commence work on circa £50 million of new affordable housing schemes across the Yorkshire region in the coming months and this is yet another great project which we are proud to be delivering for the community.” 

Sue Young, WDH's Executive Director of Investment, said: "As a business we are always looking for opportunities to provide high quality homes within the local area, both for affordable rent and sale with shared ownership.  This scheme will enhance the area, providing more families and professionals with great places to live, and offers a range of modern living options for prospective customers and tenants with excellent transport links to the M62.”

Construction work is expected to commence in February 2021, with a view to the first new homes being available for residents in Summer 2022.
