Persimmon Homes

70-acre site sold to housebuilder

Housebuilder Persimmon Homes has purchased a 70-acre development site in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.


The two adjoining sites – off Penny Pot Lane – have outline consent for the construction of 600 homes, a primary school, plus retail and leisure spaces.

Reserved matters approval has also been secured for the first phase of 238 units, including affordable housing.

Property agents Cushman & Wakefield – on behalf of Woodard Corporation and Hallam Land Management – and Carter Jonas – on behalf of Mealia Partnership – negotiated the sale of the site.

Phil Roebuck, partner and head of residential development at Cushman & Wakefield, said: “We are delighted to have completed the sale of this substantial and attractive edge of town site, which will make a significant contribution to the delivery of much-needed private and affordable homes in Harrogate.” 

Enabling work is expected to begin imminently.

Simon Usher, managing director at Persimmon Homes (Yorkshire), added: “Penny Pot Lane in Harrogate is an excellent location to live.

“We will be providing a wide range of new homes, from two-bedrooms to five-bedrooms.

“Construction work will start very soon, and we look forward to seeing people moving into our houses from autumn this year.”
