Plans for Carr Lodge have been lodged with Doncaster Borough Council for 334 homes in the hope that work can start in March.
The Homes and Communities Agency has brought the regeneration scheme forward under the Government’s Accelerated Land Delivery Programme.
HCA bosses chose Keepmoat for the first phase, which will see the development of 172 homes at Carr Lodge in Doncaster.
A further 132 larger homes and 30 self-build housing plots will also be delivered with support from Strata Homes.
The housing project will be Doncaster’s second low-carbon community and will consist of 1,500 mixed tenure homes.
All homes will be designed to the Government’s Code for Sustainable Homes level 3 and are designed to be ‘Lifetime Homes’. Doncaster’s first Low carbon scheme, also built by Keepmoat was on HCA land at Bentley.
The scheme will see a new single carriageway spine road developed to link the roundabouts at either end of Woodfield Way, adjacent to the Tesco Supermarket in the south and the Holiday Inn in the north in Balby, Doncaster.
Across the wider development of 1,500 homes, a new main street and village square incorporating shops and a community hall will be developed as well as incorporating other community facilities, a children’s nursery, a primary school, youth club, sports pitches, play areas and a linear park.
Mark Knight, new build managing director for Keepmoat Yorkshire, said: “As a local company based in Doncaster, it means a lot to be involved in such a significant, flagship project that will have a long lasting impact on the area.”
The development is expected to take three years to complete.
