Greenfield Site Residential Development Opportunity
The greenfield site of arable farmland comprises a gross area of approximately 28.98 acres (11.73 hectares). The site is arranged in a broadly ‘L’ shape, with a main square area fronting on to Barnsley Road and Pontefract Road, together with a smaller rectangular area to the south. To the western, southern and eastern boundaries there is established residential development, predominantly from the post war period onwards. There are also playing fields to the southern boundary, immediately adjacent to the subject site. There are a small number of light industrial occupiers across Barnsley Road to the north. Overhead High Voltage electricity cables cut across the centre of the site, trending in a northeast–southwest direction, with a pylon and associated electrical substation adjacent to the northern site boundary. The site’s topography is relatively flat across the site.
