Plans approved to build 187 dwellings in Cantley

The majority of the new homes will be market housing and 43 will be available for affordable social renting

Doncaster Council’s planning committee this week approved an application from Persimmon Homes to build 187 dwellings in Cantley. The estate will be built on Land South of Doncaster Road. It will consist of a variety of apartments, semi-detached and detached houses ranging from one to four bedrooms.

While the majority will be market housing, 43 will be available for affordable social renting. 15 percent of the estate will be allocated for public open space, including a trim trail area.

Mark Beevers, Head of Land and Planning at Persimmon South Yorkshire spoke in favour of the application: “This development offers an exciting opportunity to provide much needed need homes for families, young people and downsizers in Cantley and the surrounding area.

“As well as providing a mix of house sizes, home owners will enjoy significant areas of green space, cycle routes, play areas and new footpaths.

“Over £1.3 million of funding will also be invested in two local schools, further supporting the local community.”
