Lovell announces £30m Doncaster development
Lovell has unveiled plans for a £30 million waterside residential development in Doncaster, south Yorkshire.
It will create 147 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes – nearly all for open market sale – on just under 5.6 hectares of land in a prime location at Doncaster Lakeside. Situated two miles south-east of the town centre, Doncaster Lakeside’s host of attractions include the Lakeside Village destination shopping complex, home to 45 big-name stores, and The Dome Leisure Centre. A number of the new homes will overlook the 50-acre lake.
“We’re delighted that our latest development will create these high-quality homes at one of Doncaster’s most sought-after locations,” says regional managing director Robert Adams. “The scheme will meet the strong demand that exists locally for high-quality new-build homes, with our house types carefully designed to suit a variety of prospective buyers, from young professionals and downsizers to families. Residents will enjoy all the advantages of living at Doncaster Lakeside with excellent transport connections and a superb choice of leisure and shopping facilities on their doorstep, as well as the chance to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings of the waterside setting.”
Lovell is set to start preparatory work this year on the Doncaster Lakeside site before beginning construction work on the new homes in summer 2018. The first homes for sale are expected to be ready in 2019 with the overall development set to be completed in 2022. Call Lovell on 0113 202 2200 to register your early interest and for updates on the scheme.
The Doncaster Lakeside scheme is the latest in a series of major land-led developments finalised by Lovell’s Eastern regional business since August 2017. They include The Coppice – a £12 million development of 47 homes at Chapel-en-le-Frith in the Derbyshire Peak District – and The Spires, a £13.2 million, 73-home scheme at Branston, near Lincoln.
“This scheme sets the seal on an excellent 12 months for Lovell Eastern,” says Lovell’s Robert Adams. Lovell’s regional forward order book now exceeds £100 million thanks to its success in securing major land-led new homes developments as well as new homes schemes in partnership with housing associations and local authorities.
