New housing development in Harrogate district - Daniel Smith, managing director of Barratt Developments Yorkshire East.

The five-star builder will invest more than £26 million into the construction of a new development in Boroughbridge, building 276 new homes.

The new development will provide work for an estimated 256 jobs in a number of disciplines, from construction trades such as bricklayers, electricians and landscapers through to head office support positions.

In addition to contributing to the regional job market, Barratt Developments Yorkshire East will also continue to support the local environments in which it builds. During 2019 alone, 54,506 trees and shrubs were planted or retained on developments and 96% of construction waste diverted from landfill.

A further 11.2 hectares of green space was created through publicly accessible open space and private gardens, equivalent to around 572 tennis courts.

Daniel Smith, managing director of Barratt Developments Yorkshire East, said “We’re very pleased to be able to contribute to the local economy in York and support a wealth of jobs across the region. We are committed to investing in and supporting our local tradesmen, and look forward to working with them over the next 12 months to build even more quality homes.”
