Persimmon Homes and Crosslee PLC have been given planning consent to develop 147 new homes on vacant land next to Crosslee in the Calderdale village of Hipperholme in West Yorkshire.
The planned properties are sure to appeal to house hunters seeking to find a property in Calderdale, where the existing supply of new homes is low.
Gaining final planning consent has proved time-consuming, despite the fact that Calderdale councillors gave the scheme outline planning permission back in June 2010.
According to the plans, Persimmon Homes and Crosslee Plc want to build five five-bedroom houses; 47 four-bedroom; 20 three-bedroom detached; 60 three-bedroom semi-detached and terraced and 15 two-bedroom homes.
In total there will be 13 different housing styles. Some will have internal garages and three different types of brick will be used.
The housebuilder has also agreed to contribute £100,000 towards Calderdale's schools and £20,000 for bus stops to serve the site.
Persimmon Homes, one of the UK's leading housebuilders, is currently developing a wide selection of new homes across West Yorkshire, including schemes in Huddersfield, Castleford, Bradford and Leeds.
