Keyland’s first agreements may lead to new housing

Have your say

KEYLAND Developments, Yorkshire Water’s sister company, has signed two agreements which could lead to the creation of hundreds of homes.

Keyland, which has been regenerating Yorkshire Water’s redundant sites for more than 20 years, is now offering its services to other landowners in the North of England.

Under planning promotional agreements (PPAs), Keyland works with landowners, corporates or regulated bodies to help them securing planning permission for new developments.

A spokesman for Keyland said: “Keyland’s first PPAs have just been agreed and involve two separate sites in West Yorkshire, which have a combined 21 acres of land identified by Keyland as prime for residential allocation. The sites could bring about the development of some 240 new homes.

“Project teams of professionals are now being assembled to work closely with the local planning authorities in securing housing allocations, with a view to the sites being brought to market in 2019.”

The precise locations are not being revealed for reasons of commercial confidentiality.

Peter Garrett, Keyland’s managing director, said; “The new agreements we have entered into in West Yorkshire will enable the landowners to derive the maximum potential from their sites with no financial risk.”
