Daniel Smith, Managing Director at Barratt Developments Yorkshire East said: “We are very excited to have work well underway at our brand-new developments in Pocklington.

“Not only will we be building 380 homes across two developments, but we have plans to become very much a part of the Pocklington community by boosting the area with the investment of £5m. Throughout the build this will form improvements on local transport, education and leisure facilities as well as the construction of a new roundabout, if plans are approved.

“Our homes in the East Riding of Yorkshire have proved to be really popular for a wide range of buyers and we are pleased to be providing even more much-needed homes for buyers keen to live in the area. With construction now well underway, we look forward to announcing the launch of the first homes in spring and moving forward with our investment into Pocklington.”
