Owen Michaelson, Chief Executive of Harworth, said: “These are three excellent individual deals for the business that reflect two key fundamentals – the ongoing strength of the Yorkshire property market; and the ongoing popularity of our engineered land with housebuilders, with Taylor Wimpey, Barratt and Avant all being repeat customers.

“The overall receipt also reflects the ongoing maturity of two of our major developments, reflecting our skill as master developers to create attractive new places to live and work.”
