New homes to be built in Yorkshire

People seeking apartments to rent in Yorkshire may welcome the announcement that a number of new flats are to be created in the Barnsley area of the county.

According to reports in the Yorkshire Post, a total of 16 such homes are to be built as part of a scheme that will see 78 residences created over the next year.

The project has received funding from the government's Local Authority Challenge Fund initiative, which was intended to aid the construction sector during the recession.

Local councillor Bill Newman said the scheme is "great news" for people in the area.

He added that it will "complement our drive to provide high-quality affordable housing across the borough".

It is hoped that the first of the new residences will be available for letting by the autumn of this year.

Meanwhile, another housing development in Buckshaw Village, Chorley has been receiving considerable attention from prospective buyers, according to developer Barratt.
