Wates – Lowfields Green

Davison Fencing are delighted to be working alongside our Client Wates Construction on another exciting new build housing development.

City of York Council has given Wates a contract to build 140 homes on the site of the former Lowfields School.

Lowfields Green is the first of eight sites included in City of York Council’s biggest house-building programme since the 1970s. The development will include a mix of sizes and tenures, from starter homes to property aimed at older residents.
Half will be council housing and half for shared ownership. In addition, the site includes six self-build plots with services provided and a community build by YorSpace providing 19 households the chance to have their own home.

Councillor Denise Craghill, executive member for housing and safer neighbourhoods, said: “We are committed to building high-quality homes at Lowfield Green and are delighted that we have secured Wates to build them. Their reputation for well-built homes matches our ambition as does their commitment to sustainable construction.”
