National housebuilder Crest Nicholson has announced it has acquired new land in the popular market town of Elland. The acquisition of a 20-acre site in West Yorkshire will be the housebuilder’s biggest community in Yorkshire, and form a key part of its Yorkshire expansion.

Delivering 227 much needed high quality new homes to the area, the Elland development will offer a range of one to five-bedroom homes, 20% of which will be affordable. Alongside a range of energy efficient new homes, Crest Nicholson will also deliver upgraded open space, recreational areas and new footpath links as part of the scheme proposals.

The site will also be conveniently located near to the proposed new rail station for Elland’s, providing connectivity with the wider region and direct links to Leeds and Manchester.

Work is anticipated to start in late 2024, with first residents expected in the summer of 2025.

Guy Evans, Managing Director at Crest Nicholson Yorkshire said: “We are pleased to announce our newest and largest site acquisition in Yorkshire, continuing our mission to deliver high-quality homes in Yorkshire.

“With work anticipated to start late 2024, the development will have a strong, positive effect on the wider Elland community, providing new jobs, infrastructure and most importantly, much needed high quality homes for local people.”
