DAVID Wil­son Homes, part of Bar­ratt De­vel­op­ments, will build the first phase of the Joseph Rown­tree Trust’s land­mark £100m hous­ing de­vel­op­ment at Der­wen­thorpe, York. Work will start on the 64 prop­er­ties this month with com­ple­tion due in sum­mer 2012. Once com­pleted, Der­wen­thorpe will pro­vide 540 eco-friendly and en­ergy-efficient homes. They will be avail­able as affordable hous­ing ei­ther as so­cially rented ac­com­mo­da­tion or as shared own­er­ship. The JRHT will re­main com­mis­sion­ers of the Mas­ter­plan for Der­wen­thorpe and long-term stew­ards of the land. JRHT Di­rec­tor of De­vel­op­ment Nigel Ingram says: “Our wish has al­ways been to pro­vide much needed fam­ily and en­ergy-efficient hous­ing in York.”
