Homes firm buys two col­lege sites

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

SAX­TON Mee Com­mer­cial has an­nounced the sale of the for­mer Mon­teney and Col­ley Sh­effield Col­lege sites at Par­son Cross to Glee­son Homes and Re­gen­er­a­tion.

The two sites, to­talling nearly 32 acres, pre­vi­ously used as fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion col­leges, be­came sur­plus to re­quire­ments when the col­lege opened fa­cil­i­ties at Hills­bor­ough.

The land had pre­vi­ously been un­der of­fer to Bar­ratt Homes, but plan­ning de­lays and the eco­nomic down­turn pre­vented that sale.

Glee­son Homes came in with a strong bid, even thought the site did not have res­i­den­tial plan­ning con­sent.

A Glee­son spokesman said: “This re­flects our view that Sh­effield is well worth in­vest­ing in.”
