Homes firm buys two college sites
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.”
