The new development, off Wheldon Road, is to offer a range of two, three, four and five bedroom homes adjacent to the River Aire and opposite the RSPB reserve at Fairburn Ings.
The former colliery site, where Fryston Hall once stood, was earmarked for development as part of the Castleford Growth Delivery Plan and was remediated for housing provisions by the Homes and Communities Agency.
Kier Living subsequently acquired the site from Wakefield Council via the Delivery Partner Panel 2 framework which is designed to accelerate delivery of residential led development. Since then Kier Living has developed plans to provide an attractive scheme in keeping with the village environment.
David Mackintosh, sales and marketing director at Kier Living Northern, said: “We are delighted to receive planning approval for this development, which is designed to enhance the existing village with a range of well-presented family homes.
“Riverbank Meadows offers – as the name suggests – offers an attractive setting, on the banks of the river, with no through traffic and direct access to a wonderful area preserved for nature lovers and leisure pursuits.”
Kier Living will start construction this month with a three-year phased completion programme.
