Wakefield Council look at ways to add needed homes

Glass Houghton Colliery
Wakefield Council is looking at ways to build more homes near the city, and have recently outlined a plan to build over 560 new properties at a former colliery in Glass Houghton. This will be in addition to plans to add over 500 more homes on the outskirts of Wakefield and Leeds. The Councils Planning and Highways committee has granted outline permission for development works along with the full permissions of land remediation work at the site in Glass Houghton. Speaking about the plans, Councillor Denise Jeffery, said: “We have been working on this application for some time and working on the redevelopment of the pit for about 14 years. This development could really transform the Castleford area.” This announcement comes as great news for ABi Garage Doors, who have been supplying garage doors for new housing developments in Wakefield and Leeds for over 30 years, working with a number of national and smaller house builders. The exciting announcement of over 1000 new homes at developments in Leeds and Wakefield will offer ABi the opportunity to tender for these contracts for the supply and installation of Hörmann garage door products. As a Hörmann main dealer, ABi can supply and install the very latest Hörmann products, including garage doors and accessories.
