In addition to housing, the site will also feature substantial attractive green open spaces for recreational use, as well as a fully equipped play area and two new sports pitches.

The site, named Salkeld Meadows, will generate opportunities in training and employment through the use of sub-contractors, work placements and educational visits to the site.

Daniel Crew, regional managing director at Keepmoat Homes, said: “We are really excited to transform the site, which is in a prominent location by the sea, into a new neighbourhood.

“I am very familiar with the area as I spent many childhood summers with my grandparents just across the road from the site, and I know it will be a desirable place to live.

“Our vision is to create a place where people want to live and enjoy, and we’re driven to ensure the development is a major benefit to the local community.”
