Martin Fox, Regional Development Manager of Stonewater commented: “We are thrilled to complete on this excellent site and continue our ambitious plans delivering affordable housing in the district. Stonewater, a nationwide Housing Association with 1,700 properties in Yorkshire, have an ambitious house-building programme aiming to build 1,000 new homes per year across the country.”
