Layout features

As part of the planning consent for this development, a number of new homes are designated as affordable housing. These properties will remain as affordable housing tenure and are specifically shown to make it clear that they are not available for general sale. The remaining homes on the development are available for open market sale, including “bulk sales” (meaning the sale of more than one home to a single purchaser) to purchasers, who could be private individuals or another type of purchaser (for example local authorities, housing associations or other commercial landlords), and therefore the mix of tenures on a development may change.

The perfect place to be

Ember Mews is located just north of Pontefract’s town centre and is less than 5 minutes away from the M62 and the A1. This means that all of Yorkshire’s cities, from Huddersfield to Hull, are an easy drive from the development. Pontefract Monkhill Train Station is less than a mile away, providing routes along the Grand Central line as well as the Northern line. This means that residents will have direct access to Knottingley in six minutes, Leeds in 32 minutes, Manchester in under two hours and London Kings Cross in just over two hours.
