Railway Terrace Residential Development – Wakefield
Normanton, Wakefield, West Yorkshire
Bowman Riley designed 16 new affordable homes on Railway Terrace situated in Normanton town centre adjacent to the railway station.
Normanton is a town within the city of Wakefield famed for its railway and mining heritage. Having suffered decline in the years following the miners’ strike in the mid 1980s, Normanton has today become a growing commuter suburb of the Leeds City Region, favoured for its relatively low cost housing and excellent transport links.
The Railway Terrace perimeter development provides two and three bedroom detached and semi-detached family homes each with two car parking spaces and rear gardens on land that had been vacant for 20 years following the demolition of a housing estate.
The attractive development makes a significant contribution to the local housing market and to the regeneration of the town.
Designed with sustainability and security in mind, Railway Terrace achieved Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 and Secured by Design accreditation.
