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 a 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.
