The development for Dewsbury Riverside builds on earlier studies with the main aim of delivering regeneration and urban renaissance through the delivery of a sufficient quantity of housing to generate transformational change. The scheme initially includes 2500 dwellings, local centre, primary school, green link to local tram station constructed over a 15-year period with the opportunity to develop a further 1,500 dwellings within 30 years.
The delivery and regeneration ambitions for Dewsbury Riverside are progressing with two early phases. The schemes are for 120 dwellings each (240 in total) and are located at Lees Hall Road and Ravensthorpe Road and were granted outline planning permission on 12 April 2017. Both schemes are able to come forward immediately and deliver an early first phase of housing, which will start to open the site and enable the housing-led regeneration of the wider area.
The aims are to drive forward the economy in the region, enhance the residential offer, regenerate the Town Centre, improve the environment, create excellent transport connectivity and improved access to employment opportunities.
Phase 1 Infrastructure Scope of Services include Highways, Earthworks and Geological Modelling.
