The Glasshoughton project is a mixed development on a past colliery site at Castleford, near Wakefield that will provide 400 new homes and substantial employment at a number of commercial premises. A car supermarket has already opened, employing more than 30 staff. Homes England has acquired part of the site to build 160 homes that will include a high proportion of affordable homes.

Transport improvements we’re part-funding also include a network of new pathways to improve pedestrian and cycling access to local facilities and railway stations.

About the Growing Places Fund (LEP Loans)

The Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Growing Places Fund provides loan funding to kick-start stalled development or infrastructure projects that will create homes, jobs and other economic benefits in Leeds City Region. The initial £35.5m Growing Places Fund investment was provided by Government in 2012, specifically to invest in development schemes that are unable to proceed due to a lack of commercial finance.
