Wakefield East Urban Extension


Spawforths, on behalf of a group of landowners, secured planning permission for the first phase for a major urban extension to the East of Wakefield which will deliver 2,500 homes and a relief road.

The scheme will secure significant regeneration benefits both for the City and for the district as a whole. Wakefield East will deliver jobs, homes, community facilities and a new by-pass and has been allocated within the Local Plan.

Significantly, Spawforths identified the opportunity, masterplanned the scheme proposal and secured its allocation in the Wakefield Local Development Framework.

Spawforths have prepared a planning application, including an Environmental Impact Assessment, and secured planning permission for the first phase of the development, which will deliver 500 homes, open space and the first phase of the eastern relief road.
