Highfield Road, Askern

Status Planning: Approved






ESH Group approached the team at Collaborate Land to identify a site and negotiate the purchase of the land for a seven-acre placemaking development in Askern, a community town in Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Full project support was needed to secure the land, take it through the planning process and unlock its full potential.


As well as securing the land and planning, we needed to find the right collaborators to ensure we could deliver the proposal of 54 affordable homes, 12 bungalows and a three-storey retirement living building containing 60 apartments. The development needed to meet an identified housing need in the district, and the retirement living requirements of an ageing population.



The Numbers

Together Housing

  • 58 houses
  • 10 bungalows

Housing 21

  • 58 apartments
  • 2 bungalows



Due to our close working relationship with Collaborate Land and our clients, H21 and THG, we were able to successfully achieve the planning for this scheme. It was a great team effort from all involved and work commenced on site in 2021.
