We have today unveiled 18 new homes on a former Keighley mill site.
Grove Mill, a former cotton-spinning business, has recently undergone a major redevelopment by Skipton Properties and is now home to over 400 new flats and houses.
We have already welcomed seven of the new residents. The remaining residents will collect their keys within the next week.
New resident Jessica Croft was thrilled to get her keys. She told us “I can’t believe this lovely new home is going to be mine.” Jessica added that, thanks to the enclosed yard around her new home, it would be the first time her children would have a safe, outside place in which to play.
Regional Housing Director Deborah Kelly said she was delighted for Accent to have the opportunity to own and manage the new homes. She added “sadly, our country is in a housing crisis with not enough quality, affordable homes to go around. This is why developments like these are so important and form such a vital part of any community. We are overjoyed to see this new community already starting to take shape.”
Grove Mill started life as a cotton-spinning business latterly owned by Robert Clough, a Worsted Spinner and Manufacturer employing over 500 people in the area. The new homes were built by Skipton Properties.
