National contractor Tolent has won a contract to build 32 new homes on the Windmill View development in Kirkbymoorside.

Working on behalf of an offshore fund and Cicero Estates, Tolent will create an exciting development of two, three and four bedroom detached, semi-detached and terraced homes.

The properties, which sit on land to the north of Wainds Field, not far from the centre of town, will be a mix of two and three storeys.

Jason Lewis, director at Cicero Estates, said: “Windmill View will offer modern, stylish homes in a very desirable North Yorkshire town. The scheme will provide a mix of housing types to suit all needs. We are looking forward to working with Tolent on this exciting development.”

This contract win marks a significant step forward for Tolent, who announced its intentions to expand further into the Yorkshire area last year.

“This is a very exciting project for us, for a multitude of reasons,” said regional director Chris Price.

“We have an exemplar track record for delivering quality housing projects across the North East, and it’s fantastic that we now have an opportunity to start and build this reputation across Yorkshire.

“We’re delighted to be working with all partners involved and have a great team on site who are eager to get started.”

The project is expected to complete early 2022.

Tolent has worked across the central region of the UK since 1990, delivering a variety of contracts from industrial, leisure and more recently student accommodation.

The team has recently handed over a new £12.5m student accommodation project on Burley Street in Leeds, Union and a new four-storey, 32-apartment development in York, Icona 1.
