More than 300 new homes and a primary school are being built on land off Gateford.

Coun Jo White, cabinet member for economic development at Bassetlaw District Council, said: “Gateford Park is one of the biggest and most important developments in the Worksop area.

“New development creates much needed homes for our existing residents and creates opportunities for people wishing to move to Worksop and North Nottinghamshire.

“Supporting growth and business are two of the Council’s key priorities for the district and these objectives can only be met by attracting new residents and families with the development of new housing estates.

“This also goes hand in hand with unlocking new employment sites that create more jobs for local people.

“Worksop is a growing town and the council is working with developers and partners to allow all of these positive things to happen.”

Barratt Homes, David Wilson Homes and Jones Homes are completing the development.

Jan Ruston, sales director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “We are very excited to be building quality new homes at our highly anticipated development Gateford Park.

“As a five star housebuilder it is great for us to be providing new and modern homes that will be suitable for a range of different property seekers in this up and coming area of Worksop.”

Sam Wood, sales director at David Wilson Homes Yorkshire West, said: “This development has something for everyone whether it be people looking for their first home or a growing family looking for more space.”

Philippa Ingram, Jones Homes’ sales advisor, said: “The location of the development, combined with the stylish selection of new build homes, has certainly attracted high volumes of interest in Gateford Park. It is a true family development.”
