Plans to build 151 new homes on one of the most prestigious housing development sites in the region, Doncaster Rovers’ old ground Belle Vue, has been granted planning permission today (24 June).

The project, to be constructed by contractor Barratt Homes Yorkshire East, is designed to bring excellently designed and constructed homes to the people of Doncaster. The land is close to superb local amenities including a supermarket, leisure centre, cinema and new playground, as well as being on the doorstep of Doncaster’s world-class racecourse, home to the oldest classic horse race in the world, the St Leger.

Cabinet member for Housing, Councillor Chris Mills, said: ‘The Belle Vue re-development project has taken a lot of planning from the Council and Barratt Homes, and I am very pleased to see permission granted on the scheme. This project will add even more high quality housing to Doncaster, helping to improve an already thriving area.’

Belle Vue Football Ground was home to Doncaster Rovers from 1922 to 2006, when the club relocated to their current home, the Keepmoat Stadium. It was demolished following the move, and the ground has been vacant ever since. With the announcement of the plans to redevelop the area, another chapter in the proud history of this site is about to be written.

A Doncaster Rovers spokesperson said: ‘While the club moved from Belle Vue some time ago, it remains a spiritual home for many of our supporters. For that reason, it is great to see that the area is being used positively and is still benefitting Doncaster.’

Paul Newman, Managing Director of Barratt Yorkshire East said: ‘We are honoured to be involved in delivering a future for this important site. This development will provide new high quality family homes and hundreds of jobs through the construction phase. This site further cements our commitment to investing in Doncaster and the Town’s future.’

It is hoped that construction on the site will begin within the next six months.
