UP AND COMING

Wakefield Council is currently investing in various projects across the borough, including the Five Towns Regeneration scheme, which covers Castleford, Pontefract, Knottingley, Normanton and Featherstone. Its aim is to inspire and encourage new investment and development across the five towns.

Castleford is also benefiting from Wakefield Council’s Castleford Master Plan. This is pushing for the development of housing and employment land within the Castleford Housing Zone, which runs along the Aire River Corridor. With the support of government funding and private developers, it’s expected there will be an influx of new homes in Castleford.

Castleford has made a name for itself as a hub for retail and distribution over recent years, as well as an entertainment and shopping destination. This has largely been thanks to the Junction 32 complex and nearby Xscape.

Investment is continuing to benefit the town. Construction has recently finished on Europe’s largest processing and distribution centre for TJX Europe, which is expected to create 1,800 jobs. Plans are already underway for phase two of the development, which will include a 600,000 square foot warehouse.

A bespoke selling plan for homeowners

The Assisted Selling Plan is designed to help homeowners climb the property ladder. As part of the scheme, we will organise the sale of your existing home, making sure you receive the best possible price. This will allow you to reserve your new home with us.

We will create a personal selling plan, including a review of the property market in your area and an agreed sale price for your home based on two independent valuations. We will work closely with the nominated estate agent to arrange all viewings and enquiries. All offers will be presented to you, and our Customer Experience Manager will guide you through the negotiation process. 







Once you accept an offer we will track the sale of your home, while you start planning for your brand new one.
 
If your chosen home is ready within a four-month period, we may offer to buy your existing home in part exchange.
