Developer Wates Residential has been appointed to build more than 100 houses on a site in Doncaster.
The properties will be built on Thompson Avenue and Dixon Road, located four miles from the town centre.
The development will comprise 106 new homes, including 86 for private sale and 20 affordable units.
The 86 private units will be marketed and sold by Wates, and will consist of 34 two-bed homes, 47 three-bed homes, four four-bed homes and a single bedroom home. The 20 affordable homes will be bungalows and will be built under a separate contract with Doncaster Council.
Work is scheduled to start on site imminently, and follows close collaboration between Wates, the council and St Leger Homes, the company which manages and operates Doncaster Council's social housing stock, to secure a future for the long-vacant development site.
Richard Shroll, managing director, Wates Residential North, said: "These new homes will continue the excellent work the council is undertaking across the borough, creating a mixture of housing that will provide a much needed boost for people in Doncaster that are looking to secure a home.
"Our team is set to start on site in the coming weeks, and we look forward to working closely with the surrounding communities during the project, ensuring that local people benefit from a host of training and employment opportunities throughout the build programme."
