The City of York Housing Delivery Programme is developing homes on council owned sites across York. For this entry we are submitting three specific sites under the Programme: Duncombe Barracks, Burnholme and Ordnance Lane.

The ability to bring forward new housing in York has been constrained for years and this project is deserving of an award for the ambitious and direct approach taken by the local authority. New housing will come forward that not only meets need for market and affordable housing, but which enables people to live healthy and sustainable lifestyles.
