YORK: Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust is seeking contractors for next phases of its Derwenthorpe eco-village on the outskirts of York.

Rowntree is considering whether to break the £90m deal into three smaller projects of around 100-plus homes or seek a single developer.

The initial phase of the scheme at Osbaldwick have seen more than 64 homes built. Three remaining phases to be built out are the Temple Avenue, Fifth Avenue and Meadlands Quarters.

Construction work is expected to get underway next Spring.
