Six Yorkshire housing associations have set out plans to build more than 1,500 homes over four years, as part of a multi-million pound framework.
The North Yorkshire-based framework, which could be worth up to £157m, includes potential housebuilding schemes by Broadacres Housing Association, Mulberry Homes Yorkshire, York Housing Association, Selby District Council, Selby and District Housing Trust and Yorkshire Coast Homes.
The framework is divided into three lots, with up to seven contractors appointed to each one.
Lot 1 includes projects valued up to £1m; Lot 2 includes projects valued between £1m and £3m; and Lot 3 includes projects worth more than £3m, according to OJEU documents.
It is expected that Lot 1 will be worth about £23m over the four-year framework period; Lot 2 will be valued at £55m; and Lot 3 will total £79m.
The housing associations plan to deliver a total of about 1,590 homes over the four-year framework.
Mulberry Homes Yorkshire will undertake the largest housebuilding programme under the framework, delivering more than 300 homes per year by 2018.
Between the framework partners, it is anticipated that 282 homes will be built in 2016, followed by 370 in 2017, 482 in 2018 and 455 in 2019.
Other major social housing frameworks set out in the past month include a £4bn plan to build homes across Central England and Wales over a four-year period.
