Wentworth Grange is a prime development of three and four bedroom homes in Barnsley.  The houses are being built on the site of a former bus depot and will provide 145 new family homes for the area.

The number of affordable homes built across the country in the last year has dropped by 26 per cent and net housing supply is now at the lowest level since records began.

As the Shadow Housing Minister, Emma Reynolds has set out plans on how Labour will tackle the housing crisis by increasing the number of new homes built to at least 200,000 a year by 2020.
