Development contracts back out to tender

RUMOURS partly-built houses in Whitby’s Byland Road were going to be pulled down have been quashed by the developer.

Home Group told the Whitby Gazette yesterday that since the builders, Rok, went into administration, it had put the contracts back out to tender and the closing date was Monday.

It is hoped builders will be on site by the end of March.

A spokesperson said: “I’d like to reassure readers Home Group is fully committed to our new development at Byland Road.”
