Esh Construction will take over work at Hob Stone which is located off Windsor Garth in York.
Work on the site is expected to recommenced later in July. Some of the properties are expected to be occupied before the end of the year.
18 months ago, the development met a lot of opposition when it was revealed that the Labour Council would almost double the number of houses to be built on the former school site.
Since then, progress has been very slow with growing concerns about the development’s impact on the neighbouring Hob Moor nature area as well as pressures on local transport systems
