Naming a housing development often falls within the job description of planning executives within the company, but a local house builder has involved one local school in a fantastic competition.

Naming a housing development often falls within the job description of planning executives within the company, but a local house builder has involved one local school in a fantastic competition.

Miller Homes, who will launch a new development in the village of Drighlington later this year, enlisted the help of Drighlington Primary School to create the name of a new exclusive site where 29 homes will be built.

"Children are always really creative and we had some fantastic names and creative images to choose from," said Sarah Whinfrey sales manager Miller Homes Yorkshire. "After much deliberation we are delighted to announce that our development in the village will be called 'The Brookes'.”

Morgan Dransfield, aged 10, was the lucky winner of the competition and received a book token in recognition of his efforts. Cleverly, Morgan has utilised local history in creating the name as it was the Brookes family who lived at the nearby Lumb Hall, an integral part of Drighlington's community history.

"We are pleased to have been approached by Miller Homes to name its new development and the children were all very enthusiastic," commented year 5 teacher Miss Gilbey. "Especially well done to Morgan who can now enjoy the small piece of history he has created in his home village which will last for years to come."

The Brookes on Whitehall Road will open later this year and will offer 29 two, three and four bedroom homes. It is ideally situated between the West Yorkshire cities of Leeds and Bradford and close to all local amenities.
