Housebuilder Avant Homes has acquired a 14.7-acre site in the village of Carlton near Rothwell where it will deliver a £44m development of 129 new homes.
Located on Main Street close to Swithens Farm and Oulton Hall, the new development received planning approval from Leeds City Council in March 2022.
The company is also planning to contribute £1.9m towards local public transport, highways provision, an open green space, and a residential travel plan fund. Approximately 15% of the homes proposed will be dedicated to affordable housing.
Avant Homes Yorkshire, Managing Director, Alastair Hart, said: “There is a real demand for high-quality new-build homes in southwest Leeds and at Avant Homes we have a strong, ambitious growth strategy to meet the needs of today’s buyers.
“Carlton and Rothwell are sought-after locations and we are very pleased to have acquired this land to deliver a highly desirable development for buyers. We look forward to initial groundworks getting underway later this summer.”
Homes are expected to go on sale in in August with the showhome to follow in early 2023.
