Yorkshire homebuilder Avant Homes has enhanced its commitment to Sheffield City Region with the securing of a second parcel of land at Waverley in Rotherham – its fourth land acquisition in South Yorkshire in the last 12 months.
The homebuilder has exchanged contracts with owners Harworth Group plc for the 14.06-acre site and has submitted a planning application to build a mix of 220 three- and four-bedroom properties, alongside the 61 family homes currently under construction at its Sorby Row development.
Elsewhere works are also underway on 39 homes at Heartwood and 62 homes at The Brickworks – two developments in the village of Stannington in Sheffield. With a combined value of £101m, the four new sites will bring a total of 382 homes to the Sheffield City Region once completed.
Avant Homes Yorkshire Managing Director Rob Slocombe said: “We are on a fast-moving upwards trajectory and the south of the region is a key focus for us. The last 12 months have seen high demand for our product here and the decision to purchase further land at Waverley demonstrates our dedication to investing in Sheffield, Rotherham and beyond.
The masterplan for the 740-acre Waverley site includes a planned 3,890 new homes (with 750 already built) alongside the Advanced Manufacturing Park and a planned local centre including a range of retail and community facilities.
