Avant Homes has gained planning permission for a £42.7m development in Rotherham and will build a further 144 homes on Harworth Estates’ Waverley development. This Yorkshire homes-builder will work towards this development on the former Orgreave coal mining site.
The 13-acre development will feature 13 different house designs and 17% of them will be designated affordable. Besides, initial groundworks on the new Avant Homes development, named Sorby Park, are due to start in March.
The first homes are expected to be ready for occupying in autumn 2021. The construction will take approximately two and a half years and will create 120 jobs across sales and construction. This will be the third development at Waverley by Avant Homes.
The contractor had marked its construction works at sites Sorby Row and Sorby Village previously, which were launched in 2017. Avant Homes has seven other developments under construction across Yorkshire.
The 740-acre Waverley site will have 3,890 homes, shops, restaurants, a primary school, and leisure and community facilities
