Construction is underway at Chaucer’s Green, Elliott Place and Radford’s Meadow with works at Ambretone Park due to start this summer. The first homes at all four developments are expected to be ready for occupation later this year.

Avant plans to create 400 more jobs.

Avant Homes Yorkshire managing director, Chris Coley, said: “We’ve seen great success across sites in Barnsley and Doncaster that we launched at the beginning of 2021, so we’re pleased to be extending our presence across the Yorkshire region with a further four new developments.

“The launch of these sites demonstrates our continued commitment to providing much-needed, design-led homes in desirable locations in Yorkshire. The first homes are now on sale at three of these developments, and we are already seeing high demand from potential purchasers who are attracted by our innovatively designed homes and product.”

Avant Homes Yorkshire currently has 11 developments under construction.
