13 Feb 2024

Avant Homes has secured its first mixed-use development site in the North West after exchanging contracts on 20-acres of land in Great Eccleston.

Subject to planning, Avant Homes will build 115 of its practically designed, energy efficient homes which will have a gross development value of £32m.

Called Oakview Quarter, the housebuilder’s mixed-use development will also benefit from a new primary school, medical centre and community centre as well as commercial and retail space.

Work on site is anticipated to start in April and the development will comprise a mix of two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes which will appeal to a wide range of customers at different price points.

Avant Homes acquired the site from Duchy Homes for an undisclosed sum with the benefit of a reserved matters planning permission and intends to submit a plot substitution application for its house types in March.

Operating from its North West office in Eccles, Salford, the company is considering further development opportunities within Greater Manchester, Staffordshire, Cheshire, Merseyside and Lancashire.

Avant Homes regional chairman, Mark Cook, said: “The North West presents us a with a great deal of opportunity to further implement our multi-tenure expansion strategy, so we are very pleased to have secured our first site in the region.

“Great Eccleston is an ideal location for us to deliver our inaugural North West mixed-use development. Oakview Quarter will allow us to showcase our range of attractive quality new homes, at a variety of price points, in an area that our customers want to live.

“We anticipate being able to start building our homes in April and contributing directly to the continued creation of a new and thriving community within Great Eccleston.”
