Avant Homes submits plans for £20.4m, 83-home multi-tenure development in Altofts, near Wakefield


23 Jan 2024

Avant Homes West Yorkshire has submitted plans to deliver a £20.4m multi-tenure development comprising 83 new homes in the village of Altofts, near Wakefield.

Called Altofts Acres, the proposed six-acre development will be located off Wharfedale Drive and consist of one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom homes.

The development will feature 13 of Avant Homes’ practically designed, energy efficient house types and of the 83 properties, eight will be affordable.

If given the go ahead by Wakefield Metropolitan Borough Council, work is expected to start on site in June this year, with the first residents anticipated to move into their new homes in February 2025.

Avant Homes West Yorkshire managing director, Richard Hosie, said: “We want to provide quality new homes for everyone in popular locations where people want to live.

“Altofts is just such a place. It has a great sense of community and provides residents with easy access to local amenities, Wakefield city centre and the M62.

“We also know there is high demand from people living locally, or thinking of moving to the area, for the type of practically designed, energy efficient new homes that we build.

“Our intention is to build homes at a range of price points that will enable more people to make their next homeowning step a reality, whether a first-time buyer or a family.

“We now look forward to Wakefield Metropolitan Borough Council’s response to our submission.”
