Land acquired for £30m, 141-home development in Holmewood


20 Feb 2022

Leading housebuilder Avant Homes has purchased a nine-acre parcel of land in Holmewood, Chesterfield where it will deliver a £30m development of 141 design-led homes. 

Located on Chesterfield Road southeast of the town centre, Avant Homes secured planning approval for the site from North Derbyshire District Council in December 2021.

Initial groundworks are due to commence in January with the first homes set to be launched for sale in early 2022 and the showhomes following shortly after in May 2022. The first residents are expected to move into their new homes in summer 2022 and, in total, the approximate build length of the development will be three and a half years creating up to 120 jobs in sales and constriction.

Named Alma Place, the development is set to include a mixture of one, two, three, four and five-bedroom properties across 14 of Avant Homes' contemporary apartment and house designs. The homes will range from a one-bedroom apartment to a five-bedroom detached house.

Of the 141 homes, 10 apartments will be designated to affordable housing. In addition to providing high-quality new-build homes, Avant Homes will commit a community contribution of £306,000 to local education.

Avant Homes Central managing director, Stuart Rowlands, said: "As a Holmewood-based business, we are very pleased to be playing a role in providing much-needed housing for local buyers close to our headquarters.

"We're always searching for excellent opportunities to build new homes that will benefit from an attractive location, and not only will Alma Place help to deliver our strategic growth plans for the region, but also appeal to a wide range of buyers."

Alma Place is situated just four miles from Chesterfield town centre, while on the doorstep of the Williamthorpe Nature Reserve, Alma Place is also well connected to major towns and cities around Chesterfield including Mansfield and Sheffield.
