Planning granted for £20.5m, 70-home development in Rotherham


03 Aug 2022

Avant Homes is set to bring 70 homes to Rotherham, after planning permission was granted by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council for a new £20.7m development. 

Named  Brecks Lane Park, the 7.25-acre site is situated on Brecks Lane just three miles east of Rotherham town centre. The development will feature a selection of three and four-bedroom homes across eight of Avant's most popular house designs.  

Of the 70 new-build homes, 25 per cent have been designated to affordable housing with Avant Homes also committing to a community contribution of more than £220,000 towards local education and transport, including bus services and sustainable travel.  

Work is set to commence on the development in September, with the showhome expected to open at the end of March next year. The first homes are due to be ready for occupation in spring 2023.  

Overall, the development is expected to take two years to complete and will create hundreds of jobs.   

Avant Homes Yorkshire managing director, Alastair Hart, said: "We're very pleased that planning permission has been granted to deliver Brecks Lane Park, allowing us to bring 70 high-quality homes to Rotherham." 

Avant Homes' acquisition of Rotherham's Brecks Lane extends the housebuilder's existing presence in the town following years of success during the regeneration of Waverley.  

Previously, the housebuilder has acquired six parcels of land at Waverley delivering almost 400 homes including its current Sorby Park development, which is set to deliver 144 homes.  

Alastair added: "Rotherham is a thriving town and as we've seen with our previous developments in Waverley, there is a real demand for attainable, design-led homes for modern family living. We're excited to move forward with our plans on Brecks Lane with work set to start in in September."
