Planning granted for £28m, 113-home development in Birdwell

Development

19 Mar 2023

Avant Homes is set to deliver 113 new homes in Birdwell, near Barnsley, after being granted planning permission for a £28m development.

Located on Hay Green Lane between Tankersley and Birdwell, the 9-acre site was acquired by Avant Homes in January this year.  

Called Hay Green Park, the development will comprise a mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes and feature 12 of Avant Homes' house types. 

Of the 113 homes, 10 per cent have been designated to affordable housing. Avant Homes has also committed to a community contribution of around £970,000 to support local primary and secondary education, a sustainable travel plan and open green space. 

Work is set to commence on site in April, with the overall build programme estimated to take approximately two and a half years. The first homes should be ready for occupation by this November. 

Avant Homes West Yorkshire managing director, Alastair Hart, said: "Hay Green Park follows the success of our recently sold-out St Paul's Bank development in nearby Pilley.  

"We are committed to delivering our exciting range of new homes in excellent locations across South Yorkshire, and our development will bring much-needed new family homes to the area. We look forward to starting work in Birdwell in April."
