Plans move forward for £26m 140-home development in Doncaster creating 120 jobs


20 Dec 2020

Avant Homes Yorkshire has been given the go-head for a new £25.7m, 140-home development in Doncaster, after planning permission was granted by Doncaster Council.

The 9-acre site is located just off Hayfield Lane in Auckley and will transform an area previously used as a sports and recreational facility at the former RAF Finningley airbase.

More than 120 jobs are expected to be created by the development, set to be named Torneley Quarter. 

It is anticipated that the first homes will to be ready for occupation by summer 2021, with the overall build expected to take around three years to complete. Initial works are due to commence in January, with the showhomes to follow in June. 

Avant Homes plans to deliver a comprehensive mix of highly desirable two, three and four-bedroom design-led homes across a combination of semi-detached and detached properties. The development will feature nine of Avant's signature housetypes all benefitting from the housebuilder's latest enhanced specification. 

Of the 140 homes at Torneley Quarter, 36 have been designated as affordable housing. Alongside providing high quality homes for the area, Avant Homes will also commit to a community contribution of more than £400,000 to local education and transport. 

Avant Homes  Yorkshire  Managing Director, Chris Coley, said: "We are very pleased to have secured planning permission for Torneley Quarter, following completion of the land purchase earlier this year. 

"The development is in a great location, close to Auckley, and just 15 minutes from the centre of  Doncaster. With plenty of amenities nearby, it's a highly attractive location for homebuyers to live. 

We've experienced first-hand from our nearby Furlong Park development that there is a real demand for quality, design-led homes in and around  Doncaster  and we are looking forward to getting initial groundworks at Torneley Quarter underway before the end of the year.
