Work begins at Wellington Park in Sunderland


15 Oct 2021

Avant Homes has started construction on a 17-acre site to bring a further 94 homes to Wellington Park.

The second phase of the Wellington Park development located on Riverside Road, northeast of the city centre, received planning approval from Sunderland City Council in January 2021. 

Wellington Park's new phase will feature a mixture of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes across a selection of 17 Avant Homes' signature housetypes. Once complete, Wellington Park will comprise 118 homes. 

The first phase of 24 homes at the development was delivered by private housebuilder Berkeley DeVeer which acquired Avant Homes in April this year. 

Avant Homes is expected to launch the new phase in October with the first homes estimated to be ready for occupation in March 2022. The approximate build length of the second phase expected to take around two years. 

In addition to providing high-quality homes in Sunderland, Avant Homes is also planning to contribute almost £325,000 towards local education and a children's play area. 

Avant Homes  North East, managing director, Jennifer Tupman, said: "We're very pleased to have works underway on this new phase of development at Wellington Park in Sunderland, contributing further to the provision of much-needed homes in this area and creating job opportunities for local people. 

"As a Sunderland-based business, we are hugely excited to be a part of this development and are  looking forward to seeing works progress over the coming months." 

Wellington Park will be the second development currently under construction in Sunderland for Avant Homes. The developer is also building 82 new homes at Lowry Park three miles away in Seaburn. 

Situated just two and a half miles from Sunderland city centre, the location provides excellent commuter links to Gateshead, Newcastle and South Shields, and is also ideally situated for local education and amenities.
