The £32m development, called Martins Reach, will occupy 26.7 acres and is located off Russell Drive. 

Properties will be a mixture of innovatively designed homes including two and three-bedroom semi-detached and four and five-bedroom detached houses, all complete with the home builder’s new interior specification.

Avant Homes will also be delivering 182 allotment gardens, a play area and a nature reserve on the site for the local community to enjoy.

Avant Homes Midlands managing director, Glyn Mabey, said: “We are very pleased to have been granted planning permission on our new site at Wollaton. Our plans for Martins Reach were well received by the planning committee and we are keen to begin construction later this month.”

Nottingham City Council’s planning committee said it was impressed with the ‘detailed plans’ provided by Avant Homes, with some councillors saying they would ‘love to live at the development’ and describing the properties as ‘quite delightful’.

As well as providing much-needed, high quality family homes for the city, Avant Homes will also invest more than £580,000 in education, infrastructure and travel initiatives, as well as community projects.

Ann Taylor, associate director in the development team at Savills Nottingham acted on behalf of the landowners, Radford Bridge Road Garden Holders Association who will be retaining the allotments for use by current and new gardeners.

Commenting on the sale, she said: “This was a complicated but exciting venture jointly marketed with Hawksmoor, the landowner and the promoter, CEG. All parties involved are happy with the outcome and excited to see Avant's striking elevations become a reality, providing further quality new homes and supporting environment for this sought-after part of our city."

Located on the outskirts of Nottingham, the site benefits from excellent connections to Nottingham and the wider area with junctions 25 and 26 of the M1 motorway. The suburb is the perfect location for commuters, offering easy access to Nottingham city centre, as well as Derby and Leicester.
