Avant Homes has purchased 15-acres of land to deliver a £43m development of 187 design-led homes in Retford, Nottinghamshire.

Located on North Road on the edge of Retford, Avant Homes secured planning approval from Bassetlaw District Council in March 2021. The new development will form part of the council's proposed  Trinity Farm Urban Extension to deliver a minimum of 440 new homes as part of a mixed-use neighbourhood.

Named Trinity Fields, the development is set to include a mixture of two, three and four-bedroom properties across 18 of Avant Homes' contemporary housetypes. The homes will range from a two-bedroom mid-terrace house to a four-bedroom detached property.

Initial groundworks are due to commence in April with the first homes set to be launched for sale in May and the showhomes following shortly after in October 2021. The first residents are expected to move into their new homes at the start of 2022 and, in total, the approximate build length of the development will be four years.

Of the 187 homes, 25 per cent will be designated to affordable housing. In addition to providing high-quality new-build homes, Avant Homes will commit a community contribution of £826,000 to local education, public transport, an open green space, and a library.

Avant Homes Central managing director, Stuart Rowlands, said: "We're always searching for excellent land opportunities in the region and the new Trinity Fields development will become a landmark development in our portfolio.

"Trinity Fields will form part of the Trinity Farm Urban Extension Local Plan with Bassetlaw District Council, so we're pleased to have secured planning approval and now acquired this parcel of land, and we look forward to moving our plans forward by starting initial groundworks in Retford in April 2021."

Trinity Fields is situated just two miles from Retford town centre which has an abundance of schools, supermarkets, and restaurants, while on the doorstep is Idle Valley Nature Reserve, giving residents a semi-rural lifestyle. The development is also located within easy ready of some of the Midlands' major towns and cities including Worksop and Lincoln.
