Avant Homes is set to build a further 144 new homes in Waverley, South Yorkshire, after planning permission was granted by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council for a £42.7m development.

The new, 13-acre development will feature high quality homes across a selection of Avant Homes' design-led two, three, four and five-bedroom housetypes. There will be 13 house designs to choose from and 17 per cent of the homes across the development will be affordable. 

It will be the third development at Waverley by Avant Homes and follows hot on the heels of previous sites Sorby Row and Sorby Village, which were launched in 2017.

Located off the Sheffield Parkway and just 10 minutes' drive from Sheffield and Rotherham, Waverley is being masterplanned by Harworth Group and is Yorkshire's largest ever brownfield mixed-use development. Once complete the 740-acre site will comprise up to 3,890 homes, shops, restaurants, a primary school, and leisure and community facilities including parks and 310-acres of green open space.

Avant Homes Yorkshire managing director, Chris Coley, said: "We're very pleased to have received planning permission to build a further 144 design-led homes at Waverley, which has become a very popular destination to live and work.  

"The development is thriving, showcasing brownfield regeneration at its best and we have had sustained success here over the past five years delivering almost 400 new homes in Waverley. Demand continues to be high for our design-led product and we are very much looking forward to work commencing on Sorby Park in the coming weeks."

Initial groundworks on the new development, named Sorby Park, is due to commence this month with the first homes expected to be ready for occupation in autumn 2021. The build at Sorby Park will take approximately two and a half years and is set to create 120 jobs across sales and construction.
