Avant Homes Reveals Plans for £65m Yorkshire Schemes

Housebuilding firm Avant Homes has unveiled plans for two new developments in Yorkshire with a combined value of £65 million.

The new homes developer has purchased a 16 acre site in Stamford Bridge, near York, where it will begin working on the construction of 120 homes this month.

Work on a 9.8 acre development in Apperley Bridge, West Yorkshire, is already underway.

The £31 million Stamford Bridge development is situated off Roman Road and will be made up of a collection of three, four and five bedroom town houses, semi-detached and detached homes. The first homes are set to be finished by March next year.

Site clearance and ground remodelling works are in progress at both sites with construction of the first plots expected to commence this month.

Mark Mitchell, Avant Homes’ Yorkshire managing director, said: “We are very pleased to reveal our plans for these new developments, both of which present buyers with the opportunity to purchase our high quality product in two very desirable areas.

“Works have begun in earnest to prepare for construction and we expect many of the homes on the first phases to sell off-plan.

“Our second development in Apperley Bridge follows the exceptional success of our Apperley Green site, which has been our most popular development in 2016, with sales rates far exceeding expectations.

“Stamford Bridge will be our first development in York since 2014.”

Based in Wakefield, Avant Homes Yorkshire is an operating company of the Avant Homes group.

Earlier in the month it was revealed that Avant Homes revenue has reached the £160 million mark in its results for the first half of the year.

Revenue from April to October 2016 increased to £160m compared to £112m from the previous comparable period.

Avant Homes financial director Giles Sharp said the increase in the group’s revenue was mainly due to growth in housing completions and an increase in the average selling price of its homes.
