Yorkshire housebuilder to deliver “much-needed” £38.3m, 154-home development in Easingwold

Yorkshire housebuilder Avant Homes is moving forward with plans to deliver a £38.3m development in York following the acquisition of a 15-acre parcel of land in Easingwold.

The 154-home development received planning approval from Hambleton District Council in February 2022 and is set to be located on Husthwaite Road close to the A19, between York and Thirsk. The new homes will feature a mix of “high-quality”, two, three, four and five-bedroom homes across 15 of Avant Homes’ “signature” house designs.

Initial groundworks are due to commence in the coming weeks with the first homes set to go on sale this month. The showhome opening will follow in early autumn with the first residents expected to move into their new home at the end of 2022.

Of the 154 homes set to be built in Easingwold, 30 per cent have been designated to affordable housing. Alongside providing “high-quality” homes for the area, Avant Homes is also set to commit to a community contribution of £325k for local education provision for early years, primary and special educational needs schools.

Avant will also provide a sports pitch and car parking facilities for the adjacent Easingwold Community Primary School.

Avant Homes Yorkshire managing director, Alastair Hart, said: “We’re very pleased to have purchased this site in Easingwold to be able to move our plans forward to deliver 154 new-build homes for the area.

“Avant Homes Yorkshire has ambitious growth plans for 2022 to build much-needed housing in prime residential locations across the region. We’ve had a very strong start to the year and we look forward to initial groundworks commencing in Easingwold in the coming weeks.”

Based in Wakefield, Avant Homes Yorkshire is part of the Avant Homes group. The group currently has 55 developments across its five operating regions. Avant Homes Yorkshire currently has 10 developments under construction stretching from Glasshoughton in West Yorkshire to Waverley in the south of the region.
