Yorkshire housebuilder Avant Homes is set to bring 150 new-build homes to Micklefield, after receiving planning approval from Leeds City Council.

The £49.3m development, named Radford’s Meadow, will feature two, three and four-bedroom homes.

Radford’s Meadow, which is on a 14-acre site on Micklefield’s Church Lane between Leeds and Pontefract, will see the first homes go on sale in June 2021 with the showhomes to follow in September.

The first homes are expected to complete ready for occupation this autumn and, in total, the build of the development will take approximately five years.

Approximately 15 per cent of the homes have been designated as affordable housing.

The developer has committed a community contribution of £1.1m towards local transport and infrastructure. Radford’s Meadow will also create 120 jobs across construction and sales.

Avant Homes Yorkshire managing director, Chris Coley, said: “Micklefield is a very appealing location, just six miles east of Leeds city centre, so we’re pleased to have received planning permission and now look forward to moving ahead with our plans.

“Initial groundworks are expected to get underway at Radford’s Meadow in a matter of weeks before we reveal the first homes for sale in June.”

Based in Wakefield, Avant Homes Yorkshire is part of the Avant Homes group. It currently has 11 developments under construction stretching from Green Hammerton in North Yorkshire to Waverley in South Yorkshire.
