Land acquired to construct more than 50 homes

Avant Homes Yorkshire has acquired a 4.8-acre site in Cullingworth, near Keighley, to deliver 53 new-build homes with a gross development value (GDV) of £13.6m.

Located on New School Lane three miles from Keighley town centre, the development will comprise a mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes.

Called Croftside Quarter, the development received planning permission at the end of October, with the overall build programme estimated to take approximately two years.

The developer has also committed to a community contribution of £330,000 towards local education, highways improvements and biodiversity.

Work is set to start at the end of the year, with a showhome expected to open in spring 2023. The first homes are set to be ready for occupation in autumn next year.

Avant Homes Yorkshire managing director, Alastair Hart, said: “Croftside Quarter is an excellent opportunity to further expand our presence across the Bradford district while providing much-needed high quality new homes for the area.

“Cullingworth is a desirable village location in a prime position for access to Keighley, Halifax and Bradford city centre. We look forward to delivering Croftside Quarter to meet the locality’s strong demand for new-build homes.”

Avant Homes has also recently received planning permission to deliver 124 three and four-bedroom homes in Keighley at a development in Shann Lane called Odette’s Point which has a GDV of £33m.

Avant Homes Yorkshire currently has nine live developments ranging from Micklefield to Waverley.
