Spades in the ground at 10-acre housing site

Avant Homes North East has started construction on a 10-acre site in Catterick, Richmondshire to deliver 135 new homes.

Located four miles from Richmond town centre on Cookson Way, the development will comprise a mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes.

Called Brompton Mews, the development received planning permission in August last year. The overall build programme is estimated to take approximately three years.

Of the 135 homes being built, 30% are affordable housing with eight dwellings to be affordable rented and 32 dwellings to be discount market sale.

Avant Homes has committed to a community contribution of more than £380,000 towards local education and recreation facilities. The first homes are set to be ready for occupation in June.

Avant Homes North East managing director, Don Anderson, said: “Brompton Mews is an exciting opportunity to extend our presence in the Richmondshire area, and we’re pleased to have commenced work to deliver 135 new homes for Catterick.

“We know there is demand for high-quality new-build homes in the local area, so we look forward to progressing with the development in the coming months.”

The Avant Homes Group currently operates across the Midlands, north of England and Scotland from eight regional operating businesses.

The housebuilder employs more than 600 people with ambitions to grow further across its existing regions and beyond.
