Building works begin on 600 home development

Housebuilder Avant Homes has started construction on the first phase of its £137m, 600 home multi-tenure development in Edenthorpe, Doncaster.

Called Eden Fields and located off the A630 on Mere Lane, the 81-acre site will comprise a mix of one, two, three, four and five-bedroom homes.

The first phase will comprise 248 homes, of which 27 have been designated as affordable housing.

Avant Homes is also committed to a community contribution of around £3.8m to support local primary and secondary education, a sustainable travel plan and open green space.

As part of the development, there will be a large recreation zone, including a turfed football area, basketball court and adventure play area.

The first homes should be released for sale in September and the first residents are expected to move into the homes in spring 2025.

Eden Fields will be delivered by Avant Homes West Yorkshire. The operating company’s managing director, Richard Hosie, said: “As a business, we want to provide quality new homes for everyone and Eden Fields will be a fine example of us delivering on that promise.

“There’s high demand in Edenthorpe for new homes which appeal to a diverse range of prospective buyers due to the area’s proximity to amenities, transport links and Doncaster city centre.

“We are now well underway building a range of multi-tenure homes that are ideal for all types of buyers, whether first time, second steppers, families or downsizers, and are busily creating a new community within Edenthorpe.”
