Yorkshire housebuilder Avant Homes is set to bring 150 high-quality, new-build homes to Micklefield, after receiving planning approval from Leeds City Council.
The £49.3m development, named Radford’s Meadow, will feature a collection of two, three and four-bedroom homes across 24 of Avant Homes’ high-quality house designs.
Radford’s Meadow, which is located 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.
Alongside providing 150 high-quality homes for the area, Avant Homes has also committed a community contribution of £1.1m towards local transport and infrastructure. Radford’s Meadow will also create 120 jobs across construction and sales.
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.”
Located on the edge of Micklefield, Radford’s Meadow is in an excellent location on the edge of the town centre, which is home to a range of local schools, supermarkets and eateries. While the A1(M) is just a 10-minute drive away, giving easy access to the rest of the region and beyond including Pontefract, Wetherby and Doncaster.
