Avant Homes begin work on 65-home development, creating 200 jobs

North East housebuilder Avant Homes has started construction on a 10-acre site in Ingleby Barwick, Stockton-on-Tees to deliver a £24m, 65-home development.

The first phase of the new development located on Round Hill Avenue, three miles from Thornaby town centre, received planning approval from Stockton Council in March 2021 before Avant Homes acquired the site in October 2021.

The first collection of homes will feature 23 new-build properties across a mixture of three, four and five-bedroom family homes. Once complete, the development, which is set to be named Copper Gardens will comprise 65 homes across a selection of nine Avant Homes’ signature house types.

It is estimated that the first homes will be released for sale in June and be ready for occupation in late summer. The approximate build length of the development is expected to take around two years and is expected to create up to 200 jobs.

In addition to providing high-quality homes in Ingleby Barwick, Avant Homes is providing a community contribution of £300,000 towards a local heritage park, open green space and off-site affordable housing provision.

Avant Homes North East, managing director, Don Anderson, said:

“We’re very pleased to have works underway on the first phase of this new development in Ingleby Barwick. The development will make a great addition to the area contributing further to the provision of much-needed family homes in Stockton-on-Tees and creating job opportunities for local people.

We are hugely excited to get started and are looking forward to seeing works progress quickly in the coming months.”

Situated just three miles from Thornaby town centre, the location provides excellent commuter links to Middlesbrough and Darlington, and is also ideally situated for local education and amenities.

The 65-home development is the second site currently under construction in Stockton-On-Tees by Avant Homes. The developer is also building 321 new homes at Summerville Village close to Durham Road, a few miles from the town centre.

Based in Sunderland, Avant Homes North East is part of the Avant Homes group, one of the leading private developers of residential property in the UK. The group currently has 55 developments across its five operating regions

Avant Homes North East currently has 13 developments under construction stretching from North Tyneside to Stockton-On-Tees.
