Avant Homes granted planning for £33.8m, 150-development in Rushall, Walsall

Avant Homes West Midlands is set to deliver 150 new homes in Rushall, Walsall after being granted planning permission for a £33.8m development.

Called Pavilion Acres and located off Harden Road, the 12.7-acre development will include a mix of one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom homes. It will feature 12 of Avant Homes’ house types, with prices to be released at a later date.

Of the 150 homes, 25% have been designated to affordable housing. Avant Homes has also committed to a community contribution of £300,000 to support open spaces and special areas of conservation.

Work at Pavilion Acres is anticipated to start this month with the first residents expected to move into their new homes in April next year. 

Avant Homes West Midlands technical director, Mark Marsh, said:

“Rushall’s proximity to key motorway links and the town centre of Walsall means there is high demand for new homes in the area.

“Our development at Pavilion Acres will aim to satisfy this demand, so we are pleased our plans have been approved by Walsall Council.”

Avant Homes West Midlands currently has seven live developments ranging from Telford to Warwick with many more due to start as the business continues to implement its growth plans.

Avant Homes West Midlands is part of the Avant Homes Group, whose house types are ideal for the private, rented and affordable sectors, which operates across the Midlands, north of England and Scotland from nine regional operating businesses.

At present, the housebuilder employs more than 600 people with ambition to grow its multi-tenure business further across its existing regions and beyond, creating communities and providing employment opportunities for many.
