Hay Green Park, between Tankersley and Birdwell, will see 113 homes built on a nine-acre site acquired by Avant in January.  

The development will have two, three and four-bed homes – 10% of which are affordable.

Avant has committed to a community contribution of around £970,000 for local primary and secondary education, a sustainable travel plan and green space. 


Work is set to commence on site in April, with the overall build programme estimated to take around two and a half years.  

The first batch should be ready by November. 

Avant was asked to confirm which construction and civils firms it has appointed.
