Avant Homes gets green light for £47.7m Killingworth development
Local housebuilder Avant Homes has been able to go ahead on a new £47.4m development after planning permission was granted by North Tyneside Council.
Located off the A1056 in Killingworth, the 20.86-acre development will feature 200 homes across Avant Homes’ design-led two, three, four and five-bedroom housetypes.
There will be 14 housetypes to choose from and 38 ‘affordable’ homes will also be included across the development.
Work on the development - named Cygnet Park - is set to commence immediately with the showhomes expected to open in March 2020. The first homes are due to be ready for occupation at this time, too.
The overall build is expected to take five years and will create approximately 100 sales and construction jobs.
