The housing development is close to the Advanced Manufacturing Park at Catcliffe, where the University of Sheffield, Rolls-Royce and Boeing have bases.

Barratt Homes, Taylor Wimpey and Harron Homes have already built 600 homes there over the last four years.

Avant plans to build a range of two to four bedroomed houses.
