Located on Main Street close to Swithens Farm and Oulton Hall, the new development received planning approval from Leeds City Council in March 2022.

The statement added: "In addition to providing high-quality homes in Carlton, Avant Homes is also planning to contribute £1.9m towards local public transport, highways provision, an open green space, and a residential travel plan fund. Approximately 15 per cent of the homes proposed will be dedicated to affordable housing."

Work is expected to start on the site in Carlton this summer with the development set to include a mixture of one, three, four and five-bedroom homes across 14 house designs.
