Construction of a 11.5 acre site in Desborough Northamptonshire has been started by house-builder Avant Homes.
There are plans to build 135 new homes on the new development named Viridian Meadows. Planning permission was granted by Kettering Borough Council in March this year.
It is anticipated that the first of these new homes will be released for sale by the autumn and ready to be occupied by the end of the year.
The estimated build time for the whole of the development will be three and a half years and will create employment opportunities in the area along with the Barton Point development in Kettering.
