Following occupation of the first home during Christmas 2012, there are now over 1,000 families living at Waverley. A range of quality homes has been built by Avant, Taylor Wimpey, Barratt Homes and Harron Homes. Sky-House – a modern re-imagining of Victorian ‘back-to-back’ terraced homes with sky gardens – are also building 44 uniquely designed homes. The current phase of c.500 new homes is currently under construction with a further phase for the delivery of c.300 units released in Summer 2020.
The site is currently expanding at a rate of around 150 homes per year with strong sales reported by all housebuilders, reflecting the popularity of the site and the speed at which Harworth has made land available. This has created the birth of a new community and once fully built out over the next 10 years, will see a bustling population of around 9,000 people living in a green and attractive lakeside development.
As part of the wider masterplan, Harworth also recently delivered a new primary school in partnership with Rotherham Borough Council, which opened for its first term in Autumn 2020.
