Construction is now underway to create a new community of energy-efficient homes in Waverley, Sheffield.

Affinity, from Barratt Homes Yorkshire West, is an exciting new collection of energy-efficient one, two, three and four bedroom homes located in the growing, semi-rural community of Waverley.

Set in a lakeside location, homes at Affinity will offer stunning views surrounded by green open spaces, woodland and parks including Rother Valley Country Park. The new homes have been crafted with flexible living in mind, to encourage prospective customers, such as first time buyers and growing families, to create their dream home. The development will also benefit from a fantastic range of local amenities such as shops, pubs, restaurants and OFSTED-rated ‘Outstanding’ schools.

As the UK’s largest Homebuilder, Barratt Homes is dedicated to supporting the communities in which it builds, investing over £8.3million into physical infrastructure to fund environmental and highway improvements, affordable homes and community facilities in 2022 and £4 million into community infrastructure to support local schools and transport links. The Homebuilder also made over £23,300 of charitable donations last year, to support those in need across the West and South Yorkshire regions.


2022 also saw the Homebuilder reinforce its commitment to creating homes for nature as well as people. The business created 9 hectares of greenspace across the region, equivalent to 342 tennis courts, to help support wildlife on and around its developments. Its commitment to environmental sustainability also saw Barratt Developments reduce its CO2 emissions by 4% against its 2018 benchmark and reduce its construction waste by 37%.

David Coe, Land and Development Director at Barratt Developments Yorkshire West commented: “We are delighted to begin developing our new collection of homes at Affinity. Waverley is a growing community and our development will offer a fantastic selection of energy-efficient homes that are built to last and adapt to modern life.”

“We would encourage anyone who would like to find out more information about the calibre of homes available to contact our very helpful Sales Team for more information.”
