Deputy Mayor Opens New Gleeson Homes Site in Skelmersdale

In one of their last duties as Deputy Mayor and Deputy Mayoress of West Lancashire, Councillor Noel Delaney and Mrs Ann Stubbert visited Gleeson’s Ashurst Park to launch the development of 45 brand new 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes.  Ashurst Park is in the ideal location of Ashurst, only a mile away from the centre of Skelmersdale.

The first phase of homes sold out in record time with homes on the next phase anticipated to start from £97,995.

Councillor Delaney and Mrs Stubbert, who became Mayor and Mayoress of West Lancashire on 16 May 2018, joined Gleeson’s Area Manager Tony Hancock and Sales Manager Simon Dicanio to mark the start of construction of the new homes.

Simon Dicanio explains, “Buyers are often surprised at the affordability of Gleeson homes.  Most buyers find that purchasing a new Gleeson Home is a cheaper than renting.  All our homes include a driveway and front and rear gardens and we also offer a range of schemes to assist first time buyers, such as the Government backed Help to Buy scheme.  Ashurst Park is perfect for buyers looking to live close to shops, schools and public transport links.”

On visiting the site Councillor Delaney commented, "I was delighted to officially start the development of the scheme which will bring more quality houses to Skelmersdale. This shows the confidence that housebuilders currently have in the town.”

MJ Gleeson has recently been voted the most sustainable company in the UK due to the housebuilder’s use of environmentally friendly materials such as gravel driveways, commitment to Living Wage and working closely with local communities in which they build through the Gleeson Community Matters scheme.

Tony Hancock, Area Manager at Gleeson Homes explains, “In addition to promoting home ownership to local young people and helping them to get out of the rent trap and onto the property ladder Gleeson is dedicated to making a difference in the community.  We provide job opportunities for local people and subcontractors, offer apprenticeship schemes and provide sponsorship for local junior sports teams.”

If you have a junior sports team in need of sponsorship or would like further details on the Apprenticeship Scheme, Gleeson would like to hear from you.

Gleeson’s Sales Office at Ashurst Park is open 7 days a week from 10am until 5pm.
