Gleeson has this week been granted permission to build 147 new homes off Horncastle Road in Wragby.
The vacant piece of land will become a mixture of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom semi and detached homes all with parking and gardens. Prices are anticipated to start from £119,995. The Government backed Help to Buy scheme will ensure that many of these homes will be cheaper to buy than local rent levels.
Wayne Sutton, Operations Director for East Yorkshire said “We’re delighted that we have been given the go ahead to develop the site. I think local people will be pleased to hear that our new homes are extremely affordable; we pride ourselves in helping young people to get onto the property ladder and into home ownership. The site is close to Lincoln where there are existing retail, leisure and employment facilities making the homes ideal for first time buyers and commuters.”
Following the approval of the planning application, we have agreed to make a significant contribution towards on-site affordable housing, local healthcare facilities and highways matters.
We are looking for local labour and sub-contractors to work on these exciting new homes, including applications from local young people who are interested in the Gleeson Apprenticeship Scheme.
Gleeson boasts a unique position in the housebuilding sector, building high quality, low cost homes, for people on low to medium incomes in the North and Midlands.
Gleeson homes are ideal for first-time buyers and when comparing the cost of mortgages with local rent prices, often fare considerably better and are sold at typically 20% below the average market price.
