Scunthorpe based housebuilder Gleeson Homes has received permission to build 60 houses at Margaret Street, Immingham on the site of the old resource centre which closed down several years ago and has recently been the target of vandals. The area is to be transformed into a mixture of brand new traditionally built 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, all with a garage or driveway and front and rear gardens with prices anticipated to start from £101,995.
Commenting on the decision Jason Lock, Area Manager for Gleeson Homes said “We’re delighted to have been given permission to develop the site. I am sure local people will be pleased to hear that our homes are extremely affordable. The Government backed Help to Buy scheme will ensure that many of these homes will be cheaper to buy than local rent levels.”
Gleeson are looking for reliable, reputable 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 have recently been voted the most sustainable company in the UK, due to the housebuilder’s environmentally friendly materials such as gravel on driveways, commitment to Living Wage and their Community Matters Programme. This involves inviting junior sports teams to apply for sponsorship, Design a Bedroom competitions at nearby schools and other initiatives in the local community such as the YourWatch scheme, Gleeson’s own online alternative to Neighbourhood Watch.
