Councillors Marjorie Chambers, Lynne Grimshaw and Bob Walkinshaw visited Gleeson’s Charlton Chase site, named after famous brothers Jack and Bobby Charlton, to launch the development of 51 brand new 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, which are now available to buy from £113,995.
The local councillors joined Gleeson’s Regional Director Adrian Field and Sales Manager Sarah Lock to mark the start of construction of the new homes.
Sarah 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. Charlton Chase is perfect for buyers looking to live close to shops, schools and public transport links.”
On visiting the site Councillor Lynne Grimshaw commented, “I am delighted to see the construction of new homes in Ashington. I know Gleeson work closely with the Local Authority to ensure homes are priced to suit local people and help those who are renting to get onto the property ladder whilst working with the local community throughout the build process.“
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.
Adrian Field, Regional Director 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 Charlton Chase is open Thursday to Monday from 10am until 5pm.
