Mayor Launches £10 million New Homes Development in Middlesbrough

Gleeson Homes was joined by the Mayor of Middlesbrough, David Budd and Middlesbrough Council Planning Officer Paul Clarke to launch the development of 86 brand new 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, with prices starting from £115,995.

The Mayor, David Budd and Paul Clarke joined Gleeson’s Regional Director Ed Alder and Sales Manager Natalie Bailey to mark the start of construction of the new homes at the £10 million project.

Natalie explains, “Buyers are often surprised at the affordability of Gleeson homes.  Mortgage repayments are cheaper than local rent levels.  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: Equity Loan Scheme.  Boro Park is perfect for buyers looking to live close to shops, schools and public transport links.”

On visiting the site David Budd commented, “I am delighted to see the construction of new homes in Middlesbrough.  I know Gleeson works 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.“

MJ Gleeson has 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 their Community Matters scheme.

Ed Alder, 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 Boro Park is open Thursday to Monday from 10am until 5pm.
