Mayor Launches £12 million New Homes Development in Halifax

Gleeson Homes was joined by the Mayor of Calderdale, Councillor Dot Foster, Councillor Stephanie Clarke and Councillor Lisa Lambert to launch the development of 98 brand new 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, with prices starting from £107,995.

The guests joined Gleeson’s Area Manager Rob Smith and Sales Manager Kay Lightfoot to mark the start of construction of the new homes in Halifax.

Kay 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 Scheme.  Hays Park is perfect for buyers looking to live close to shops, schools and public transport links.”

On visiting the site Councillor Foster commented, “I am delighted to see the construction of new homes in Halifax.  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 the Living Wage and working closely with local communities in which they build through their Community Matters scheme.

Rob Smith, 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 Hays Park is open Thursday to Monday from 10am until 5pm.
