Gleeson Homes was joined by the Mayor of Sunderland, Councillor Lynda Scanlan at its Forge Court development on Neville Road in Pallion, to officially open the new show homes.
On looking around the show homes, Mayor of Sunderland, Councillor Lynda Scanlan commented, “I am very impressed with how affordable the homes are for local people. We are committed to supporting good quality housing developments that meet the needs of local people who want to own a home of their own.”
The 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes at Forge Court have proved so popular that people have been queuing overnight to reserve plots as they are released. The next phase of homes is now available with prices starting from £106,995. Lindsey Oliver, Sales Manager for Gleeson Homes said, “Our new homes are proving really popular with local people due to their affordable prices, which are often cheaper than local rent levels. All our houses 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. Forge Court is perfect for buyers looking to live close to shops, schools and other amenities.”
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.
In addition to promoting home ownership to local young people and helping them to get onto the property ladder Gleeson is dedicated to making a difference in the community, by providing job opportunities for local people, offering apprenticeship schemes and providing sponsorship for local junior sports teams.
The Sales Office and Show Homes at Forge Court are open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm.
