Gleeson Homes approved to build new homes for local people in Pegswood

61 new homes on Butchers Lane in Pegswood

Northumberland based housebuilder Gleeson Homes has been given permission to build 61 new homes on Butchers Lane in Pegswood. The vacant piece of land will soon become a mixture of spacious 2, 3 and 4 bedroom semi and detached homes, anticipated to start from just £112,995.

Adrian Field, Operations Director for Gleeson Homes said:

We’re delighted that we have been given the go ahead to develop the site.  I think local people will be pleased to hear that our new 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 Council rent levels.

The housebuilder has agreed to make a significant contribution towards local health care, education and coastal modifications.  Gleeson is also 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 has recently been voted the most sustainable company in the UK, due to the housebuilder’s environmentally friendly material choices and practices such as gravel on driveways, commitment to Living Wage and their Community Matters Programme.  This includes 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.
