Gleeson welcome the Mayor and Mayoress of Boston to Saxon Grange

The Midlands team at Gleeson Homes has recently welcomed the Mayor and Mayoress of Boston to its Saxon Grange development.

The Mayor of Boston, Councillor Frank Pickett, was a self-employed builder for most of his working life and was delighted to lay a ceremonial brick on the foundations of the first plot to be built.

Councillor Frank Pickett, Mayor of Boston said: “This is the first time I’ve worn a suit whilst on a building site! We’re very pleased to hear that Gleeson is bringing truly affordable homes to Boston; my own son initially struggled to get on the property ladder and is now searching for a suitably sized, but competitively priced, home for his growing family.”

Allen Marshall, Operations Director for Gleeson Midlands said: “We are delighted to be bringing 85 fantastic new homes to Boston, an area which is new to us. It was a pleasure to welcome the Mayor and Mayoress of Boston to site and I was encouraged by their positivity and backing of the development.

“We pride ourselves on supporting the local community with our affordable homes and employing a workforce on site that will be made up of local labour and contractors. With our homes, we are determined to ensure that the housing market better serves young first-time buyers and families on low to average incomes.”

The average selling price for a Gleeson home is around £145,000, with Gleeson building traditional 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, primarily for first time buyers.

Saxon Grange in Boston is Gleeson’s first development in South Lincolnshire. It will comprise of 85 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes and the first homes are due to be released for sale imminently. The stunning new show homes and sales centre are expected to open in late-November and the first customers will move into their brand-new homes in early 2022.

A unique housebuilder, Gleeson builds high quality, affordable homes, for people that need them the most, in the areas that they want to live throughout the Midlands and North of the UK. . This development by Gleeson brings to the area a whole host of employment opportunities for local people, sub-contractors and young people looking to start an apprenticeship in construction.
