Developer to build new homes in Kent


Monday 25th October 2010

New home developer Hillreed Homes has secured planning permission for three more new home development sites in Kent.

The housebuilder will be delighted to have secured the planning consent, after witnessing a spike in demand for its new homes in recent months.

In August the new home developer revealed a 64.7% rise on the number of visitors to their new home development sites, compared to the corresponding month in 2009. The housebuilder secured a reservation, on average, every two days.

Hillreed Homes has been granted permission to construct five detached houses in Kemsing, two semi-detached and six detached houses at Wigmore, along with three detached houses at Higham. Building work is scheduled to get underway within the next few weeks.

"Whilst we do not begin to pretend that the market is as good as it was two years ago, we have seen a steady trend of sales each week at our sites in Kent. This has enabled us to continue to expand our business and the number of sites made available to buyers, says Jo Richards, Marketing and Corporate Manager, Hillreed Homes.

Richards adds: "On many sites there are incentives to help all buyers move forward and in particular there are helpful aids for first time buyers who are keen to get on the property ladder."
