We are determined to deliver a significant impact to the local area and aim to create a new sense of place with open spaces, park facilities and a new community centre for everyone to enjoy,” said Michael O’Farrell, Regional Managing Director at Keepmoat Homes.
“We have a great team on-board who are driven to deliver high-quality housing and by using modern methods of construction, the new homes will be designed to support a range of prospective homeowners, from first-time buyers to those looking to up-size, as well as providing a much needed provision of more affordable homes. The launch of our marketing suite and new, stylish show home next week will give potential homebuyers a chance to explore the development and view our high specification homes.”
