Quartet of success for housebuilder

Persimmon Homes has secured a series of land deals that will pump more than £5m into local communities through Section 106 contributions.

Development by Persimmon Homes North West will see four new sites deliver almost 1,000 much needed new homes while directly supporting 357 construction jobs per year.

Karl Wiseman, Managing Director of Persimmon Homes North West, has heaped praise on the team behind the purchases and planning achievements.

He said: “It’s been a really challenging 12 months for everyone, but the collective achievement of the North West team in getting these deals over the line is fantastic, and I am immensely proud of everyone.”

As well as securing planning permission on the second phase of Shavington Park in Crewe, Persimmon has spent nearly £18m purchasing land in Anfield, Cheadle and Maghull.

The four sites are set to deliver 945 new homes, including 218 affordable properties, and bring in an estimated Gross Development Value of £157,700,000.

The developments will also see: • Council Tax (per year) - £1.3m • New Homes Bonus (over 4 years) - £4.064m • Direct Full Time construction jobs supported (per year) - 357 • Indirect and Induced FTE jobs supported (per year) - 487

Karl Wiseman added: “Continued investment across our region underpins our commitment to the creation of high-quality new homes in popular, residential locations that not only meet the needs of the housing market but also appeal to buyers.

“That journey begins with land and these latest acquisitions in Merseyside and Staffordshire clearly demonstrate our ambitious ongoing intentions.”
