“We are committed to building more than homes and making sure that we add social, economic and environmental value to the wider communities that we operate in. This includes supporting over 160 jobs per year of construction, as well as the attraction of new customers to local businesses from those who choose to live in one of the new homes.

“Starting this development will allow us to provide continuity of build from our existing development at Greenlaw Mill, and continue to deliver on a range of economic benefits for the local area including our contributions of over £4.6 million towards improvements to education, community facilities, sporting provision and transport upgrades.”
