The site has been a tremendous success. In terms of the Shared Ownership units, these were all reserved off-plan before the showhome was handed over. None of the purchasers have completed their sale yet as the first properties were only signed off as build complete on the 30th July 2019. However, feedback from buyers has been positive on the design and layout of the properties.
28 of the affordable rent properties are already occupied with the site due to be fully occupied by the end of August.
9 of the 10 Shared Ownership purchasers are already residing in the area so the objective of helping local people onto the housing ladder has proved to be a success.
What this has also highlighted is the partnership working between Onward Homes, Casey Group, Homes England and the Local Authority.
