Work to begin on new affordable housing development in Ramsey
07 August 2020
Longhurst Group is delighted to announce that work is about to begin on a development of more than 50 new affordable homes in the market town of Ramsey.
We are delivering a total of 52 homes on a new site on St Mary’s Road, in partnership with Seagate Homes.
Work to clear the site is now taking place, with the development expected to be complete by 2022.
A total of 29 homes will be available for social rent, with 13 offered for Shared Ownership and a further 10 made available through the Rent to Buy scheme – a Government initiative that eases the transition of renting to buying a home.
The project is being delivered with the support of Huntingdonshire District Council and grant funding through our strategic partnership with Homes England.
Director of Development and Sales, Nick Worboys, said: “We’re delighted to be starting work on this exciting development, which will deliver much-needed affordable housing in Ramsey.
“Our vision at Longhurst Group is to improve the lives of our customers and communities and by delivering developments like this, providing the homes people need, where they need them most, is a brilliant example of how we do that.
“It has taken a lot of effort from all parties to get to the point where we’re starting work on site and so my thanks go to everyone involved, including our development partners Seagate Homes as well as Minster Property Group, Homes England and Huntingdonshire District Council, who have been fantastic supporters of this project from the outset.
Our vision at Longhurst Group is to improve the lives of our customers and communities and by delivering developments like this, providing the homes people need, where they need them most, is a brilliant example of how we do that.
“We’re now very much looking forward to seeing these highly-anticipated new homes take shape over the next weeks and months as we bring this development to fruition.”
Seagate Homes Group’s Construction Manager, Paul Coleman, added: “We are extremely excited to be working in partnership with Longhurst Group to deliver this much needed development of affordable housing to the community of Ramsey.
“We are looking forward to commencing work very soon and to seeing the project through to fruition, delivering homes to be proud of.”
