Persimmon Homes

South Midlands team announces their partnership with Citizen

23 April 2024

Sonnet Park and Citizen

A range of high-quality new homes will help local people in housing need, following the completion of a project involving our South Midlands team and Citizen.

A number of new homes, developed by the South Midlands team at the Sonnet Park development in Stratford-upon-Avon, ranging from two to four bedrooms, have now been transferred to Citizen who will manage the homes as the developer’s housing association partner at the community in the Warwickshire town.

Alex Mackness, Development Project Manager at Citizen, said: “It’s fantastic news that homes have been handed over to us at Sonnet Park to help with the housing need in the area.

“At Citizen we are committed to working with our partners to make a positive difference to our customers and communities – and our partnership with Persimmon is an example of this.

“We’re looking forward to our customers moving into the homes at Sonnet Park and we hope they will be very happy living there.”

Russell Griffin, Managing Director at Persimmon Homes South Midlands, said: “Handing over a portion of our homes at Sonnet Park is the latest example of our successful partnership with Citizen, which is delivering much-needed new homes for local families.

“We’re continuing to work hard to prioritise quality and affordability for all our customers. As well as the homes which have now been transferred, the average price of a Persimmon home is 25% below the market average in England and Wales – extending the opportunity of home ownership to more local families.

“We’ll continue to work closely with our local partners to ensure our investment makes a positive difference to communities across the region.”
