Stop the Press - Scheme ready to Launch
18 December 2015
An exciting development of more than 80 new homes on the site of a former printing press in Peterborough is due to launch in the new year, it has been announced.
Building work is in full swing at a development of 86 new homes in Woodston, near Sugar Way.
The development is known as The Print Works in recognition of the site’s former use as the home of The Peterborough Telegraph’s printing press.
The homes are due to go on sale at the beginning of January, said Steven Allenby, director of sales and marketing at Persimmon Homes East Midlands.
Steven said: “We’ve had a very busy year and we have big plans for growth in 2016.
The Print Works will be one of the first new sites that we launch in the new year – and we’re confident that it will be very popular indeed.
We will have a mix of two, three and four bedroom homes in a range of stunning designs, with something to suit everyone.”
Steven said that acting fast and buying off-plan is the best way for people to ensure they can get their preferred plot.
“Buying this way is ideal because you can secure your preferred property and location within the development,” said Steven.
“Reserving at this stage means you can truly personalise your home by choosing from a range of fixtures and fittings such as kitchen units, flooring, tiles or accessories.
And it also means that you give yourself the maximum amount of time to get everything sorted, taking some of the stress out of moving home.”
Persimmon Homes has vowed to build 80,000 homes and create 1,000 jobs across Britain over the next five years. It is part of the Government’s drive to deliver 400,000 affordable new homes by the end of the decade, as announced by Chancellor George Osborne last week.
The Print Works will include 30 per cent of affordable homes.
Steven said: “The housing mix will serve the existing need for housing in the area, widen housing choice and provide the opportunity for more people to access the housing market in Peterborough.”
