Plymouth regeneration scheme to create new trades jobs
Barratt will be in charge of the £30 million redevelopment of the North Prospect area of Plymouth, which will see 250 new homes built in the next three years, as well as a further 60 properties refurbished in the city.
Barratt, who were chosen by Plymouth Community Homes to lead the project, will submit a planning application next month and work should begin early next year. Mike Knowles, programme director of regeneration at Plymouth Community Homes, believes Barratt are the right people for the job.
“We invested a lot of time in ensuring we got the right developer to do the best job possible for the people of North Prospect – and we believe Barratt will more than meet expectations.
We’re excited to have them on board, as we progress this hugely significant programme for local people.”
The redevelopment scheme is expected to create hundreds of trades jobs in the area and is the second major project this year to generate jobs in the area, as a £11.7 million housing project in Plymouth was approved earlier this year.
