Thousands of new homes are set to be built in Hampshire as Grainger have been given the green light to start work on the Newlands scheme.
Grainger has received planning approval from Winchester City Council and Havant Borough Council to build new homes at Waterlooville in Hampshire.
2,250 new homes will be built on the 211-hectare site in Waterlooville, with additional plans to build community facilities, shops, schools and a nursery. 40% of the homes will be affordable, with the aim to attract families to the area.
Work is expected to begin this Autumn, with the first phase of the development of 194 homes being designed by local firm ADAM Architecture.
The plans in Hampshire will likely create new jobs in the area for plumbing, electrical and gas contractors over the next few years.
Yesterday’s Budget for 2011 from Chancellor George Osborne gave a boost to new homes, as homeowners will be encouraged to get onto the property ladder with the new FirstBuy aid package, which will be cost around £250 million and create around 50,000 construction jobs.
