Normanton residents help WDH celebrate their 75th ‘Homebuilder’ property

Published 8 April 2016

Local residents ventured out in the spring sunshine to help mark the completion of WDH’s 75th new-build property.

To celebrate the milestone the landlord’s in-house construction team, Homebuilder, recently hosted an event at Newlands Gardens where the house was built.  As part of the day their was an information stand, a ‘Lego house’ competition and members of the Homebuilder team on hand to talk to residents about how their homes were constructed.

The development’s newest tenant, 24-year-old Chloe Hartshorne, was presented with flowers outside her new home.
She said: “I am very impressed with the quality of our new home, it has been finished to such a high standard. I can’t wait to finish getting moved in and spend our first night here.”

Martyn Gorton, WDH’s Director for Investment, said: “As part of our plans to build much needed affordable housing we’re using our own tradespeople, who’ve done brilliantly to construct so many homes already. Thanks to our fantastic annual apprenticeship scheme and ongoing local recruitment activities we look forward to delivering more quality developments just like this one.”
