Gleeson Homes has been granted planning permission to build 39 new homes off Abbey Road, in Abbeytown, Cumbria.
The development, which will be known as Barley Meadows, will see the 4.57 acre area of land be transformed into 2, 3 and 4 bedroom semi-detached and detached homes.
Kirk Thompson, Operations Director at Gleeson said: “We are thrilled to be commencing work in Abbeytown. We are committed to ensuring that the housing market better serves young first time buyers and families on low to average incomes and with several buying schemes to be made available at Barley Meadows, homeownership will become a reality for many.
“We are looking forward to working with the local community and we will be employing a workforce that mainly comprises of local labour, including apprentices, and contractors.”
