Gleeson to build 57 new homes in Wigton

Gleeson Homes has been granted planning permission to build 57 new homes in Wigton, Cumbria.

The development, which will be known as Chimes Bank, will see the 5.12 site be transformed into two, three and four bedroom semi-detached and detached homes.

Kirk Thompson, Operations Director at Gleeson said: “We are thrilled to be commencing work in Wigton. 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 Chimes Bank, homeownership will become a reality for many.

“We are looking forward to working with the local community and we will be looking to employ a 65 strong workforce that mainly comprises of local labour, including apprentices, and contractors.” 

Construction at Chimes Bank will begin in Spring this year, with the development’s first releases expected in the Summer. Two show homes will open late Autumn and the first homeowners moving in by the end of the year.
