A three-year-old budding truck operator has been taken on as David Wilson Homes Southern’s youngest apprentice at its newest Basingstoke development Gillies Meadow.  

Adam Blackwell is being invited to the development at various stages of build to see how the homes are progressing and will get to ‘oversee’ the construction of plot 215.

He will be able to see the plot at foundation level, when the roof goes on and then once it has been completed.

As people are forced out to the suburbs, cities become less dynamic. Workers waste time on marathon, energy-sapping commutes. People from the regions cannot afford to move to cities where they might find work. Businesses cannot clear land to build. It is perhaps no coincidence that Britain’s growing housing crisis has coincided with stagnant productivity.

WDH's Event On 24 February Opens Door To Home Ownership

On 24 February at their show home at Royal Wells Park, Crofton, WDH is aiming to make home ownership affordable for first time buyers.

On offer is WDH’s affordable Shared Ownership scheme, a way for many to take their first steps on the property ladder.

Affordable housing schemes are more desirable than ever as recent research revealed the importance of owning a home for young adults. A Yorkshire Building Society study showed that on average, young people consider owning a property more important than career success, academic achievements, and even marriage.

Benefits of the scheme include smaller deposits, a quality modern home which is likely to increase in value, and the opportunity to purchase the full property when financially ready.

Development at Cross Street Point, Chatham

Chatham

Work at The Brook in Chatham is an outstanding example of urban regeneration combining three sites to form one community.

Since 2014, we’ve invested £11 million transforming the area by redeveloping three sites: Cross Street (due to be finished this Spring), Eldon Street and Cavalier Place.

The development was shortlisted last year for an Inside Housing Award as Best Regeneration Project outside London.

We demolished a sheltered housing block and office building to make way for one five-storey and three four-storey residential buildings with car parking and landscaping. The unified brick facade has been designed in reference to proportions and materials found in the historic buildings of Chatham.
