Kent Messenger Maidstone - West Kent Property - - FRONT PAGE -

Just five self-build plots re­main for sale at Hamill Park, Wood­nes­bor­ough, near Sand­wich.

Prices start at £265,000 for the plots, which come with plan­ning per­mis­sion to build large fam­ily houses and have all ser­vices in place.

There are 19 plots at the site, the ma­jor­ity of which are now sold.

Mark Quinn, of de­vel­oper Quinn Es­tates, said: “There is a phe­nom­e­nal de­mand for sites like th­ese.”

The de­vel­oper re­ported a strong start to 2016 as de­mand for new homes con­tin­ues to im­prove.

The com­pany has sold 7,238 homes so far this year, with con­struc­tion due to start on an­other 100 de­vel­op­ments na­tion­wide, in­clud­ing Brom­ley, Min­s­teron-Sea and Ebb­s­fleet.

The firm’s pri­vate sale reser­va­tion rate is run­ning 4% ahead of the same pe­riod last year.

Per­sim­mon’s Tom Wright said: “Ne­go­ti­at­ing an exit from the Euro­pean Union could be a long and com­plex process and it is dif­fi­cult to pre­dict how and over what timetable this process will evolve.

“Against this back­ground, Per­sim­mon has a strong bal­ance sheet and a clear strat­egy and we re­main fo­cused on build­ing the new homes around the coun­try that Bri­tain needs.”
