Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

A fac­tory which will make up to 1,000 homes ev­ery year has been given the green light.

The Berke­ley Group’s ap­pli­ca­tion has been ap­proved by Ebb­s­fleet De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion’s plan­ning com­mit­tee, to build a site and an of­fice build­ing on a 10-acre site in North­fleet.

The fac­tory will pro­duce fin­ished mod­ules, which are homes built in parts, com­plete with plumb­ing, electrics and in­ter­nal fin­ish­ing, in­clud­ing floor­ing and fit­tings that can be con­fig­ured to form new homes. The de­vel­op­ment will cre­ate up to 240 jobs that will in­clude op­por­tu­ni­ties for full-time, di­rect em­ploy­ment and train­ing for peo­ple. Ian Piper, chief ex­ec­u­tive of cor­po­ra­tion, said: “Modular con­struc­tion is help­ing to speed up the de­liv­ery of new homes and with Berke­ley recog­nised as one of the lead­ing de­vel­op­ers we are pleased it has cho­sen Ebb­s­fleet Gar­den City.”
