Housebuilder expands

Persimmon Homes has vowed to build hundreds of homes in Nottinghamshire after opening its new business in the county.

The company has launched its 29th region in Britain, with its new Persimmon Homes Nottingham headquarters in Mansfield. This will bring new homes to towns where they are needed, said managing director Neil Follows.

Up to 40 new office jobs have been created as a result of the opening of the new headquarters, in addition to site staff and suppliers.

The company has homes for sale at Newark-on-Trent, Retford, Hucknall, Lincoln, Sleaford and Clipstone but plan to build over 500 new homes in the region in the next few years.

“There will be genuine benefits for the communities in which we work,” Neil said. “This includes significant contributions towards education, new roads and healthcare to name but a few.”

Charities and community groups in Nottingham will be able to benefit from the housebuilder’s Community Champions scheme. Persimmon Homes Nottingham has £24,000 set aside to hand out over the next 12 months.
