Weston-super-Mare development Locking Parklands up for first-time buyer award
LOCKING Parklands, the mixed-use development built on the former RAF Locking site in Weston-super-Mare, has been named as one of the top sites in the UK for those searching for their first home.
Built by regeneration specialist St Modwen Homes, Locking Parklands has been short listed in the Best Large Development category of the national First-Time Buyer Awards.
More than 50 per cent of the homes asold so far at the development have been bought by those moving into their first home. What's more, 95 per cent of these first-time buyers have benefited from using one of the purchaser schemes made available by St Modwen Homes.
Neil Simpson, sales and marketing director at St Modwen Homes, said: "First-time buyers have faced a real struggle since the property market crashed in 2007 and even recent statistics show that it will take many people looking to buy their first home a decade to save the required deposit. For a healthy property market to exist, we need to encourage purchases at all levels of the property ladder and we have ensured that this has remained a real focus for St Modwen Homes.
