Housing Minister Dominic Raab MP and leaders from six local authorities in Oxfordshire visited Heyford Park today to sign the first housing deal.
The housing deal will see the Government provide £215 million for new homes, affordable housing and infrastructure. A key milestone for housing in the region.
Dorchester Living CEO Paul Silver, Construction Director Justin Taylor and Sales and Marketing Director Jeanne Evett accompanied the dignitaries on a tour of the site – viewing a four bedroom showhome and some of the three bedroom properties ready for occupation.
Commenting Paul Silver, said:
“I was delighted to welcome our special visitors to Heyford Park on what is such a momentous occasion. We were proud to talk to them about our vision and plans for the future of Heyford Park and show them the quality of our new homes. We were also pleased to welcome a range of media, who attended the signing of the first housing deal in our new heritage centre. An exciting milestone for Oxfordshire and for us.
“Heyford Park is an exemplar development of community building and we are pleased this is being recognised on a national and regional level. We have been ground breaking on our schooling and affordable housing offer and we continue to grow, working closely with the community and surrounding parishes in what is the largest Neighbourhood Plan in the UK. This will ensure the development meets Oxfordshire’s residents’ goals in providing new homes and employment opportunities in a sensible way alongside appropriate infrastructure improvements.”
