Barratt and David Wilson Homes Southern has announced that its two new developments in Oxfordshire will underpin approximately 1,000 jobs for local people.

The leading developer will bring a total of 240 new homes to its upcoming Chiltern Grange development on Watling Road in Benson, which is set to provide close to 480 local jobs throughout the development process.

Barratt and David Wilson Homes has also recently launched its latest development of 264 new homes at Abbey Fields, off Dunmore Road in Abingdon, which is set to underpin an additional 528 jobs for local people.

The housebuilder predominately employs local sub-contractors and tradesmen, including apprentices – so local businesses and people will benefit directly from the jobs.

Campbell Gregg, Managing Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes Southern, said: “Our new developments in Benson and Abingdon will provide much needed housing in the Oxfordshire area. This is also great news for the local economy with the local construction jobs underpinned by building the new homes.

“We aim to support local sub-contractors and tradesmen where possible to ensure the areas in which we build benefit directly from our developments.

“Our team at Barratt and David Wilson Homes are very much looking forward to helping people find the right homes for them at our now-open Abbey Fields development and upcoming Chiltern Grange development.”
