Gloucestershire house developer sees highest number of reservations in almost 30 years

Newland Homes

Newland Homes is celebrating achieving the highest number of reservations in any January since the business formed in 1991.

The housebuilder currently has 10 developments across the South West, with up to five more set to open this year, including projects in Trowbridge, Barnstaple, Whitminster and Cheltenham.

Specialising in smaller sites, Newland Homes’ live developments range in size from 20 properties in Chipping Sodbury, South Gloucestershire, to 49 homes in Willersey Gloucestershire.

Gail Remnant, Associate Sales Director of Newland Homes, said: “During January 2019, we had the highest level of reservations we have seen since the business began.  We’re confident that this figure would have been even higher if we didn’t have the bad weather at the end of the month, which saw a quiet weekend across all of our sites.

“The post-Christmas lull, coupled with continued uncertainty around Brexit, has reportedly put buyers off moving forward with purchases of new homes as well as the second-hand market, however this is not the case for our new homes in the West.

“Our sites have seen a steady stream of visitors over the past few months, and visitors give us very positive feedback.”

This year is also predicted to be a busy one for Newland Homes too, with new developments opening soon as well as recent planning approvals which should see work start on site in the coming months.

Gail added: “The next few months will see the opening of our 21-home Barbican Walk development in Barnstaple, as well as our site on Bradley Road, Trowbridge, which will see 79 homes built on the former West Wiltshire District Council offices.

“We have a number of planning applications being progressed too, including a further site in Blunsdon, one in North Somerset and four more across Gloucestershire.”
