It was great to have the opportunity to have a look around some of the beautiful new family homes that are being built in Aylesham. The houses are selling like hot cakes, and it was wonderful to hear how much interest there has been in the development from local people.
Barratt Homes and Persimmon Homes are building 1,210 new homes, together with community facilities and improved transport links for the area. This is part of overall plans for an Aylesham Garden Village.
I met with the developers before being taken on a tour of the developments. It was good to get the chance to look around show homes, and to meet potential buyers.
Most of the homes in the first phase of the development have been sold off plan, highlighting how high demand is in the area. Around half of the homes are being sold as part of the Government's Help To Buy scheme. It was good to hear from potential buyers how Help To Buy has been instrumental in helping them get on the housing ladder.
More and more people in our area are feeling the benefit of owning their own home. The 1,210 new homes that are being built on these two sites alone are just one example of how Dover and Deal is again a community on the rise.
