From Tourism To Business To Housing - York Is The Place To Be!
20 Mar 2014

WITH York having been recently recognised as one of the UK’s top performing cities – where better to live or move to than a centre of economic growth and tourist importance?

A report published by the City of York Council reveals positive news when it comes to attracting new business and employment, and highlights strong links with the London economy.

It has also been ranked the fourth lowest in the UK when it comes to benefit claims.

In addition, Yorkshire currently holds third place ranking in the Lonely Planet’s guide of Top 10 regions in the world to visit.

And for those looking to share in the positive profile and success of the city, Linden Homes is continuing its offering of brand new homes for young professionals, families and first time time buyers.

Over the past 12 months, the award-winning house builder has completed sales on 89 homes at two developments located at Ouseacres, and in the heart of the city centre.

Many savvy customers snapped up their dream homes from plan at both developments, making them Linden Homes North region’s fastest selling sites to date.

And following the runaway success, Linden Homes is anticipating a similar story at its forthcoming Greenacre Paddock site, an exclusive and intimate development of eight fantastic homes.

Small but perfectly formed, Greenacre Paddock will provide a range of two, three, four and five bedroom homes just two miles from the centre of York.

Although work has yet to start on site at Westview Close, savvy home hunters can register their interest now – and be the first to reserve when the homes are released for sale.

Linden Homes sales director Steve Woomble said: “As a regional developer, it is fantastic for us to share in the success of York and Yorkshire in some way.

“The great news about economic growth and business opportunities can only have a positive effect on the housing situation – and for new homes in particular which can provide a wonderful platform on which to build a quality life in an excellent location.”
