Glen Heads Up New Community In Okehampton
02 Nov 2012

Work on new homes off Exeter Road in Okehampton has commenced this week. The finalised scheme will comprise a mixture of 234 two, three and four bedroom homes for the local community.

Linden Homes’ second development in Okehampton will bring a new link road, public recreational areas, including children play areas and nature reserves to the town.

Site manager Glen Hilton, 31, grew up in Lydford, near Okehampton. Having started as an apprentice carpenter with Linden Homes 14 years ago, he went on to train at Plymouth College in Site Management, with support from the developer.

Glen and his production team will expect to recruit up to 120 tradesmen, with the majority being sourced from the local area for the duration of the project that is expected to be complete in winter 2018.

“Ours is very much a people business and I’m looking forward to bringing new life to the town that benefits an area that I’ve grown up in.

We will strive to ensure that all works are carried out with due respect residents, as site neighbours, and aim to complete as efficiently and swiftly as possible. We intend to keep residents informed of the works. If you would like to speak to us about any matters regarding the scheme’s construction, or require any more information, please get in touch by mailing or calling 01837 52724.”
