Communities minister Stephen Williams met a family at one of our developments in Cornwall to hear first-hand how Help to Buy had worked for them.
Mr Williams toured Home@Heartlands, in Redruth, where almost a third (30 per cent) of sales have been made through the government-backed scheme which helps people with deposits as low as five per cent climb the housing ladder.
He met the Czunys, a family who had been able to buy their first home, and also discussed on-site training opportunities with an apprentice. He found out more about the energy efficient new homes being built too.
Mr Williams said: “It was great to meet the Czunys family, who with thanks to Help to Buy are now in their new home, joining 53,000 fellow new homeowners across the country.
“Home@Heartlands shows that the scheme is gettingBritainbuilding, with housebuilders like Linden Homes building more sustainable and affordable housing, which is helping get many more people onto the property ladder as a direct result.”
Mr Williams was given a guided tour by Linden Homes’ regional managing director for the south west,Nigel Palmer. They discussed issues including apprenticeships, skills, and the use of local firms and labour.
