A visit to our Impact development in Somerset left a big impression with local MP Jacob Rees-Mogg.
Mr Rees-Mogg, who represents North East Somerset, was given a guided tour around our Western region’s superb collection of new homes at Midsomer Norton, near Bath.
He met technical director Tim Smale, sales director Sue Scholfield and members of the site team who showed him the progress being made at the development. They also discussed issues concerning the economy and the housebuilding industry.
Mr Rees-Mogg said: "I was pleased to have the opportunity to visit Impact and to see how Linden Homes is building properties that reflect the needs of the local community. I was also delighted to hear that many of the building materials are locally sourced.
“I was encouraged to hear that the Government’s recently announced new Help to Buy scheme has already had a positive effect on the housing market. There are some excellent examples here at Impact, of purchasers who otherwise might not be able to purchase a new home now looking forward to getting on or to moving up the property ladder thanks to this initiative.”
Sue Schofield added: “We are delighted that Mr Rees-Mogg was able to view our development at Midsomer Norton.
“We are extremely proud of this development which is becoming one of our fastest selling schemes.”
