£8.4 million contract agreed for 53 much needed new homes in Essex

Our New Homes subsidiary, Partner Construction, has strengthened its position as a leading place maker in the East of England after securing a contract to build 53 new homes in Walton on the Naze.

The £8.4 million 100% affordable development is the second project that will be delivered in close partnership with Flagship Homes (part of the Flagship Group), following on from 73 new homes in Necton, which started in April 2021.

Built on part of a former caravan park, the Walton on the Naze development features 7 Shared Ownership & 46 Social Rent properties providing a welcome housing boost to the local community. Partly funded by the Homes England Grant Programme, construction is scheduled to start in early June 2021 and is expected to be completed in summer 2023.

Frank Lincoln, Regional Managing Director at Partner Construction | New Homes, said: “I would like to thank everyone involved in getting this project through to this stage, and look forward to seeing construction progress. Working closely with Flagship Homes, we are going to provide the local area with much needed new homes and ensure that together we create a lasting boost to the community.”

Tony Tann, Managing Director of Flagship Homes, said: “We’re delighted to be working again with Partner Construction. This new development will create opportunities for people in Walton on the Naze to have access to new affordable homes. With the support of like-minded businesses, such as Partner Construction and grant funding from Homes England, this is another big step in helping us to fulfil our vision of solving the housing crisis in the East of England.”
