Priti visits new homes site in Stanway
Priti Patel, the MP for Witham has visited the Charles Church property development Oakwood Meadows on London road, Stanway, (Friday, 11th October), escorted by Persimmon Home’s Chief Executive David Jenkinson, and the South-Eastern Regional Managing Director Martyn Clark. Persimmon Homes owns the Charles Church brand.
In a comprehensive tour, Priti was given a full briefing on the aims and objectives of the company on the Oakwood Meadows site, which consists of a range of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses, close to Colchester, with good transport links and all of which are eligible for a Help to Buy equity loan.
Commenting after the tour, Priti said: “We had a useful exchange of ideas and it was interesting to see their plans and discuss with them how quality developments can be built in a sensitive manner. We also talked about the importance of key infrastructure being put in place to support new development. Developers do contribute funds for local infrastructure and it is important to ensure that this money does find its way to where it is really needed, particularly as we are seeing such a dramatic increase in the population of Stanway.”
“My thanks to David and his team for taking the time to show me around.”
