Barratt and David Wilson Homes Eastern Counties has announced that its new sites launching in 2020 will underpin 1,280 jobs for local people.

The Chelmsford-based developer will bring a total of 640 new homes to its operational areas of Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, which will underpin 1,280 local jobs throughout the development process.

Barratt and David Wilson Homes Eastern Counties predominately employs local sub-contractors and tradesmen – so local businesses and people will benefit directly from the jobs.

The 640 properties being built in 2020 is an increase from the 605 homes built by the developer in 2019.

Mark Cotes, Managing Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes Eastern Counties, said: “Our new developments will provide much-needed housing in these areas. This is also good news for the local economy with the local construction jobs underpinned by building the new homes.

“We aim to support local sub-contractors and tradesmen where possible to ensure the areas in which we build benefit directly from our developments.

“We’re looking forward to an exciting year as 2020 progresses, and our growing team at Barratt and David Wilson Homes will take great satisfaction in helping more customers take their first or next step on the property ladder.”
