Leading homebuilder David Wilson Homes Southern has announced that its new sites launching in 2020 will underpin over 1,400 jobs for local people.
The Hungerford-based developer will bring a total of 718 new homes to its operational areas of Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Hampshire, which will underpin 1,436 local jobs throughout the development process.
David Wilson Homes Southern predominately employs local sub-contractors and tradesmen – so local businesses and people will benefit directly from the jobs.
The 718 properties being built by David Wilson Homes in 2020 is an increase from the 642 homes built by the developer in 2019.
Paul Crispin, managing director at David Wilson Homes Southern, 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 David Wilson Homes will take great satisfaction in helping more customers take their first or next step on the property ladder."
