WDH celebrates 2,000 new homes

WDH has celebrated the completion of its 2000th new build home, handing over the keys and flowers to new tenant, Elizabeth Jacques.

The three bedroom property on The Gateway development in Wakefield was built by Avant Homes and marks a significant milestone for WDH.

The housing association has built or acquired 2,000 new homes since 2007 and has ambitious plans to provide an additional 600 properties per year by 2020.

By delivering new homes across the district, WDH can continue to provide high quality, affordable housing either for rent or for sale through its Shared Ownership scheme.

Elizabeth said: “I am in love with our new house! I never thought I would be able to live somewhere like this. Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity, we can’t wait to get settled and start our lives in our beautiful new home.”

Andy Hollings, WDH’s Development Manager, said: “Delivering our 2000th new home is a fantastic achievement and something that we are extremely proud of. Not only are we ensuring that WDH continues to grow, it means that the standard of homes that we provide is continually increasing. Seeing how happy Elizabeth was today makes what we do all the more rewarding.”
