A HOUSEBUILDING company has opened a new office in Penrith as it makes plans for new homes across Cumbria.

Gleeson Homes has moved into Redhills after the company agreed legal terms on a number of planning applications to build homes in the county.

John Blue, the company’s senior land manager, will oversee the Penrith office. He said: “Gleeson homes are priced to suit first-time buyers, helping them quit the rent trap and get on to the property ladder.

“Cumbria is a brand new area for Gleeson and we are looking for more land to purchase across the region.”
