Peterborough landlord Cross Keys Homes has made a flying start to the new year with contracts signed for the construction of nearly 400 new homes in a number of separate schemes.

It has signed for five new schemes in the last month alone and is looking to see its development programme expand dramatically over the next couple of years.

It will provide nearly 400 much needed affordable homes in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, East Northamptonshire, Rutland and Kettering.

With the high cost of home ownership, in many cases stand still salaries, and nearly a third of those who are in private rented properties* struggling to pay for their home, affordable housing is needed more than ever before.

Cross Keys Homes says it is committed to ensuring that building many more new affordable homes is a key priority of their business plan and these planned schemes show how determined they are to ensure this is the case.

Cross Keys Homes’ chief executive, Claire Higgins, said: “We are committed to making a positive difference in Peterborough and the areas around and providing affordable homes that people on low and middle incomes can genuinely afford is a really critical part of our plans.

“We have a long term strategic development plan for new affordable house building supported by a strong business plan and sound funding which will ensure we are doing everything we can to build good quality affordable homes and delivering great services not only for today’s residents but also for future generations to come.”
