Cross Keys’ chief executive Claire Higgins, chair Angus Kennedy, and leader of Peterborough City Council, Councillor Marco Cereste, popped into see Mazalie a fortnight ago to see how she liked her new home.
Mazalie said: “I am delighted with my brand new chalet bungalow and can’t thank Cross Keys Homes enough. It has given me and my family stability and it’s somewhere where we really enjoy living.”
Cross Keys, in Shrewsbury Avenue, Peterborough, has built the majority of the 1,000 homes in the city with some in the surrounding areas.
Claire said: “The great milestone of our 1,000th brand new home means such a lot to us but it is only the start of our ambitious development plans to ensure we provide a great mix of affordable homes in our city.
“It was a pleasure to meet Ms Jones and I wish her all the very best for every happiness in her new home.”
Angus added: “This is an exciting time for everyone at Cross Keys Homes and I am really enthusiastic about moving forward with our future development plans which will see over 500 new homes built per year by 2018.
“We are committed to making a positive difference in Peterborough and the surrounding areas by providing good quality affordable homes that people on low and middle incomes can genuinely afford.”
