Showhomes at the sites will be opened this summer and the Government’s Help to Buy scheme, which means purchasers only have to find a five per cent deposit, is available at both.

“Despite some indications of a slowdown in the national market, we have found that providing a top quality product and excellent customer service in a good location is a winning formula and one we will continue with in the future,” he added.

Galliers other forthcoming new developments include Queens Walk in Baschurch. , featuring 29 properties and five affordable houses.

The company will pay just over £1.5 million to the council in Community Infrastructure Levy charges, which will be used to help fund facilities and services such as schools or transport improvements.
