Keyworker boost for Sherborne
Keyworkers have been snapping up homes on a Sherborne development, according to a housebuilder.
The initiative assists those who work in the NHS, police force, education, fire service, Ministry of Defence, environmental health service, Highways England traffic officer service, prison service, probation service or local authorities to get on the housing ladder.
Faye Cooper, marketing manager for Bovis Homes’ South West region, said: “At Bovis Homes, we understand the time pressure that key workers face, and the scheme is designed to take some of the stress out of buying a new home.
“The Key Workers scheme also aims to minimise the potential costs of buying a new home and is proving popular across our region.”
The packages include a price discount of £500 for every £25,000 spent, which equates to 2% of the list price, along with flooring up to a value of £3,000.
Faye added: “The Key Workers scheme is a great opportunity for people who do important work for our communities to get something back.
“It’s lovely to see individuals and families move into their dream house with a little extra help from Bovis Homes.”
Key workers were one of the important groups we identified in need of support when we launched Opening Doors.
They were among the young working families we were keen to help, to ensure we kept and attracted people to our communities.
Special schemes for key workers are one way of helping these people as we seek to see the construction of 20,000 more homes by 2033.
Opening Doors aims to encourage the construction of 20,000 more homes of all tenures by 2033 across north, south and west Dorset.
