Building court faces court over debt

A Yorkshire building firm is set to appear in court after it amassed a number of unpaid debts.

Lewis Homes is understood to owe more than £300,000 to HM Revenue and Customs and a number of suppliers.

The housebuilding firm, based at Robin Hood Airport business estate, is part of the Lewis Group and is facing a hearing to compulsorily wind up the business.

One of its suppliers, Slingsby Plant Hire, brought the winding-up petition to the courts after it claimed to be owed £10,000 for building materials and aggregates.

Wolseley Plumb Center has confirmed it is also a creditor and is thought to be owed £70,000, with a further £236,000 reported to be outstanding by the builders to the taxman.
