Crest wins second £60k homes plot


CREST Nicholson has bagged the latest plot of land in the Government's £60,000 house competition.

The house builder is the lead party in the SixtyK consortium, which has been appointed as the preferred developer for a former hospital site in Coxheath, near Maidstone, Kent. It is Crest Nicholson's second win in the competition.

The appointment is the ninth in the Deputy Prime Minister's Design for Manufacture competition and leaves only one more site still to be won.

Crest Nicholson, along with consortium partners Kingspan and architects Sheppard Robson, will build around 150 homes on the 4 ha plot formerly known as Linton Hospital. It is estimated that 45 of the homes will be built for £60,000 and a third of the total homes will be 'af fordable'.
