THE firm behind the Locking Parklands development has launched a new equity loan scheme to help first-time home buyers get on the property ladder.
St Modwen Homes’ new FirstStep scheme is designed to rival the Government’s FirstBuy scheme and will allow people to gain a loan of up to 25 per cent of the full purchase price of a home at the former RAF base.
The scheme is not just available to first-time buyers, but to anyone looking to buy a home at the site.
When completed, the development will eventually have up to 1,500 homes, many of which are already on the market.
