First time buyers can live the dream – thanks to a helping hand on deposits for contemporary new homes at Quaker Heights and Holden Road, Brierfield.

Leader of Pendle Council and PEARL2 board member Councillor Joe Cooney said this week: “The Government’s Help to Buy scheme is now available on new homes we’ve built in this attractive development, in what was the historic Lob Lane Mill.

“It makes these homes much more affordable.”

The new three and four-bedroomed homes have been developed by PEARL2, Pendle Council’s pioneering company with contractor, investor and developer, Barnfield Construction.

New buyers will only need to provide a 5% deposit on a property and the Government can lend up to 20% of the value of a new home.

The Government’s loan can be paid back at any time or on the future sale of the home.

Anyone wanting to find out if they qualify and how the loan works can get details from www.helptobuynw.org.uk or by phoning 0300 790 0570.

Would be buyers can visit the show homes which are open every weekend from 11am – 4pm or can arrange a special viewing by contacting Kelly Hankinson at Barnfield Homes on 442304.
