Uplands housing solution

17 October 2011

The 6 families promised homes at the Uplands Housing development will be able to purchase their homes for the price originally promised.

Planning and Environment Minister Deputy Rob Duhamel said that, following detailed discussions and a final meeting on Friday, an agreement had now been reached with the developer SAM Homes to resolve the situation.

The Uplands properties at Mont a l’Abbe are part of a larger housing development and were originally due to be sold under the affordable homes Homebuy scheme. Following difficulties in applying the Homebuy scheme, the Planning and Environment Minister and representatives from SAM Homes worked hard to find a suitable way forward.

Deputy Duhamel said: “I would like to thank the developer for honouring the spirit of the original agreement and a solution is now being progressed for the 6 families concerned.”

Work is now underway to finalise the legal details of the agreement and it is hoped that the families will be able to move into their new homes in the very near future.

A spokesperson for SAM Homes said: “We are pleased to have had fruitful discussions with the Minister for Planning and Environment and we are very happy to deliver the promise of home ownership to these six families, as we always intended. We have communicated this position to the families concerned.”
