Legal & General Modular Homes is to create up to 300 new jobs after agreeing a deal with a Peabody-owned Kent-based housing provider to build 153 modular homes.
The deal to acquire a site in Broadstairs for affordable provider Town & Country Housing brings L&G’s Modular Homes’ factory pipeline to 670 homes.
L&G says it plans to create the new jobs by the end of the year at its production and logistics business near Leeds.
The latest scheme, on Poorhole Lane, will be funded by Homes England and comprises a mix of two-, three-, and four-bed houses.
All properties have been designed to EPC A standard.
From its factory in Sherburn-in-Elmet in Yorkshire, L&G Modular Homes plans to build 3,000 modular homes a year by 2024.
Commenting on this latest dervelopment, Rosie Toogood, chief executive of Legal & General Modular Homes, said: “With our delivery pipeline now for 670 homes, the business is making great steps forward.
“Our latest scheme in Broadstairs, along with our schemes in Selby, Bristol, and North Horsham will really showcase the part modular can play in helping the UK to Build Back Better.”
