Persimmon Homes to build over 500 homes in Nottinghamshire after opening regional headquarters

Persimmon Homes is planning to build more than 500 homes in Nottinghamshire after opening a new headquarters in Mansfield.

The new division is the housebuilders' 29th regional office and "will bring new homes to towns where they are needed," says managing director Neil Follows.

With around 40 new jobs created and homes for sale at Newark-on-Trent, Retford, Hucknall, Lincoln, Sleaford and Clipstone, Follows added: “We are delighted to have launched Persimmon Homes Nottingham, which represents a significant economic boost to the county.

“We have already made a number of appointments and still have positions to fill. Our focus will be on bringing in energetic, enthusiastic, local people with good knowledge of what Nottinghamshire needs and requires.

“Furthermore, there will be genuine benefits for the communities in which we work. This includes significant contributions towards education, new roads and healthcare to name but a few.”
