A housing development in Hunstanton is creating jobs for local tradesmen, says retirement housebuilder McCarthy and Stone.

They have employed a local workforce to deliver its Eastland Grange Retirement Living Plus development on Valentine Road.

The development will include 54 one and two bedroom apartments designed for the over 70s.

Since construction began, a number of jobs for tradesmen in the area have been created with more jobs in areas such as plumbing, electric, dry lining, painting and decorating to follow.

Adam Jagger, site manager for Eastland Grange, said: “McCarthy and Stone’s commitment to sourcing its tradespeople from the local work pool has already provided a welcome boost for the Hunstanton community.

“As the build programme continues, we will be looking to recruit even more skilled tradespeople from the surrounding areas.”

The apartments are due to finish by summer this year with the first occupants to move in from February 2019.
