A building development in Pocklington is playing a major part in supporting sub-contractors in the Yorkshire area.

Barratt Development’s Yorkshire East division has announced that over the past 12 months it has invested approximately £60 million through working with more than 250 local sub-contractors.

This has resulted in around 1,000 jobs being created across the region.

Barratt’s Pavilion Square development in Pocklington has helped to make significant contributions to the total figure.

The investment is boosted by a further 200 labour only sub-contractors – mainly bricklayers and joiners – which has resulted in an investment of over £7 million into the local area.

An additional economic output of £45 million will also be invested by the five star housebuilder throughout the region this year based on current growth plans.

Steve Mattinson, Construction Director at Barratt Developments’ Yorkshire East division, said: “We are passionate about contributing to the communities in which we build, and a major factor of this is ensuring we use local companies to build our homes.

“Not only does this ensure our homes remain sympathetic to their surroundings, but it also allows us to really boost the local economy and deliver significant contributions to local employment figures.

“We are delighted by the investments we were able to make to the local economy last year and look forward to achieving our predicted results throughout the year to come.

“Ensuring that there are enough quality homes for people to get on to and step up the property ladder is a real priority for us, and with this in mind we are calling on talented sub-contractors from across the region to get in touch if they’re interested in working with us.”

Barratt Development’s Yorkshire East division includes both the Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes brands.
