Jones Homes has once again received five stars for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation (HBF) and National House Building Council (NHBC).
The highest accolade a homebuilder can achieve for exceptional customer service, the award is based on the results of the National New Home Customer Satisfaction Survey, an annual survey that gathers feedback from thousands of purchasers across the UK after they move into their new home.
One of the most comprehensive surveys of its kind in the UK, purchasers are asked a series of questions about their new home and their purchase experience from the internal and external design of their new home and timely delivery of their property, to their satisfaction with the sales, handover and aftercare processes.
Prestigious five star status is only awarded to companies where more than 90% of customers are satisfied with the quality of their home and would be happy to recommend a friend.
Managing director at Jones Homes, Gary Hardy, commented: “Customer satisfaction is at the heart of everything that we do; we’re delighted that our customers are happy to recommend us to their friends and family and to be once again awarded with five stars.
“Only a small number of homebuilders received five star status this year. This makes the achievement even more special and I would like to thank our team for continually striving to raise the bar and deliver exceptional quality and service for our customers.”
The five star rating from the HBF is the latest in a number of prestigious award wins for Jones Homes; one of its site managers was recently awarded with a prestigious Regional Award from the NHBC in the much coveted Pride in the Job Awards. The company also has six nominations in the annual Local Area Building Control awards (LABC) and it has just received an award from the Civic Society for its sensitive transformation of the Grade II listed Cold Arbor Farm buildings in Macclesfield into a desirable collection of three unique and distinctive new homes.

Award winning residential developer Jones Homes has secured planning permission for a further phase of new build homes at its popular Barrington Park development in Alsager.
Following an exceptional response to its first phase, Jones Homes has confirmed that it will build an additional 28 high quality homes on a 1.9 acre piece of land that borders the existing development.

They also boast an exceptional internal specification, with high quality contemporary kitchens with integrated appliances, modern bathrooms and en suites and a range of luxurious fixtures and fittings.
Managing director at Jones Homes, Gary Hardy, commented: “We’re delighted to have secured permission for a further phase of homes at Barrington Park. Offering a delightful semi-rural lifestyle in the charming village of Alsager, yet close to M6 for travelling and commuting, it is a great location and one of the many reasons why our previous phase has been in such high demand. Having built in Alsager previously, we are very much part of the local community and look forward to offering more quality new build homes to buyers from across the local area.”
Within the planning agreement, Jones Homes will make a number of Section 106 contributions that will be of direct benefit to the local community. A total of £125,950 will be contributed towards education, public green space, play space enhancement and wildlife habitat enhancement.

Alex Bedson, a Site Manager for Jones Homes, has won a prestigious Regional Award from the National House Building Council (NHBC) in its much coveted Pride in the Job Awards 2017.
Based at Jones Homes’ exclusive Bollin Park development in Wilmslow, Alex was honoured for his dedication to building homes of exceptional quality.
He was selected from more than 16,000 site managers from across the UK, and is one of only 12 site managers in the country to be recognised for his outstanding achievements.
Alex received his North West Regional Award in the medium builder category, and he is now automatically put forward as a candidate to compete for the ultimate accolade; a Pride in the Job Supreme Award, which will be announced in January 2018.
Having won a Pride in the Job award previously, it is the first time that Alex, who has been a site manager for over 10 years, has progressed so far in the competition.
First to congratulate Alex on his amazing achievement was Jones Homes’ Managing Director, Gary Hardy, who said: “This is a first for Jones Homes and we are incredibly proud of Alex for winning a Regional Award from the NHBC for Bollin Park. The prestige that is associated with such an accolade is widely acknowledged in the industry and it is exceptionally good news for Jones Homes that one of our site managers has been recognised as one of the best in the country.
“Alex is a talented site manager and his passion, leadership skills and commitment to building properties of the highest quality at Bollin Park has resulted in him being honoured as a top performing UK-based site manager by the NHBC.”
Now in its 37th year, the Pride in the Job Award is the most highly regarded competition in the housebuilding industry, and one all site managers strive to achieve. Judging for the awards is rigorous, with each site manager assessed in 44 areas of site management, including technical knowledge, consistency in the build process and quality control.
Competition in the North West was tough, with a total of four site managers in the region taking home a Regional Award.
On his Regional Award win, Alex says: “It is brilliant news! The Pride in the Job Awards are hugely competitive amongst site managers and I am thrilled to have progressed this far in the competition. To be put forward for the Supreme Awards is overwhelming, but I am proud of what I have achieved at Bollin Park and the success of the development. It is a team effort and I hope we have something to celebrate once again in January.”
Bollin Park offers a stunning collection of magnificent four and five bedroom detached properties in a highly desirable and sought-after setting in Cheshire. Located on Adlington Road, a leafy and attractive part of Wilmslow, the development is close to the town centre and just a short drive from the neighbouring villages of Prestbury and Alderley Edge.
New research carried out by the Home Builders Federation has found that the cost of upgrading an older property to the same standard as a new build home could be as much as £50,000. The publication of the data comes at the launch of this year’s New Homes Week which aims to highlight the many benefits for consumers of buying a new build home.
From the benefits of living in an energy efficient home that could save you hundreds of pounds on your utility bills each year, to the brand-new fixtures and fittings that come as standard, buying a new build home offers many advantages when compared to buying an older property.
The research looked at the work that might have to be carried out when people move into an older home, and what would have to be done to a home to bring it up to the standards of a new property which also comes with a warranty protecting the buyer from liability on structural problems within the first 10 years. Whether it’s the price of buying and fitting a new kitchen (£7,900) or having a house rewired (£8,850), the costs for people moving into an older home can quickly mount up.
For a homeowner who wants to get the same standard of finish and functionality they could expect from a new build home, the cost could be up to £51,643. This includes paying out for:
- Kitchen - £7,900
- Bathroom - £3,800
- Central heating - £6,185
- Wiring - £8,850
- Plastering - £5,240
- Decorating - £2,500
- Flooring - £2,628
- Insulation - £775
- Windows and doors - £4,900
- Roofing - £4,000
- Guttering - £690
And the savings continue: while just 26% of second- hand homes achieve an energy efficiency rating of A to C, 94% of homes built in 2016 could boast such standards.
Commenting on the figures, Stewart Baseley, executive chairman of the Home Builders Federation, said
“Buyers of new build homes enjoy a huge number of benefits over those purchasing a second-hand home.
“During the buying process customers will receive a high level of service and support from trained sales staff. Upon moving into a property that is designed for modern living, there are all the advantages of living in a home with brand new fixtures and fittings and the latest energy efficiency technologies.
“This report helps to highlight the hidden savings that buyers of new build homes make. While most people have a budget put aside to get the little jobs done, costs soon add up when you need to replace a bathroom or a kitchen.
“£50,000 is a lot of money by anyone’s standards, and this new research emphasises just how much new build home buyers really get for their money.”
With Jones Homes distinctly high specification standards and top levels of energy efficiency built into each home, the cost of not buying new could potentially be even higher. We have even introduced rooftop solar panels at selected locations.
The Home Builders Federation has also found that New homes being built in England and Wales are considerably more energy efficient than their predecessors, saving owners hundreds of pounds a year in energy bills, A new home owner will spend on average £443.30 a year (£276 heating / £108 hot water / £60 lighting), well under half of the £1,072 the owner of an older home can expect to spend – saving, on average, £52 a month, or £629 a year. Just another reason to chose a new Jones Home for your next move.

Jones Homes is delighted to confirm its support of Thongsbridge Cricket Club and its future initiatives.
The relationship between the housebuilder and the Club will commence immediately and will last for three years. During this period, Jones Homes will promote its residential developments on riverside boards within the ground.
With the Club looking to raise money to fund its plans for a new clubhouse, Jones Homes’ support and financial commitment until the end of the cricket season in 2020 will no doubt contribute towards this exciting development.

Furthermore, the Club has also expanded its junior offering, with its Little Lions division providing training for six teams, with players aged between five and 16.

Alan Moore, Chairman at Thongsbridge Cricket Club, adds: “We are thrilled to have Jones Homes on board for the next few seasons.

Jones Homes is delighted to welcome to their new home the first residents at its exclusive Gateford Park development in Worksop.
Due to high levels of interest and demand, Jones Homes welcomed the first residents earlier than planned, and some months before the showhomes are planned to be finished.
As such, Jones Homes has now released for sale a number of properties on phase 2, which are available to buy at pre-showhome prices.
Aesthetically attractive, each home will boast individual characteristics ensuring a varied street scene, synonymous with all Jones Homes developments. With modern lifestyles in mind, the internal arrangement of each home has been carefully considered and designed to feature open plan kitchens, dining and family rooms, studies, utility rooms and en suite shower rooms.
The homes will have an impressive specification as standard that includes a choice of contemporary kitchen complete with integrated appliances, fully tiled bathrooms, including a choice of floor and wall tiles, together with a range of fixtures and fittings that most would consider an optional extra including polished chrome light switches, doorbell and alarm systems to name but a few.
Jones Homes’ newly appointed Sales Advisor, Philippa Ingram, is on hand to help potential purchasers. Having worked in the housebuilding industry for many years, Philippa is perfectly placed to advise buyers, guide them through the build process and welcome them to Gateford Park.
She says: “The location of the development, combined with the stylish selection of new build homes, has certainly attracted high volumes of interest in Gateford Park. It is a true family development and we have taken reservations from many locals, as well as people from further afield who are moving into the area to be close to the motorway links.
“What sets Jones Homes apart from its competitors is the design and specification of our homes, with every aspect carefully considered. With construction progressing well and the first properties already occupied, I am keen to continue developing my relationships with residents as they move in, helping them create and settle in to their dream home.”
Responsible for the construction is Site Manager Andy Sanderson. Working alongside Andy is Assistant Site Manager Matthew Hetherington, who together will ensure the properties are built to high standards and are delivered on time, which also includes the showhomes that are scheduled to open this Summer.
Well located with excellent local amenities, schools and transport links, the development will appeal to families looking for a spacious home, as well as young professionals and commuters wanting to take advantage of village life yet retain easy access to the motorway network and regional train stations.
Prices at Gateford Park start from £274,995 for a four bedroom property and from £379,995 for a five bedroom home. Help to Buy is available at the development.

Jones Homes is delighted to contribute £500 to help Carlton Youth Centre re-design and re-develop its outside area.
The Youth Centre, which is located in Carlton in Lindrick in Worksop, is used by local children aged between eight and 18.
Working in partnership with North Notts College, who are providing Year 3 bricklayers and other students to assist with project, the money donated by Jones Homes has been used to purchase top soil for the garden and laid with turf plus flowers planted creating an attractive outdoor area.
To finish the project, the Youth Centre will build a wall around the garden, and add a giant chess board, plus a pizza oven in the BBQ area, ensuring the space appeals to the boys and girls that utilise the Youth Centre.
With build underway at its Gateford Park development close by, Jones Homes was happy to support Carlton Youth Centre and is looking forward to seeing the end result in the summer, once complete.
Jayne Swift, Sales and Marketing Director at Jones Homes, comments: “We are proud to support innovative and inspiring projects in the local community where we are building new homes and were delighted to contribute financially towards the landscaping at Carlton Youth Centre. The plans for the outside area are fantastic, and will completely transform the space, making it much more attractive and appealing to the youngsters that attend the Youth Centre on a regular basis.
Steve Scotthorne from Carlton Youth Centre adds: “This is a very exciting project for the Youth Centre and we are grateful to Jones Homes for the generous donation. The importance of community engagement from companies based in the area and developers building in the region is crucial to organisations such as ours, as often funding from the local authority doesn’t filter down to where it is needed most.
“The landscaping project is a good example of the County, District and Parish Council, together with Jones Homes, North Notts College and young people working in unison to improve the local amenities. For the youth involved, it is a wonderful opportunity to gain skills for life that they can take away and use in the work place in years to come, and for the Youth Centre and those that utilise it, it is an incredible transformation of our outdoor space.”
Martin Lane, Curriculum Team Leader at North Notts College, says: “Its is our aim to work with and support local communities, helping them meet their needs and giving our students the opportunity for work experience and learning skills that can be used in the workplace. This project allows our students to gain a better understanding of the construction industry, and it enhances what they learn within the workshop.
“We want our students to be involved in projects, such as this, that are here to stay, and take pride in their work. Jones Homes’ support means we can purchase a necessary material that is a vital part of the re-development.”
With its spectacular setting in sought-after Gateford, just one mile from Worksop, Gateford Park is an exclusive development of four and five bedroom detached family homes.

Award winning national housebuilder Jones Homes has started work on its exciting new residential development, Cavendish Grange, which is just off Oxcroft Lane on the edge of this historic market town of Bolsover.
Formerly brownfield land, the 3.45 acre site will be transformed into a stunning new residential development of 35 properties, most of which will be four bedroom detached homes.

Buying a new home is a big decision so you have to make sure that the property you choose is the right one for you - and that you are able to afford not only the purchase price but also the costs of upgrading and maintaining it. All too often, older properties can turn out to be ‘money pits,’ leaving you to deal with damp, woodworm, dry rot – and in the case of some Victorian homes, without foundations! Selecting a brand new home, on the other hand, may save you money and time although it is often difficult to find new homes in delightful, historic villages.
This certainly isn’t the case in the pretty Sussex village of Wisborough Green, located on the A272 between Petworth and Billingshurst, within easy reach of Horsham and Guildford. This picture-postcard village with its village green, local shop/post office, primary school and two traditional pubs, is the setting for Jones Homes’ Bluebell Meadow, a stylish collection of two, three and four-bedroom houses.
Choose one of the new homes at Bluebell Meadow and you’ll not only be the first to use the kitchen and bathrooms – it will also be easy to add your own ‘finishing touches’ to your new home. Buy an older property, however, and the cost of upgrading it to the same standards could be in the region of £45,000 according to the Home Builders’ Federation.* Running costs of a new home are estimated to be approximately 50% less than the equivalent Victorian property which could mean annual savings of around £1400 a year.* With a brand new Jones home, you’ll also have a 10-year structural warranty.
Three house types are currently on offer at Bluebell Meadow, including the two-bedroom detached Bolney house type, the two-bedroom semi-detached Petworth and the three-bedroom detached Wisborough, Prices start from £445,000 for a two-bedroom home and, for further information, please contact the Jones Homes’ sales office on 01403-701033, between 10 am to 5.00 pm, Thursday to Monday inclusive. Details on all Jones Homes’ developments may be found on the website at www.jones-homes.co.uk.
A recent survey revealed that the top reasons for home buyers ‘falling in love’ with a property were the location, the price and the garden. The sales team at Jones Homes Southern would definitely agree with this, given the popularity of the recently-landscaped show home garden at Mayfield Place on Love Lane, Mayfield.
The new show home garden, which requires minimal maintenance, has attracted so much positive feedback that the team has decided to landscape the gardens of a two more new homes at Mayfield Place.
The show home garden has been designed to harmonise with the dramatic wooded rock that provides shelter and privacy for the garden. Easily maintained decking features a raised seating area and a raised planter, both of which have been planted with hardy shrubs. Hedging and a sculptured privet provide green focal points and the shrubs planted in the flower beds will mature, providing colour, texture and year-round interest. This is a perfect ‘gin and tonic’ garden - designed as a place to relax after a hard day at work!
“By landscaping the show home garden – and the gardens of two of our new houses, we are enabling our home buyers to recognise the potential. Our landscaped gardens are extremely attractive and will be easy to look after which is what people who have busy lives need and want. You don’t need ‘green fingers’ if the landscaping has already been done when you move in”
For those who want to buy a new home with a landscaped garden, there is a choice of two new homes – plots 14 and 15 – at Mayfield Place. These are attractive, three-bedroom mid-terraced homes featuring a living/dining room with patio doors leading to the rear garden, a kitchen/breakfast room with fully integrated appliances and a ground floor cloakroom. Two of the three bedrooms and a fully tiled family bathroom are located on the first floor with an en-suite master bedroom with dressing area on the second floor.
Those who ‘fall in love’ with the gardens at Mayfield Place, will also be happy with the location and the price of £449,995 for plot 14 and £460,000 for plot 15 which represent excellent value for money. Mayfield is located on the A267, less than four miles from Crowborough’s mainline station which provides services to London Bridge and Charing Cross via East Croydon or Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks, with journey times of just over an hour to London. The village has a primary school, local shops and country walks – and plenty of activities.
For further details on Mayfield Place, please contact the Jones Homes’ sales team on 01435-872513 or visit the website on www.jones-homes.co.uk. The sales office and show home are open from 10 am to 5 pm, Thursday to Monday inclusive.
New homes bring so many benefits – more energy-efficient than older properties, including the latest fixtures and fittings and you’re the first to use the bathroom and kitchen. Often, however, you have to wait several months for the building work to be completed. At Jones Homes’ Appledown Grange in Marden, however, there’s a small selection of three, four and five-bedroom houses ready and waiting for their new owners to move in.
These new homes offer excellent value for money with prices ranging from £389,995 for a three-bedroom semi-detached Baycliffe house with a garage to £615,000 for a five-bedroom detached Hamilton house, also with a garage. There’s also a four-bedroom detached Mawdsley house type with an integral garage for £465,000. These prices are even more attractive with the Government-backed Help to Buy on offer on selected plots.
Designed to help those who don’t have a large deposit but who can afford a mortgage, Help to Buy means being able to buy a new home with a 5% deposit and a 75% mortgage. The remaining 20% is provided in the form of an equity loan, interest free for five years. This scheme has already helped 100,000 people onto the property ladder since it was introduced in 2013 and is scheduled to come to an end in 2020.
Located about 8 miles south of Maidstone, Marden is a great place to live with excellent shops, schools and leisure facilities. There’s a village post office, grocer’s, pharmacy, butcher’s and a bakery, two pubs and the village club as well as a medical centre, dentist, hair salons, barber’s shop and beauty salon, two garages and a vet. There are parent and toddler sessions, a local playgroup, primary school and several secondary schools in the area. The local station provides a regular mainline service to London.
As newcomers to the village will see in the ‘Welcome Pack’ there is so much on offer for residents of all ages - from art, dance and fitness classes to bell ringing, choral, walking and theatre groups as well as history and heritage societies, a car club, Thursday club and youth club. This is certainly a village with a strong sense of community.
The village – and the new homes – are best appreciated in person so to arrange to view the new homes or to find out more about Jones Homes or Help to Buy, please contact the Jones Homes’ sales team on 01622-831507 between 10 am and 5.30 pm, seven days a week. Full details on all Jones Homes’ developments are available on the website at www.jones-homes.co.uk.
