First-time buyers will need to act fast if they want to use the Help to Buy ISA to get onto the property ladder.
The Government-backed scheme enables customers to earn a 25 per cent bonus on their savings if they use the money towards the purchase of a new home.
More than 30,000 first-time buyers in the North West have taken advantage of the scheme since it was launched in December 2015.
But anyone who hasn’t already opened a Help to Buy ISA will need to do so by midnight on Saturday 30th November when the scheme closes to new applicants.
Those who have an account open by the deadline will be able to continue saving until November 2029.
Gemma Pownall, Sales Director at Jones Homes North West, which is building new homes across the region in Cheshire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside, said: “The Help to Buy ISA is a great option for first-time buyers to boost their savings and achieve their dream of home ownership more quickly. The Government’s own statistics show that the average age of a first-time buyer who has purchased using a Help to Buy ISA is just 28, compared to the average first-time buyer age of 30.
“Many of our customers have taken advantage of the scheme and I would encourage anyone who is thinking of purchasing a home in the next few years to open a Help to Buy ISA before the November 30th deadline so they too can benefit from the 25 per cent bonus on their savings.”
Craig Walker, 24, and his partner Sophie Awajan, 22, used the money they saved in their Help to Buy ISAs to purchase their first home together, a three-bedroom semi-detached house at Jones Homes’ Kingsfield Park development in Tytherington, Macclesfield.
Craig, an audio-visual engineer, said: “We had been saving up to buy our own home for a while and had looked at a few different developments around Macclesfield.
“This development just had everything we were looking for and the price of the property meant the house that we wanted was achievable with our Help to Buy ISAs.”
First-time buyers can open a Help to Buy ISA for just £1, up to a maximum deposit of up to £1,200. Savers can then save up to £200 each month thereafter. Account holders can earn a 25 per cent bonus on their savings up to a maximum of £3,000. They will need to save £1,600 before they can claim the minimum bonus of £400.
Accounts are available to each first-time buyer, meaning a couple could receive a combined bonus of up to £6,000 towards their first home. The bonus can be used to purchase a home worth up to £250,000.
A trainee site manager in Wilmslow has been named Young Builder of the Year 2019.
Nick James, 24, who works at Jones Homes’ Sanctuary Wilmslow development for active over-55s off Coppice Way, picked up the prestigious award during a prize giving at the House of Commons.
The Young Builder of the Year Awards, which are run by Youth Build UK, celebrate the achievements of young people in the construction industry.
Winners are announced in two age categories; Nick won the award for 18 to 24-year-olds, while another prize was awarded for those aged 14 to 18.
His award follows the success of his site manager Rob Bennett, who recently received a coveted Seal of Excellence from the National House Building Council (NHBC) in recognition of his work at the development.
Having embarked on a landscaping apprenticeship straight after leaving school, Nick joined Jones Homes five years ago as an apprentice joiner, working at the Bollin Park development off Adlington Road. He has been a trainee site manager at Sanctuary Wilmslow for the past two years.
The 24-year-old, who lives in Hazel Grove, Stockport, said: “It’s great to be recognised for my hard work. I’m part of a fantastic team so I feel honoured to be the one to have received this award.”
“Because I started an apprenticeship straight after leaving school, I didn’t take the college courses or qualifications that most people do in order to become a site manager, but the apprenticeship I did with Jones Homes gave me the experience I needed to progress in my career.
“Working at Sanctuary Wilmslow has been great. The site is getting a lot of recognition, not only with me getting this award, but with Rob, the site manager, recently receiving the Seal of Excellence.”
Rob Bennett, Site Manager at Sanctuary Wilmslow, said: “Nick has been a valuable asset to the team ever since he joined us and he thoroughly deserves this award. He has shown all the attributes you need to be a successful site manager and I firmly believe he has got an extremely bright future in the industry.”
Sanctuary Wilmslow is a private gated development of cottages and apartments exclusively for the active over-55s which is due to launch in November.
A Wilmslow site manager has won a prestigious industry award in recognition of his work at a pioneering new housing development for the active over-55s.
Rob Bennett, 31, the site manager responsible for Jones Homes’ Sanctuary Wilmslow development in Wilmslow, has been awarded a Seal of Excellence by the National House Building Council (NHBC) – putting him in an elite band of site managers in the North West.
He received his prize at the NHBC’s Pride in the Job North West regional awards ceremony at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate on Friday 11th October, which he attended with his assistant site manager Nick James.
Rob was one of 41 finalists from across the region to make it through to the awards ceremony after winning a Pride in the Job Quality Award earlier this year, and one of just 11 to receive a Seal of Excellence.
Sanctuary Wilmslow, which is due to open to the public in November, will be an exclusive gated development for the active over-55s.
Located off Coppice Way, Sanctuary Wilmslow will be the first Jones Homes Active Living development in the UK, following the success of Jones Homes USA’s mature living developments in Florida.
Rob said: “Winning a Pride in the Job Quality Award was a great achievement but being presented with the Seal of Excellence award is an even bigger honour.
“I am lucky enough to be surrounded by an incredibly hard working team, and I don’t think it would have been possible for me to have won this award without their dedication to the job and the effort they have put in to make the development the best it can be.
“Sanctuary Wilmslow truly is a one-of-a-kind project, so to be made the site manager for the development and also win a prestigious award for my work there is fantastic.”
Ian Hilliker, Regional Director of Jones Homes North West, said: “We’re so thrilled for Rob that he has received this prestigious accolade from the NHBC.
“As a developer, we are continually striving to deliver the highest quality possible for our customers, and this award is a fitting recognition of the brilliant job that Rob and his team have done at Sanctuary Wilmslow.”
Jones Homes Lancashire is celebrating 10 years of building beautiful homes across the county and more recently expanding into Cumbria.
During the decade from 2010, the builder, which has its main regional office in Lytham St Annes, has built or is building 816 homes within 18 developments across the county
Ralph Bacon, Regional Director of Jones Homes Lancashire, said: “This is a significant landmark for Jones Homes in Lancashire during a period of growth. We’re a Lytham-based builder with a proud heritage of building for our neighbours right across Lancashire and a real commitment to the area.
“We take pride in our homes and we take pride in our region. We want to enhance the area where we all live ourselves.”
Jones Homes Lancashire developments built over the past decade span locations including Blackpool, Lytham and Preston. Over the past year work has finished at Kings Meadow in Staining, where Jones Homes built 30 homes and at The Willows, which is a development of just six homes of Willow Brooke Court in Blackpool.
The Lancashire division is currently building 242 homes at Moorfield Park in Poulton-le-Fylde, a 26-home development called Walton Meadows at Walton-le-Dale and Ribbleswood Chase, a development of 48 homes in the Cottam area of Preston.
Jones Homes Lancashire is part of The Emerson Group, a family-owned property development company that builds around 600 homes a year across the UK, from apartments, elegant conversion projects to spacious detached houses.
The group also manages a commercial property portfolio worth more than £1 billion and builds homes in Florida and Portugal.
Ralph Bacon said: “We deliver modern, luxury accommodation focusing on quality, appearance, layout and style – and we build to last.”
People who buy a new home in Preston from Jones Homes could net an unexpected bonus – tickets to see Preston North End FC at their home ground, Deepdale.
The Lilywhites have teamed up with housebuilder Jones Homes to offer two match tickets per new household on the developer’s sites at Ribbleswood Chase in Cottam and Walton Meadows in Walton-le-Dale.
The complimentary match tickets for Championship matches will be included in the welcome packs for people moving into one of the 74 homes on the two developments.
Carol Barlow, Sales Director for Jones Homes Lancashire, said: “We always like to greet new house buyers on our developments with a welcome pack that tells them a little about the area they’re moving into.
“What could be a better way of soaking up the local atmosphere than free tickets to the big local football club?
“Local people will know about the proud history of Preston North End and Deepdale of course, but people who have moved to the Preston area may not know much about the club, which is of huge importance to the town. They may even become loyal Preston North End supporters.
A Preston North End spokesman said: “Preston is a growing city, with many people moving into new housing in the area and we are delighted to partner with local housebuilders to welcome new residents of our city to the stadium for the first of what we hope will be many visits they will make over the coming months and years.”
Jones Homes’ Ribbleswood Chase development has a variety of homes available, including two-bedroom bungalows and three and four-bedroom family houses.
Walton Meadows, meanwhile, has just a few homes remaining for sale in a semi-rural suburb, including two-bedroom apartments, two-bedroom mews houses and four-bedroom detached houses.
Jones Homes has appointed a new area sales manager at its Yorkshire region.
Hayley Scott has over 25 years of experience in the construction industry, including a variety of roles with several different housebuilders.
Based at the privately-owned developer’s regional office in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, she is responsible for eight developments across Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
Hayley, who lives near Belper in Derbyshire, said: “Having climbed the career ladder and worked in so many different roles within the industry, I was keen to return to the role in which I was happiest and to find a position which offered longevity and job satisfaction.
“In my last job as a senior manager I was very much office based, so it’s great to be back on the road, working with the on-site teams again and helping people find their dream homes.
“I had heard nothing but wonderful things about Jones Homes. They have an outstanding reputation for build quality and are well-known for being an all-round great company to work for.
“At Jones Homes, the staff and customers are more than just a number. It’s a company which genuinely cares about its product and its people.
“I’ve worked in this industry for a long time and it can be tough, but working for a company with traditional values, a company that respects its staff while delivering high quality homes across the UK, is so refreshing.”
Jayne Swift, Sales and Marketing Director for Jones Homes Yorkshire, said: “Hayley is a highly experienced manager and we are thrilled to welcome her to our team.
“As a family-owned business, it’s wonderful to see industry professionals such as Hayley keen to join a company which cares about its people choosing to pursue their careers with us.
“Hayley is a very welcome addition to the team and we believe her skills and experience will prove invaluable as we look to move the business forward in the coming years.”
Jones Homes Yorkshire is currently building at developments in Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
Construction work is progressing well at new housing development in Golcar, where the first homes are nearing completion.
Jones Homes is building 19 new homes at Century View, off Swallow Lane and the first residents are set to move in spring 2020.
Eleven of the 19 properties were sold off-plan ahead of the development’s launch and a further two have been reserved since the sales centre opened in September.
Century View, named due to its proximity to the village cricket field, will include a range of three-bedroom semi-detached and four-bedroom detached houses. Three of the homes have been designated as starter homes, which will be sold at a discounted price to first-time buyers who meet qualifying criteria.
Jayne Swift, Sales and Marketing Director at Jones Homes Yorkshire, said: “We are pleased with the progress we are making at Century View and are looking forward to welcoming the first residents into their homes.
“The development generated a lot of interest right from the moment we announced our plans for century View, and the fact that more than half of the homes were reserved off-plan before the launch demonstrates just how popular the development has already proven to be. With just five properties remaining, we would advise anyone wanting a new home in Golcar to contact us now to avoid missing out.
“Jones Homes previously built 20 homes at Meadow View off Leymoor Road in Golcar. This development, which was completed in 2017, was especially popular because it offered the benefits of living in a new home without being part of a large estate and it appears the same will be true of Century View.
“The starter homes will be a real asset to the community. These homes will be sold at 20 per cent below the usual market value to people who could not otherwise afford to buy a home of their own.
“There is a need for more new homes in Golcar and Jones Homes is committed to ensuring that these are delivered to the highest possible standards. The quality of build will be first class and the homes will be equipped with fixtures and fittings for which other developers would usually charge extra.”
Jones Homes builds across the North of England and the South East. Its Yorkshire headquarters is located in Cleckheaton. The company was established 60 years ago and is currently expanding its presence across Yorkshire. Century View is one of seven new sites purchased by the Yorkshire division over the past year.
Harworth Football Club is celebrating after securing the backing of Jones Homes for a fifth successive season.
Jones Homes which have supported the club since starting building in Harworth in 2014, recently finished construction at Woodland Grange and are currently building at Simpson Park off Scrooby Road.
This year, Jones Homes have sponsored Harworth FC’s reserve team kit, following a donation towards upgrading the ground floodlights last year.
Chairman of Harworth FC, Jonathan Wilson, said: “The club is delighted and humbled to have the continued support of Jones Homes.
“Since Jones Homes began work at Woodland Grange, staff have always shown a great interest in the club, helping us where needed. As a club we wish them well with the new development at Simpson Park as they continue to shape the growth of the town. We are delighted they have looked to get involved with the local community too.
“As well as sponsoring our reserve team kit, Jones Homes also assisted with the funding required for the floodlights upgrade last year. We are so pleased to be associated with the company and long may that continue.”
Jayne Swift, Sales and Marketing Director at Jones Homes, said: “Building in Harworth has given us the great opportunity to continue to work with a whole range of people from the community.
“It is wonderful to be able to continue our support for Harworth FC, who play next door to Simpson Park.
“We wish Harworth FC all the best for this season and look forward to seeing how the club progresses throughout the year.”
Jones Homes is building a range of three and four-bedroom homes at Simpson Park. The development is part of the wider regeneration of the former Harworth Colliery site, a scheme which was recently named Regeneration and Restoration Project of the Year at the Insider Media East Midlands Property Awards.
A Yorkshire housebuilder is helping three ambitious apprentices lay the foundations for successful careers in the construction industry. Jacob Pickering, Liam Banks and Tom Tilbrook are learning their respective trades on site at Jones Homes’ Heather View development in Hade Edge near Holmfirth.
The trio are working towards gaining industry-accredited qualifications as part of the developer’s apprenticeship scheme, splitting their time between classroom-based learning at college and hands-on experience on site.
Apprentice bricklayer Jacob, 18, was inspired to pursue a career in construction after witnessing an extension being carried out to his parents’ house in Birstall.
Jacob, who is studying at Leeds College of Building, said: “Seeing the builders working on the extension was really interesting and it looked like something I would enjoy doing. “I did a year at college before starting my apprenticeship with Jones Homes. I’m really enjoying it so far and I’m learning a lot. It’s really satisfying to build something and then take a step back and see the finished product. I would like to become a qualified bricklayer and eventually run my own business.”
Liam, 19, of Liversedge, embarked on his joinery apprenticeship after doing work experience with a joiner while at school. He is studying at Kirklees College. He said: “I have always been interested in joinery and it’s something I have wanted to do ever since school. This apprenticeship has given me a chance to work with different people and learn new skills. I really enjoy being on site as every day is different. You are always learning something new.”
At 35 years of age, fellow trainee joiner Tom is proof that you are never too old to be an apprentice. Tom, who lives in Leeds and is studying at Leeds College of Building, has previous carpentry experience, but decided to work towards a formal qualification to boost his employment prospects. He said: “Although I have worked as a carpenter before I have already learnt quite a lot during my apprenticeship. I am planning on doing a third year and honing my skills before looking for work as a fully-fledged joiner.”
Heather View site manager Ben Bowen, who has been overseeing the apprentices’ progress on site, said: “Apprentices are the future of the industry so at Jones Homes we are keen to help the next generation of builders take their first steps on the career ladder. “I started out as a bricklaying apprentice myself and from there I eventually worked my way up to site manager. Doing an apprenticeship enables you to get a trade behind you and opens up so many opportunities to earn a good living and have a rewarding career. The three apprentices at Heather View are really keen and eager to learn and I have been really pleased with their progress. I am sure they will all go on to enjoy successful careers in the industry.”
Construction is underway on 24 new homes in the village of Harthill. Jones Homes Yorkshire is building the houses at its Hillside Green development, off Winney Hill. The development will include a selection of four and five-bedroom properties, alongside six two and three-bedroom homes designated as affordable housing.
The first homes are due to be released for sale in October, with the first completions scheduled for March next year.
David Ruffley, Regional Director for Jones Homes Yorkshire, said: “We are pleased to have started work in Harthill and are looking forward to releasing these homes for sale this autumn. We know this development will provide much-needed private and affordable housing in the area. Harthill has great transport links to the M1, Sheffield and Rotherham so the homes here will be perfect for young professionals, families and people who commute to the surrounding cities for work. We have already experienced a lot of interest in this development and I’d advise anyone interested to register for updates on our website, so they can be the first to know when homes are released for sale.”
Jones Homes is currently building new homes near Harthill at Van Dyk Village in Clowne, as well as at sites in Worksop, Bolsover and Harworth.
Born and bred Londoner Shaun Brown has found his dream home on the rural Isle of Sheppey, allowing him to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
The former IT consultant and software engineer moved out of London in June to a new home at Jones Homes’ Kingsborough Manor development in Eastchurch.
Shaun and his partner Gary McDonald, sold their two-bedroom flat in central London, investing the proceeds in their new Hartford Regent II four-bedroom detached house, with money to spare for furnishings, a new car and then some.
Shaun, who has taken an early retirement to start his new life on the Isle of Sheppey, said: “One of the main things we were looking for was open space. In London you can become so accustomed to small spaces and I really wanted to get away from that.
“We visited several new-build developments in and around Kent and felt the homes at other developments had too many small rooms and not enough living space.
“This house has so much space to live in. Our favourite room is the garden room where we can sit with our breakfast looking out into our south-facing garden, but we are also massive movie fans, so our living room doubles up as our very own movie theatre that we love just as much.”
The couple have not moved into their new house alone, having been accompanied by their eight-month-old Husky, Troy.
Shaun said: “As a society we socialise through our dogs and that couldn’t be truer here. There are lots of dogs on the development and there are amazing walking routes with the most beautiful views.
“On the day we moved in Troy went into the back garden and rubbed his face into the grass and sniffed the air and the sea breeze and I looked at him and I thought, you are right Troy, the air is so much cleaner here.
“It is so peaceful and quiet, and the people are so friendly. In London everyone is so busy that they don’t have the time to stop and appreciate what’s around them – whereas here, the people say hello and they sent us welcome cards when we moved in. It’s a different world.”
As Shaun has now retired, the couple put a lot of thought into this move, looking for the perfect home to spend the rest of their lives in.
Shaun said: “I have lived in a few new-build developments in my life and I knew what to expect as part of the process, but what I didn’t expect was the family feel that Jones Homes provided.
“You can tell it’s a family business because it doesn’t have that corporate feel. The sales advisors were so friendly and helped us with every step, making it so seamless.
“This is one of the most stunning places with beautiful sweeping hills for as far as the eye can see. It’s the perfect place and home to retire in.”
Jones Homes is building a range of spacious four and five-bedroom detached homes at Kingsborough Manor, which is located just off Eastchurch Road.

The foundations have been laid at a new housing development in Lenham, ready for the first homes to go on sale later this year.
Construction work is now underway at Jones Homes’ Westwood Park development, off Ham Lane, where Jones Homes Southern is building 70 new homes.
Westwood Park will include a range of three and four-bedroom houses, with the first plots due to be released for this winter, when a sales centre will open on site.
Sara Stanhope, Sales Director for Jones Homes Southern, said: “Building work has now started to deliver these new homes at Westwood Park, which neighbours our existing Westwood Grange development in the village.
“We are proud of the links we’ve already built in the village and are looking forward to further strengthening our relationship with the local community through this new development.
“There’s a growing need for new homes in this part of Kent, especially three and four-bedroom houses for couples and families, and we have carefully designed the properties we are building here to meet this rising demand.
“With work progressing well on site, we’re now looking forward to welcoming the first visitors to the development later this year. In the meantime, people can visit our website and register their interest to ensure they receive the latest information about the launch as it becomes available.”
As part of the planning agreement for the development, Jones Homes will make contributions of around £290,000 to support local infrastructure, including education and healthcare, open spaces, traffic improvements and libraries.
The development will feature a landscaped area to the north-west of the site, while hedges to the east and south will be preserved and there will be nest boxes for swifts to the north of the development, where the houses will look out onto the Kent Downs.
To register for updates on the new homes coming soon at Westwood Park, visit jones-homes.co.uk.
As a project sales manager in the building industry, you’d expect Jon Robinson to know a good new home when he saw one.
So when he calls the house he bought ‘exceptional’, you can take notice.
Jon (57) bought the three-bedroom semi-detached Baycliffe house at Jones Homes’ Appledown Grange development in Marden, near Maidstone, earlier this year.
He said: “I think it’s an exceptionally well built and designed house and with a great use of space - the kitchen/dining room right across the rear of the house was exactly what I was looking for”.
“All the bedrooms are a good size; even the third bedroom, which I’ll be using as an office, and it’s also got a very good size garage.”
The Baycliffe design is eye-catching from the outside, with the triangular shape of its white clad exterior reminiscent of the sales of a yacht.
Inside, the kitchen/dining room has French doors to the garden, while there’s also a spacious living room and a downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs, the master bedroom has an en-suite shower room, and there are two other good-size bedrooms and a main bathroom.
Jon used the Help to Buy scheme to purchase the house which he said had helped him buy a better property than he would otherwise have been able to.
The scheme allows buyers to secure a new-build home with a five per cent deposit and a 75 per cent mortgage. The remaining 20 per cent is provided by a Government loan which is interest free for the first five years.
Jon said he bought a new-build home because “it’s reassuring to have a 10-year structural guarantee for the property as well as the developers own Customer Care service”.
He said he had learnt over the years that any new building could have little snags, and it was then a question of how quickly the developer rectified these snags.
He said: “At Marden the customer care team are very responsive and the customer care rep I deal with is both very likeable and multi-talented!
“Just as importantly, the sales team looked after me really well along my own journey, keeping me updated and ‘in the loop’ all the time. It’s a critical factor for any purchaser”
Jon is also a fan of the large village of Marden. “Technically it’s a village, but it seems to have the amenities of a small town, whilst maintaining a ‘village’ atmosphere and spirit” he said.
“I needed a quality house home where I could walk out of the front door into a community. Marden has a great new sports club, shops, an amazing cafe, two really good pubs, a social club and an all-important railway station.
It’s a 10-minute walk from Appledown Grange to the station, and then just 55 minutes to Charing Cross. The development also has good links to the road network, including the A21, the A229 and then to the M25.
“I just found that Appledown Grange and this particular house ticked all my boxes,” he said. “I would definitely recommend the house and, equally, the developer and their build quality to anyone.”
There’s a choice of three, four and five-bedroom homes currently available to reserve at Appledown Grange, Marden. For more information, contact the sales office, open every day from 10am to 5.30pm, on 01622 831507 or visit jones-homes.co.uk.
Jones Homes Southern has unveiled a new Signature Collection, showcasing a range of homes with exceptionally high specification.
The collection will be rolled out in larger homes across the company’s developments in the South East.
The first Signature Collection show home has opened at Jones Homes’ flagship Kingsborough Manor development in Eastchurch, Kent. The next development to feature the range will be Folders Grove, in Burgess Hill, West Sussex, where two Signature Collection show homes are due to open later this year.
Sales and Marketing Director Sara Stanhope said: “Jones Homes has built its reputation on creating homes which demonstrate the highest standards of design and specification.
“At Kingsborough Manor, we have spent 20 years building large executive homes to help attract new residents to the area and to meet the needs of people who already live in Eastchurch.
“This approach, which was masterminded by the local authority, has enabled us to create a thriving new community at Kingsborough Manor. As we move into the final stages, we identified a need to raise the bar even further and the new Signature Collection was our response.”
The Signature Collection homes feature luxurious extras as standard. Bathrooms have been designed with full height Porcelanosa tiling, Villeroy and Boch sanitaryware and Hansgrohe taps. The Aqualisa digital showers and digital bath fillers add an additional level of indulgence. For home entertainment, there’s even the option of adding an integrated home sound system, which can be operated from around the house.
The open-plan Symphony kitchens combine style and functionality, with integrated Neff appliances, including a wine cooler and induction hob.
The star of the Signature Collection at Kingsborough Manor is the garden room, which floods the homes with space and light through the expansive windows and bifold doors. There are also wider driveways, remote control garage doors and external floodlights.
Sara Stanhope said: “The new Signature Collection has been extremely well received at Kingsborough Manor and we are confident it will be just as popular when we unveil the homes at Folders Grove.
“The range has been driven by our customers’ feedback and it will continue to evolve, but the principles of luxurious fixtures and fittings, complemented by additional space and light, will remain at the heart of the collection.”
Four and five-bedroom homes at Kingsborough Manor range from £600,000 to £660,000. For more information on Jones Homes Southern developments and the Signature Collection see jones-homes.co.uk
