THE Mayor of Thrapston, Cllr Craig Wheeler, sported a high-vis vest and hard hat as he was welcomed to the Charter's Gate development for a guided tour of the site.
During his visit to the Huntingdon Road development, Cllr Wheeler was accompanied by Adam Knight, Managing Director of Barratt Homes Cambridgeshire and Andy Richards, Construction Director.
The Mayor saw the construction progress first-hand and was able to step inside a completed property, demonstrating the delivery of homes at the development.
Cllr Wheeler said: "It has been a pleasure to see how the street scene at the front of the development has progressed, enhancing the town and making the main entrance to both the development and town enticing and welcoming. I was also pleased to learn how Barratt Homes have used local suppliers and tradesmen to work on site."
Once the development is complete, Charter's Gate will accommodate an extensive range of three, four and five-bedroom homes perfect for first-time buyers, growing families and downsizers looking to progress on the property ladder.
Adam Knight said: "It was our pleasure to have Cllr Wheeler visit our Charter's Gate development and we were delighted to show him the progress we're making on site.
"Many homebuyers are now making the move to this fantastic location and we're looking forward to welcoming our new residents to this growing community in Thrapston."
