THE second phase of a new development in Narberth has been launched, bringing another 62 properties to the town.

The first phase of Persimmon Homes’ 41 properties at the Greenfields development off Jesse Road is now all-but sold out, with just three properties remaining.

Persimmon has started work on the second phase of work, which will see a further 62 homes built on site.

Sharon Bouhali, sales director at Persimmon Homes West Wales, said: “The new-build property market remains buoyant, as demonstrated by the success we have seen at Greenfields.

“This site launched 12 months ago and we’ve seen consistently strong sales ever since.

“We’re delighted to be pushing forward with this second phase of work. We’d urge anyone interested to move fast to ensure they secure their preferred plot.”

First time buyers are eligible to use the Government’s Help to Buy – Wales scheme, which means purchasers may only need a deposit of five per cent. The Government steps in with a 20 per cent equity loan, leaving a 75 per cent mortgage.
