The leading homebuilder invited the constituency MP to visit its development on Overstone Farm and go behind the scenes to look at the ongoing construction work taking place.

During his visit, Mr Heaton-Harris spent time meeting the team at Overstone Gate and discussed the plans for the new community with managing director of Barratt and David Wilson Homes South Midlands, John Dillon.

Mr Heaton-Harris said: “I would like to thank the team at Barratt and David Wilson Homes South Midlands for inviting me to take a look at their Overstone Gate development in my constituency.

“It was really interesting to learn about the archaeological findings at the development, and to see how the new homes site is investing in the local area including a highway contribution worth more than £7m.”

The development’s contacts manager, Kyle Shelton, and site managers Carl Webb and Ian Bott, walked Mr Heaton-Harris around the construction site to see the different stages of building a home, in which he was also able to lay a brick.

Sales manager David Woodcock then showed Mr Heaton-Harris around a show home to see how a fully furnished home would look.

The range of homes available at the development includes a selection of three and four bedroom properties.

Mr Dillon said: “We were delighted to welcome Chris Heaton-Harris MP on to the site and discuss our fantastic Overstone Gate development. It was great to show him the plan for the site and give him an opportunity to view the ongoing works.”
