A new development in Slough is one of the first to take part in the Government’s First Homes scheme.

The scheme allows first time buyers and keyworkers a 30 per cent discount and Slough Urban Renewal’s (SUR) Novus Apartments is the only development in Slough currently able to offer it.

Andy Howell, general manager at SUR which developed the site, said: “We are delighted that Novus Apartments is one of the first developments in the region to be able to offer the new Government First Homes Scheme.

“By enabling us to offer the homes at a discount of 30 per cent, we are able to open up these homes up to more first time buyers and key workers, who are currently finding themselves priced out of the market.

“The new First Homes scheme is set to make home ownership more accessible to those commencing their home buying journey and we are excited to be able to offer it here at Novus Apartments. Anyone who would like some more information is urged to book an appointment to visit our sales office or to take a look at the new dedicated section on our website.”

The First Homes scheme is available on a selection of the one and two-bedroom apartments at Novus. Interested purchasers can visit the website for further information or contact the sales team direct, to discuss edibility criteria.

First Homes was announced by Homes England with a total of £150 million to invest with its pilot scheme and had highlighted Slough in its top 10 areas to invest in.

Apartments allocated to the First Homes scheme effectively reduce the market value by 30 per cent to prospective homeowners, which is then topped up by the grant. The scheme is targeted at first time buyers who live or work in the borough, along with keyworkers or armed forces personnel.

Novus Apartments comprises a collection of studio suites, one and two-bedroom apartments in Slough. It is the latest collection of homes to be delivered by SUR.

The homes enjoy a central location, situated within easy walking distance of both the train station and the town centre. The homes, which are highly specified, are now ready to move in to.

SUR says every home at Novus Apartments has been built to a high specification, with Symphony kitchens and contemporary bathroom suites as standard. Amtico flooring is included in all living areas and fitted wardrobes are installed in all master bedrooms.

Prices for the one-bedroom apartments available through First Homes start from £178,500. The two-bedroom apartments available through First Homes start from £232,750. Prices include the 30 per cent discount.
