Golden Shovel Event at Our Selby Riccall Site

February 8, 2018

Together with Chair of the Selby and District Housing Trust and District Council Executive Member, Cllr. John Mackman, our Chief Executive, Martin Gerrelli, joined colleagues on site in Selby for a golden shovel celebration, to mark the launch on our Riccall new build site.   Cllr John Mackman, said;

"The joint vision of the Trust and the Council is to build and manage quality modern homes in the district. These are new affordable homes for families who need them, which also support the local construction industry and create new jobs."“And the quality of the homes we build is really important to us.  The homes that we built recently at Tadcaster have won awards for their standards, and we aim to deliver really good quality homes here at Riccall too.  The Housing Trust will manage these homes to offer high quality family homes for people in our area."
Martin Gerrelli, CEO of Starfish Group, added;
“Provision of sustainable housing is one of the greatest challenges facing national and local Government. The commitment of Selby District Council and the Housing Trust to develop garage sites for the provision of affordable housing in areas of high demand is both logical and innovative and we are delighted to be the construction partner to deliver the Riccall housing scheme. I am excited to participate in this launch event as we look forward to successfully completing this project as a potential precursor to other similar schemes in the Selby area”.
