A housebuilder aims to help address the shortfall in provision of new homes in Yorkshire, as the national shortfall of properties is predicted to top one million by 2022.In direct contrast to that, and to support initiatives to increase productivity, housebuilder Miller Homes has outlined ambitious growth plans in its Yorkshire region.It will increase its construction rate in the next two years to meet a target of constructing 600+ homes by 2020.“Many businesses feel revitalised at the beginning of a new year and these visions are short lived - we are merely continuing with focus and determination to ensure the delivery of our growth plans which began in 2017,” said Steve McElroy, the sales director of Miller Homes Yorkshire.“With four further sites due to be unveiled in 2018, we aim to increase developments across the region by the end of this year in a wide variety of locations, to support buyers in rural and more urban communities.”The housebuilder currently has 10 developments and a portfolio of two, three, four and five bedroom homes.Many of the developments make contributions to facilities in the community such as play areas, educational facilities and transport infrastructure.In 2017 significant investments were made by the housebuilder in Yorkshire through Section 106 contributions.“We have some exciting new developments in the pipeline and our team behind the scenes are working hard to complete land purchases, ground works and preparations before build begins, and we open our sales centres and show homes,” said Steve.“To facilitate this growth plan we are investing in staff, providing quality training and personal development to ensure we make a difference to our customers’ house buying journeys.”The housebuilder has recently released its online reservation option, to offr an alternative to traditional methods.It permits prospective customers to reserve available plots from the comfort of their own home.Further information about this or new development sites in the region can be found by visiting
