Local discounts for local people


Cornish developer Wycliffe Estates Ltd has launched its own brand of localism by offering the residents of Lostwithiel and surrounding area a discount on all 16 open-market properties at the Castle Hill site in the west of the town.

Development director Christopher Taylour is reducing the houses and apartments by between £4k and £6k if a reservation fee is received prior to building work starting in early 2012.

Taylour says that the discounts make sense for everybody. “I wanted to give local people first refusal to live in these excellent homes at a discount and of course from a developer perspective, reserved properties help reduce the overall risk of the project.”
