|Park homes "may ease housing crisis", says MP
Richard Bacon MP officially opens Masterman Park Homes' show home, watched by guests, including Neil Masterman and Peter Fox, managing director of Omar Homes.
SOUTH Norfolk MP Richard Bacon has praised Masterman Park Homes for providing Norfolk with fresh options for affordable housing.
Mr Bacon officially opened the company's new show home, the Masterman Special, at the head office of Masterman Park Homes in Wymondham. The Masterman Special is manufactured by Omar Homes, based in Brandon, Suffolk and is
one of the models available at Masterman's residential site, Redhill Park at Watton.
Mr Bacon said: "I was impressed with the amount of space and the high quality of the fittings and decoration which the accommodation offers. With 400,000 homeless people in the UK, park homes are an important option available to us when considering the issue of affordable housing."
Mr Bacon then toured the new show home which boasts a 45' x 20' floor plan, Georgian-style glazing, French doors and three bedrooms, one with en suite.
Neil Masterman, who runs Masterman Park Homes and Redhill Park was delighted to welcome Mr Bacon as was Peter Fox, managing director of Omar Homes. "More and more people are recognising the financial and community benefits of park home living," said Mr Fox. "It's a pleasure to be able to explain to Mr Bacon what park homes are all about. Neil Masterman and I were delighted to welcome him here."
Visually, park homes have very little difference in design to a traditionally built 'bricks & mortar' bungalow with the only real distinction being in the method of construction. Internally, they are fully equipped modern dwellings with sizeable living spaces, separate kitchen, fitted bathroom and two or three bedrooms.
Also present were Wymondham's Town Mayor Cllr Andrew Pond, Cllr Martin Wynne, Cllr John MacDonald and County Cllr Diana Hockaday.
