Karl Hick, chief executive of Larkfleet Homes, said: “We are operating across a wider area and building more houses on more sites than we have ever done before.

“The new land purchases with which we are starting this year will open up new opportunities for building reasonably-priced, high quality homes in mostly rural locations where we can help local people get onto the housing ladder.

“We will be starting work on all of these sites within weeks and we are actively looking for additional sites on which we can start building later in the year or in 2019.”
