While the homes are not yet complete, plots can still be reserved and bought off-plan.

Those looking to use the scheme, must satisfy a range of criteria, including having a maximum household income of no more than £80,000 and a deposit of at least five per cent.

This allows developers to offer homes 30 per cent lower than market value.

Chestnut Homes sales manager Helene Key said: “It’s no secret that the cost of living is taking its toll, but for those looking to take their first steps onto the property ladder, this is a particularly challenging time. That’s why we’re pleased to be bringing first-time buyers in the Boston area this fantastic opportunity to secure a house of their own for less, in a brilliant new neighbourhood.”

Any first-time buyers interested in the homes being built at Heron Park should contact [email protected] to book an appointment.
