The 60-acre site includes townhouses, apartments and single storey living and is located just 10 minutes from Skegness’ vibrant beach front.

The development has also led to further investment and development in the area with shops, a café, a community centre and the new Skegness Academy which were recently built next to Lumley Fields.

Manorcrest Homes, which has delivered high-profile schemes across Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire, began works on the Lumley development in 2008 and has so far built 375 homes.

Director of Manorcrest Homes, Dean Wann, said: “As Skegness-based developers we recognised the need for more homes in area. Lumley Fields is a huge project which provides a great deal of jobs to the local area and it’s fantastic we have reached this milestone on a development that has proven popular with buyers from the outset.

“We are proud to be delivering homes in this great location and myself and the rest of the team continue to enjoy seeing the Lumley Fields community grow.”

Over the course of the next nine years, Manorcrest Homes aims to deliver over 40 homes each year at Lumley Fields.

Leigh Hall, also a director at Manorcrest Homes, continues: “Lumley Fields is our flagship site and an important development in Skegness, having been a catalyst for further commercial development in the area.

“Our homes are always appointed to the highest standard which our customers enjoy and I’m looking forward to seeing the completed development.”

Manorcrest Homes is currently developing a number of sites across Lincolnshire and is actively looking to acquire further sites across the country.
