Persimmon has been active in the Suffolk market for several years, with its developments in the county previously managed as part of its Persimmon Homes Anglia region, which relocated earlier this year from Oulton Broad, near Lowestoft, to Norwich.

The new Persimmon Homes Suffolk region, the group’s 30th, will be based at Great Blakenham, with the team led by director Simon Wood.

He said: “We are delighted to be launching Persimmon Homes Suffolk, which represents a significant economic boost to the county. “The establishment of this business will bring new homes to towns where they are needed, along with up to 30 new office-based jobs and hundreds more across its developments.

“Furthermore, there will be genuine benefits for the communities in which we work. This includes significant contributions towards education, new roads and healthcare to name but a few.”

In addition, from January, charities and community groups in Suffolk will be able to benefit from the Persimmon’s Community Champions scheme, with two charities in the county being selected each month to receive up to £1,000 each.

Mr Wood added: “We are very proud of our Community Champions scheme, which has already helped hundreds of good causes across the UK. I know there are many, many good causes in Suffolk and I look forward to looking through all of the applications each month.”
