MPSL has undertaken 3 new contracts for Persimmon, working closely with the leading national housebuilder's divisional contacts to secure work in Cheshire, Lancashire and Yorkshire.

Last year, the national supplier of complete solutions to the construction industry was contracted to work for Persimmon on a 40-acre development in Newcastle under Lyme. The proposed work included liaison with the regional environment agency to design using various SUDS (sustainable urban drainage systems) on the site adjoining Pool Dam marshes.

Since being awarded the Pool Dam contract, MPSL has also picked up work for Persimmon for a planned development on Candle Lane on the edge of the village of Woore. The work, which will require the services of both of MPSL's divisions - Planning & Design and Civil Engineering - will again include SUDS where appropriate ground conditions allow.

Of the 57 properties, 40% of the homes are expected to be affordable housing in this rural area. The mix will include a varied range of properties from 4-bedroom detached family homes to a selection of smaller bespoke mews properties.

MPSL will also be working with Persimmon on Edge Lane, Nelson in Lancashire on a series of properties to be refurbished in what is a conservation area.

In Yorkshire, MPSL Civil Engineering has been contracted to carry out flood risk studies at a new site planned at Irby near Skipton. Peter Sykes, Managing Director of MPSL Civil Engineering comments: "It's great that both of our divisions are building a strong relationship with such a known name. Persimmon is respected for its sympathetic approach to the environments in which it builds and its strong focus, at a local level, upon community.

"We're delighted that our work with this housebuilder is taking on a larger geographical spread and we also welcome the diversity of these 3 specific jobs."
