Views on new homes wanted

24 May 2017 - Latest news

Willington residents have been invited to a public consultation event on plans for new affordable homes in their community.

believe housing has plans to build 16 homes on land in Railway Terrace to the north of Willington. The three bedroom homes would be available on a rent-to-buy scheme once completed.

Featuring high levels of insulation, the latest heating systems and double glazing; they are expected to bring big savings to tenants when compared with older homes, particularly those in the private rented sector.

The consultation event takes place on Wednesday, 31 May at Willington Methodist Church between 4pm and 6pm. Staff from believe housing will be on hand to talk about the project and show local residents detailed plans of the proposed new homes.

believe housing Head of Development and Commercial Property, Kate Abson, said: “These new homes could help to meet demand for high quality and affordable new homes in Willington. We want to hear what local people think about the proposals and to answer any questions they may have about the potential development.”

The development forms part of an overall 297 home new build programme by the group between the Tyne and Tees across a three year period. By 2020, believe housing will have invested £32m across 17 sites providing a significant boost to employment in the area.

“Our programme of new build houses right across the area is designed to help deliver affordable homes in the places where they’re really needed as well as providing a boost for communities and new jobs during construction.” Ms Abson added.
