York Hill estate

About York Hill regeneration

We aim to breathe new life into York Hill, improving living standards for residents by creating modern living spaces to be proud of, whilst reviving community spirit and bringing people closer together. We also believe that improving the outside of homes and their surrounding environments has a huge impact on the outlook of the people living in them.  A comprehensive public consultation exercise with the residents of York Hill estate was carried out in 2015 and identified a need for significant improvements to properties, the environment and the community as a whole.

Exciting times lie ahead for York Hill...view our story so far below.

The three year project will see York Hill estate boast a variety of two and three bedroomed homes. These have been designed to meet local housing needs and aspirations, be environmentally friendly and energy efficient.  Homes are available :

  • For Rent -  to apply for a home to rent you need to have an active Durham Key Options application which you arrange at Durham Key Option.  Any available properties will be advertised through DKO and at livin.co.uk/yorkhill.

  • You may have seen in the local press Helen Goodman popped along to see first hand the works planned for York Hill.

    She said  “I was absolutely delighted to see the work beginning on the York Hill Estate to create new family homes to a very high standard and to make this a really nice place to live. This was one of the most positive developments I’ve seen in the past 12 months.”

    Alan Boddy (executive director of housing and business development)  and Vicky Miller (community regeneration manager) accompanied Helen around the site along with our contractors Mears to give her a flavour of what is to come.

    Alan Boddy, executive director of housing and business development said: “I am delighted to see phase one of this programme underway.  The properties are already generating interest and the estate has already improved.  We hope that by continuing to work alongside local community partners and community groups we can create a thriving and sustainable community.”
