£7.2million invested to build much needed homes for rent

Over £7.2 million is being invested by local housing provider Livin, in an additional  47 much needed homes for rent at Travellers and Clarence Green, Newton Aycliffe, bringing the total number of new homes in the locality to 65.

This new development will provide a mix of two bedroom bungalows and two, three and four bedroom houses. 

The bungalows will be designed to help people with mobility problems to live as independently as possible in a safe local community environment.  All homes will offer excellent space standards and high levels of thermal efficiency.

Andrew Kitchen, head of development said “This is brilliant news for the community as demand for homes of various types is continually high for this area of Newton Aycliffe.  We have factored in this demand in designing the property mix and we expect these homes to be very popular”

Livin’s construction partner Tolent will be building the new homes and work is due to commence in March 2020. 

Chris Price, regional director for Tolent, said: “We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with Livin as we work towards completing more quality homes across County Durham.” 

It is expected that homes will be available for rent by May 2021 and will be available to bid on Livin.co.uk and durhamkeyoptions.co.uk.  Anyone interested in renting these homes must firstly register with Durham Key Options.
