House builder Livin is investing over £7.2 million in a new development that will provide 47 new homes for rent at Travellers and Clarence Green in Newton Aycliffe.
The investment will see a mix of two-bedroom bungalows and two, three and four-bedroom houses delivered, bringing the total number of new homes in the locality up to 65.
The bungalows are being designed to help people with mobility problems to live more independently, whilst also offering high space standards and thermal efficiency.
Livin’s construction partner on the project is Tolent who will commence work on the site in March this year.
Andrew Kitchen, head of development at Livin, 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.”
Chris Price, regional director at Tolent, added: “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 the additional homes will be available for rent by May 2021.
