Work starts on £3 million Whitley Bay housing development, bringing 50 jobs

Work is progressing on a £3m executive housing development near Whitley Bay which has created 50 jobs.

Brims Homes, a division of Sunderland-based Brims Construction, is building the 14-home scheme on Station Road, Seaton Delaval for Eland Homes.

Designed by fellow Sunderland-firm Fitz Architects, the development consists of 12 detached and two semi-detached homes and follows the demolition of the previous property on the site.

Stephen Treanor director of Eland Homes, said: “There is a pressing need for new family homes of this type in the area and Northumberland County Council recognised this when approving the plans.

“The development features seven attractive house types, which is unique in itself, with most facing south, overlooking open fields.”

The bespoke estate encompasses six four-bedroom detached homes, six three-bed detached homes and two three-bed semi-detached homes.

Richard Wood, director at Brims Homes, which was established last year, said: “This is an attractive development and highlights the quality of schemes which Brims Homes is becoming involved with.

“As well as providing much-needed new family housing it is supporting 50 jobs and boosting the local economy.”

The developers have agreed to modify the existing mini roundabout adjacent to the site to four-lanes from three, and renovate an on-site Second World War Pill Box.

The development is due to be completed in May and is registered under the Help to Buy Scheme. The houses will have the benefit of a 10 year warranty and are being sold as freehold properties.
