Work begins on £27m development in County Durham

Keepmoat Homes has started work on a £27m development at Parkhill in Coxhoe, County Durham.


The scheme is set to deliver 190 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes.

The majority of the homes (152) will be for sale, 12 will be for shared ownership, while 26 will be available for rent through housing association Karbon Homes.

The region has forecasted that 30,000 new homes will be needed by 2033.

Richard Bass, regional managing director at Keepmoat Homes in the North East, said: “We are excited to be starting work at Parkhill.

“The area is great for families and first-time buyers, as it is close to all of the facilities in Coxhoe and easily commutable to Durham and Tyneside.

“We offer high-quality, beautiful homes at prices people can afford – with 72% of homes from Keepmoat sold to first-time buyers.

“As Durham has one of the highest levels of people using Help to Buy outside of London, our expertise in helping first-time buyers is sure to benefit the locality.”

Keepmoat is currently working with Coxhoe primary school on a poster project and is looking into having apprentices on the site.

“It’s important that we don’t just build homes, but create places where people want to live,” Richard added.

“As part of this, we invest in support and grow the communities we work in.”
