Gleeson launches development of 205 homes
Gleeson Homes has launched a development of 205 homes in Chopwell.
The development, Moorland Green, will be made up of traditionally built two, three and four-bedroom homes.
The first homes were put up for sale on 15 of January, with prices starting at £104,995 for a two-bedroom semi-detached home.
Additionally properties will be released for sale throughout 2021.
According to Gleeson Homes, as a result of the Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme, many of the properties in Moorland Green will cost less than local rent levels.
As Moorland Green is in a protected wildlife and nature zone, Gleeson will be contributing £140,000 towards local ecology and tree protection.
In addition, a sum of £83,350 will also be donated towards traffic signalling and improving local roads around the new development.
Ed Alder, operations director at Gleeson, said: “We are delighted to be bringing these much-needed new homes to Gateshead; at the heart of the community the new homes at Moorland Green will be ideal for local people, including young, first time buyers and low to mid income families, helping them gain the opportunity to make their first steps onto the property ladder.
“Working with the local planners, we will ensure that local ecology and green space is preserved, protected, and can flourish meaning that residents of Moorland Green and surrounding neighbourhoods will live in a picturesque area for many years to come.”
