Two Castles deliver affordable housing in Northumberland

Published:  06 August, 2012

BELLINGHAM: Two Castles Housing Association has started work on a £1.7 million affordable housing development for local people in Bellingham, Northumberland.

The development, which is being part-funded by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) with support from Northumberland County Council, will deliver 13 new affordable homes for people who are in the greatest housing need with a connection to the village or local area.

Due to be completed by May 2013, the development called Bridgeford View is being built on land adjacent to existing Two Castles’ properties at Briar Hill in the North East of the village and will include five, two bedroom bungalows as well as a selection of two, three and four bedroom homes for rent.

The Bridgeford View development is being built in partnership with Newman Developments to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 standards. It will be constructed to reflect existing properties in the village, using traditional building materials such as natural slate roofs as well as stone elevations and rendered walls.
