Northumberland housing development aims to meet growing demand

Plans have been submitted for a new over 55s residential development in Northumberland to meet the needs of its aging population.

The Land Exchange Limited has put forward the proposal to build 10 new homes in Longhirst near Morpeth, to address a gap in the provision of housing for the elderly.

Baird, managing director of The Land Exchange Limited, explained: “It’s important that Northumberland addresses the challenge of an aging population and a lack of suitable housing.

“This development does exactly that. The Land Exchange Limited is committed to understanding and working closely with local people to make sure our developments meet local needs and enhance communities.”

Positioned around a central village green, the development will include two-bedroom stone bungalows as well as parking for residents and dog walkers.

Ronnie added: “Many developers want to build as many homes as possible, but that’s not the approach we take.

“The land at Longhirst could accommodate twice as many homes as we’re proposing but our aim is to create a high quality, sustainable development where people can enjoy their surroundings.”
