Northumberland to receive £1m boost from homebuilder
Newcastle-based homebuilder Bellway is set to invest than £1m into the Northumberland community as part of a Morpeth development.
The housing developer plans to contribute £585k for affordable homes with a further £594k to be invested in local schools.
The investment was part of a deal with Northumberland County Council, which granted planning permission for the Taylors Wynd development, situated on the site of a former council office and education complex at Hepscott Park, south of Morpeth.
Taylors Wynd, which will be comprised of four-bedroom detached homes, aims to provide rural family housing within reach of major roads for travel to nearby towns and cities.
Tracey Brady, managing director for Bellway North East, said: “A lovely new community is already forming at Taylors Wynd.
“We’re delighted that we’re able to give back and enhance the local area further with investment.
“Our contribution to off-site affordable homes will help local people buy a home in Northumberland while our investment in education will be a great financial boost for local schools.”
