Beyond Housing celebrates new shared ownership homes in Darlington

Beyond Housing is expanding its portfolio after taking handover of five new homes on the Coniscliffe Grange development near Darlington.

The five bungalows, which were marketed for sale on a shared ownership basis, have already been snapped up by eager buyers.

The Coniscliffe Grange development, comprising 37 new homes by Robertson Homes, has a riverside location in a much sought-after rural setting.

Beyond Housing’s £975,000 contract with Robertson Homes will see delivery of a further two bungalows, which will be made available for affordable rent, in March 2022.

Additional grant funding investment of £273,000 came from Homes England, a non-departmental public body that funds new affordable housing across the country.

Kelly Lemon, Beyond Housing Senior Project Manager, said: “We are delighted with this opportunity to work in partnership with Robertson Homes on this exciting rural development.

“It’s clear from the speed at which these top quality homes were purchased that the shared ownership option is providing a highly popular route onto the housing ladder for increasing numbers of people.

“The scheme is another illustration of our commitment to our ambitious objective of providing 2000 new homes by 2025.”
