£43 million Hummersea Hills development in Loftus nears completion following final handover

Friday 8 March 2024


Our £43 million Hummersea Hills development in Loftus is nearing completion following the handover of the last 8 new homes.

The final £15 million phase of this scheme, delivered in partnership with Esh Construction and with additional funding of £4,992,000 from Homes England, now completes the delivery of 128 homes comprising one, two, three and four-bedroom houses, one and two-bedroom apartments and one, two and three-bedroom bungalows.

The development includes 73 new homes for affordable rent, and 12 for Rent to Buy through our sales company, Viola Homes.

Also part of this development phase is The View, the latest scheme from the successful ‘Redcare’ partnership between Beyond Housing and Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, established to provide bespoke homes with care and support for eligible people from across Redcar and Cleveland. The View includes 43 homes for flexible supported living provided with care and support services from the community.

The flexible supported living scheme delivers against the ‘Meeting people’s needs’ priority in the council’s corporate plan and complements its other investment in Loftus.

In addition, Esh Construction donated £30,000 towards the development of a community woodland walk near to the Hummersea Hills development and delivered more than 360 apprentice training weeks through Efficiency North’s EN:Able Futures programme. The woodland project was supported and delivered by a number of partners including Beyond Housing, Loftus Town Council, and Groundwork NE & Cumbria.

Clare Harrigan, Director of Development at Beyond Housing, said: “We are delighted to have worked with Esh Construction in delivering this transformative and strategically important development. The scheme is now providing a range of much-needed affordable new homes with a choice of tenures for all customers including those with support needs.”

Mark Binns, Operations Director at Esh Construction, said: “A lot of hard work and dedication from all parties has enabled us to reach this stage. The delivery of affordable homes, and its flexible living scheme, will make a huge difference to the local community, while the wider woodland project enables residents to reconnect with nature.”
