Work begins on our £3 million affordable housing development in New Marske
Monday 28 January 2021
We’ve launched our new development scheme for 23 new homes in New Marske, for affordable rent.
The development site is located off Gurney Street in sought-after, rural New Marske. The project will consist of 23 new-build homes including two-bedroom bungalows and two and three-bedroom homes, all for affordable rent from March 2022.
Our £2.5 million contract with Gus Robinson Developments has additional funding of £1 million from Homes England, the non-departmental public body that funds new affordable housing across the country, to make the development project worth in excess of £3.5 million.
Elaine Dance, Assistant Project Manager at Beyond Housing, said: “At Beyond Housing we are committed to building quality homes in desirable neighbourhoods and the New Marske development should prove popular with our customers.
“We are pleased to be working with Gus Robinson Developments to deliver high-quality, affordable homes that contributes to our ambitious objective of creating 2,000 new homes by 2025.”
Steve Bell, managing director of Gus Robinson Developments, added: “This new partnership is an exciting milestone for us, as it’s our very first contract with Beyond Housing, which will see us deliver much needed affordable new homes in New Marske.
“It’s fantastic to see the scheme coming to life. Our design team have worked closely with residents over the last few months and we’ve listened to their feedback to ensure we deliver beautifully designed homes that meet the needs of local people.”
