St. George Development
29 Jul 2015

Statement from Stephen McCoy, Managing Director with Galliford Try Partnerships North – parent company to Linden Homes North East.

“Site preparations are now well underway and we anticipate building work on the first phase of 119 new homes will commence in August. The development will deliver a mixture of high quality properties, ranging from two bedroomed apartments to five bedroomed executive houses.

“The aim is to integrate the new housing with the surrounding area, while enhancing existing natural features - including the adjacent Bluebell and Howburn Woods. The regeneration project will also provide significant public open space that will produce a housing development that is very different to anything else available in the area.

“Linden Homes’ track record of sympathetic design was a key factor in it being selected by the Homes and Communities Agency to develop this project and the company is employing leading architectural design consultants to develop properties that are unique to this site.”
