The quality affordable homes for rent were built in partnership with housebuilders Esh Group and the Homes and Communities Agency.

Construction work at Heddon Close began in August 2015 on the six properties, which are a mixture of two-bedroomed houses and apartments.

The properties are managed by The Gateshead Housing Company on behalf of Keelman Homes Limited.

Development and Investment Manager Amanda Gallagher said: “Providing quality affordable housing is very important to us, so we are very excited about the new homes and the difference we hope they will make to local communities.”
