Residents can see Kibblesworth’s future.
Residents on a south Gateshead estate have been invited to attend an event later this week to find out more about £14m of developments in their area.
The drop-in sessions for people living in Kibblesworth will be held at the village’s Millennium Centre this Thursday (25 November) from 9.30am to 11am; 2pm to 3.30pm; and 6pm to 7pm.
The first of nearly 150 new homes were recently completed on the estate, and now over 300 residents have been invited to view plans of future building works.
Keelman Homes – a subsidiary of The Gateshead Housing Company – will build the majority of the new homes with overall site constructor Keepmoat.
Thirteen homes will also be offered for ‘intermediate rent’ – a unique and flexible way for first-time buyers to get on the housing ladder.
Residents who come to the event can meet their on site team, view samples of kitchen and bathrooms for new homes and get information about a career in the building industry.
The Gateshead Housing Company’s Chief Executive, Bill Fullen, said: “We have already made improvements to thousands of homes through our Decent Homes programme – with less than 1,000 out of almost 22,000 now needing work done.
“We are now literally building on our previous success, through this first scheme to bring new affordable homes to Gateshead for generations to come.”
