Blaydon, Tyneside

A £1.7million affordable homes scheme in Blaydon, Tyneside, thanks to a partnership between Yuill Homes and Isos Housing.

Leading North East housebuilder Yuill Homes will deliver 15 affordable homes at its successful High View housing development off Shibdon Bank. The scheme for Isos Housing will include six new two bedroom and nine three bedroom homes for rent which will be allocated to people in the greatest housing need.

Part funded with an investment from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), each new home at the development will be built to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 Standards helping residents to keep their energy bills affordable.

Stephen Jackson, head of partnership development at Yuill Homes, said: “There is a real demand for quality affordable housing on Tyneside. This scheme will provide a mixture of well-crafted contemporary homes to rent for the individuals and families who need them.”
