Esh Construction has unveiled plans for 50 affordable homes to be built in Jarrow, with an application now submitted to South Tyneside Council.
Developed in partnership with Karbon Homes, the proposed plans include a mix of two, three and four-bedroom houses, and two-bedroom flats.
The new homes are earmarked for land off Perth Avenue and Inverness Road which is allocated for residential development in South Tyneside Council’s emerging Local Plan. A multi-use games area, currently located to the east of site, will be renewed and relocated closer to the Perth Green Children’s Play Area as part of the plans.
Laura Devaney, Land and Partnerships Director at Esh Construction, said: “It has been recently publicised that over 40,000 households are on the waiting list for social housing throughout the North East, which means that bringing forward this type of development is crucial in order to reduce these numbers.
“We are pleased that plans how now been submitted for another scheme that, if approved, will deliver high quality affordable homes for local people.”
Each home will include individual gardens and private parking facilities. Elsewhere on the site the provision of a new Sustainable Urban Drainage System will help to reduce the risk of flooding in the area and new planting will be included to create habitats for wildlife.
Esh Construction has developed the £9 million scheme through its land led solution, working in partnership with Lichfields, CK21, Anthony Watson Architects, Elliott Associates and Homes England. Karbon Homes will take ownership of the properties upon completion.
Devaney added: “The development has been brought forward as part of our land led solution which aims to alleviate work for providers by allowing them to focus on viability and customer need, while we assess technical, design and construction detail. This is the second land led development that has been brought forward in partnership with Karbon Homes and I’d like to thank all parties for their involvement so far.”
