Barratt starts in Seaham

Alder Heights will see the housebuilder bring 64 homes to the seaside town four miles south of Sunderland.

Barratt Homes has now begun construction on the 64-property project, which will include two-, three- and four-bedroom homes.

The housebuilder has contributed more than £400,000 to the local area via the project’s Section 106 agreement.

This includes £152,000 for education, £128,000 on roadworks between the Ryhope and Doxford link and £64,000 on recreational facilities.

Other funding slugs will go to public transport, junction improvement works, Tunstall Road highway improvement works, allotments and biodiversity and ecological mitigation.

Barratt expects to open a sales office and show home in late summer.

Lewis Quinn, senior site manager, said: “We are very excited to begin work at our brand new development in Sunderland. We’ve seen fantastic success with our homes in the area previously, which makes it a really exciting time for us to continue delivering high quality homes to the people of Sunderland.”
