Bellway to deliver 1,100-plus North East homes in 2023

Construction work on all homes at seven developments in the region will complete this year, said the housebuilder.

Bellway said that building work is nearing the final stages at Arcot Manor in Cramlington, Moorfields in Killingworth and Burdon Rise in Ryhope.

To those can be added Havannah Park in Hazlerigg, Ottermead at Jameson Manor, The Listed at Ottermead in Ponteland and at Northdene in North Shields.

Across these projects, Bellway’s financial contributions to local facilities and infrastructure exceeds £8m.

Bellway North East sales director Emma Chesterton said: “The hard work of the whole Bellway North East team – from our construction and sales teams on site to everyone at our headquarters in Gateshead – has helped us get to the point where we are nearing completion of seven developments across the region.

“With our roots in the region, we are committed to significant investment in housing and infrastructure across Newcastle and the wider North East.”

Breakdown of projects:

  • Ascot Manor, Cramlington: 226 homes, £1.9m in local infrastructure
  • Havannah Park, Hazlerigg, 224 homes, £2.2m towards local services including education, healthcare, roads and wildlife
  • Moorfields, Killingworth, 336 homes provided by Bellway, with subsidiary Ashberry Homes continuing work on a further 91 homes at Moorfields View. £900,000 for schools, roads, healthcare and parks
  • Ottermead and The Listed, at the former Northumbria Police HQ site off North Road. Ottermead at Jameson Park consists of 184 homes, while The Listed comprises 22 restored grade two-listed Arts and Crafts-style properties. The contribution is £1.5m
  • Northdene in North Shields: 75 new homes to transform a disused former reservoir site, with £460,000 in contributions for primary schools, parks, play areas, sports facilities, playing pitches, allotments, wildlife and employment and training
  • Burdon Rise in Ryhope: 109 new four and five-bedroom houses, with £1.5m invested in affordable housing, primary schools, play equipment, ecology and habitats, and roads.

Chesterton added: “We are not just building houses, we are creating a real sense of place and a sense of community at our developments. Bellway’s funding will not only benefit the new residents at these developments, but also people living in the wider community.”
