Taylor Wimpey makes Usworth start

The housebuilder has begun work on Stoneridge Hall, a 190-home development on the northern edge of the village close to Sunderland.

The development, which will deliver a range of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes has been designed to provide a range of options to appeal to first time buyers and families, Taylor Wimpey said.

TW will build the scheme out on a former comprehensive school site.

As part of its planning agreement with Sunderland City Council, Taylor Wimpey is investing £1.2m in the local community under a Section 106 agreement. This includes £1m towards education and around £260,000 towards sport and recreation improvements.

Mark Fletcher, land and planning director at Taylor Wimpey North East, said: “We are so pleased to have started the construction of our Stoneridge Hall development in Usworth.

“The development will not only provide residents from around Sunderland and Tyne and Wear with a great selection of homes, but it will also offer great commutable routes into Newcastle and Sunderland. As one of the largest housebuilders in the UK, we are committed to building more than homes by making sure that we add social, economic and environmental value to the wider communities that we operate in.”
