Story Homes hands properties over to housing association to boost Sedgefield’s affordable housing supply
A North East housing association has received the keys to six new affordable homes on Story Homes’ Sedgefield development, St Edmund’s Manor.
North Star Housing Group is helping to increase the affordable housing stock for local people by providing new build properties for rent. These new homes include two-bedroom terraced houses and bungalows.
North Star is a group of housing associations operating across the North East and North Yorkshire. It builds and rents high quality affordable housing to meet a variety of needs, including specialist supported housing. North Star is committed to creating homes and building futures as well as investing in people at every level.
Sarah Fawcett, Head of Development for North Star, said: “We are delighted to have acquired these properties, which are part of a wider prestigious development by Story Homes. We have been very impressed with the high quality of the properties handed over to us, and we have had great interest from local people looking to rent an affordable property in this desirable location. The new homes have proven so attractive that all six homes are now occupied.”
Allan Thompson, managing director for Story Homes in the North East, commented: “This is the first time we have worked with North Star, and we are pleased to have been able to contribute towards increasing the affordable housing available in Sedgefield. This is something that is very important to us as a builder of new homes, and many of our developments include an element of affordable housing.
“St Edmund’s Manor has proved very popular so far due to its location and the superior specification of the homes, and we look forward to more residents from the local community moving onto this high quality development.”
