    £3.35m County Durham sustainable supported housing development set to begin

    A £3.35m development providing sustainable, flexible housing to support independent living for people with learning disabilities is nearing the final stages of approval in County Durham.

    The specialist supported housing development at Harelaw, Annfield Plain, which will be the first of its kind in the county, has been made possible through partnership working between Durham County Council, NHS County Durham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), North of England Commissioning Support, NHS England, and housing provider Choice Support.

    The new eco-friendly specialist development, which will feature air source heat pumps and green roofs in addition to other sustainable features, to help reduce the carbon footprint of the build, is being funded by an NHS England capital grant allocation in line with the delivery of The NHS Plan.
