Multi-million-pound County Durham scheme to deliver over 100 affordable homes

Plans for a development of new homes in a County Durham village have been given the green light.

Hailed as a “welcome boost” for local housing stock, the move will see developer Karbon Homes move ahead with plans to build 104 affordable homes on the site of the former Roseberry Sports Community College in Pelton to the north of Chester-le-Street.

This will include 53 rent-to-buy properties with their own private amenity space to the rear, as part of a significant investment project together with 31 apartments and eight bungalows for the over 50s living sector.

More than 100 car parking spaces for residents along with 47 parking spots for visitors will also feature alongside new landscaping and access roads.

The multi-million-pound scheme comes as the Government continues to push for the delivery of new properties to meet the “chronic housing shortage” and arrest the decline in the affordability of home ownership. It also wants to relieve the pressure on the social rented sector, which has prompted the growth in private renting.
