Award-winning housebuilder Story Homes is marking its 10th North East development with approval granted to build 66 new homes at Station Road, Longhoughton.

The application was given the green light by Northumberland County Council, with construction due to start on site this spring.

The development, named Chancel Place, will feature a collection of two, three and four bedroom family homes, including some affordable properties. 

Managing Director for Story Homes North East, Ian Worgan, said: “2017 is already proving to be a busy and successful year for Story Homes in the North East. Just four years after launching our first development in the region, Chancel Place will bring us to 10 sites across County Durham, Teesside, North Tyneside and Northumberland.

“With more than 300 homes sold in the North East, we pride ourselves on building high quality homes in areas where people want to live. Longhoughton is a great example of this, with all of the benefits of rural living combined with excellent transport links to Newcastle and Edinburgh. We expect it to be very popular.”

The scheme is set to create job opportunities for local people and businesses in the area, including in the supply chain and subcontractors.

Construction will start on site at Chancel Place within a few weeks, with the first homes due to be released early summer 2017.
