Chapter Homes has advised it will be investing a significant amount to boost the local economy through its local suppliers commitment by hiring North East based businesses where possible.

The firm, which is based in Durham is building its first development in Eden Field, Newton Aycliffe. The commitment to the use of local suppliers means Chapter Homes will put funds that may ordinarily go to larger firms back into the local economy.

Chapter Homes has already had success working with local suppliers and has extended its commitment to smaller firms, such as Weardale Carpets.

Richard Roddam, Development Director of Chapter Homes said: “Chapter Homes is committed to helping the local economy. It’s a Durham-based business which exclusively builds in County Durham, so it’s important that the company supports regional businesses when possible. The North East is a fantastic place for the construction industry, as its roots are in building and developing. I am pleased to have the opportunity to help the area thrive.”

Wayne Hindmarsh, the Owner of Weardale Carpets, said: “I think it’s fantastic that Chapter Homes has made this commitment to employ North East suppliers. It’s a really big investment in the local economy to guarantee the survival of local businesses. I want to thank Chapter Homes for thinking about the region when choosing suppliers. It’s a brilliant thing to do, and more developers should do the same.”
