Galliford Try to replace industrial units with affordable homes in North Tyneside

Galliford Try has begun work on a £5.5 million redevelopment project to replace disused units at Camperdown Industrial Estate with 40 affordable homes for Riverside Housing Group in North Tyneside.

The Silverbirch development on the edge of Killingworth village will comprise 36 two and three-bedroomed homes and four two-bedroomed bungalows.

The new homes, which are expected to be completed by Galliford Try Partnerships North East in May next year, will be available as shared ownership properties.

Sara Holmes, from Galliford Try Partnerships North East, said: “We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to work again with Riverside and North Tyneside Council, delivering a project that will improve the quality, choice and affordability of homes available to local people.

"Initiatives like this will form the foundations of the government’s programme to support the development of a million new homes by 2020.”
