Gleeson Gets Green Light for New Homes in Birtley

Gleeson has now received planning permission from Gateshead Council to build 63 brand new homes just off Portobello Road in Birtley. Construction of the new homes on the Windermere Green development will begin shortly with the first properties released for sale in early summer.

The development will include a spacious mix of 2, 3, and 4 bedroom semi and detached homes which all feature a driveway or garage. The new homes will be priced to suit local buyers with a range of schemes available to get first time buyers onto the property ladder including Help to Buy.

As well as bringing new homes to the area, Gleeson will roll out their Community Matters Programme and are now looking for a local junior sports team to sponsor as part of their Sports Foundation plus applications from local young people who are interested in the Gleeson Apprenticeship Scheme.

Ed Alder Regional Director said “We are delighted that Gateshead Council approved our plans to bring Gleeson Homes to Birtley.  We price our homes to suit local buyers and look forward to welcoming the first residents to the development later this year.”
