Miller Homes has announced plans to build over 700 new homes across the North East this year, with over 400 homes planned for the North of the region and almost 300 across developments in the Tees Valley.
This figure will see the homebuilder almost double the number of homes completed in the region last year, responding to increased demand for new homes since the pandemic began.
This year will see the launch of six new developments in Pelton, Peterlee, Blyth, Hartlepool, Darlington and Ingleby Barwick, improving communities thanks to contributions to local infrastructure, as well as affordable housing at each new development.
Patrick Arkle, regional managing director at Miller Homes North East, said: “We pride ourselves on the quality of our homes and the desirable locations in which we build them, so are pleased to be bringing more and more great places to live in the region each year.”
Purchasing land to build further new homes is also high on the agenda, especially across the Tees Valley, an area which is key to Miller Homes’ continued investment strategy.
Mark Bayliss, regional operations director at Miller Homes Teesside, added: “We have ambitious growth plans and the demand from North East buyers is there, especially in areas that will see further economic growth like Tees Valley, thanks to announcements in the latest Budget like the Freeport bringing new jobs and opportunity.”
