Normanby to get 105 homes with new £16m development

A £16m development is set to bring 105 new homes to High Farm in Normanby, Teeside.

Leading UK homebuilder, Keepmoat Homes, will deliver two, three and four bedroom homes to the area, 98 of which will be for open market sale and 7 made available for affordable rent and shared ownership in partnership with Thirteen Housing Group.

Work on the site, which is being purchased by Keepmoat from the Collins Family, is planned to begin in the next few months and the first homes are expected to be available to move in to at the beginning of 2019.

The work at High Farm follows on from Keepmoat’s highly successful £30m development at The Closes in Redcar where the homebuilder has built and successfully sold nearly 300 new homes.

Ian Prescott, Land & Partnerships Director at Keepmoat Homes in the North East, said:

“It has been a delight to work in partnership with the Collins family to make this happen. We’re proud at Keepmoat to offer high quality, beautiful homes at prices people can afford and we are excited to now be bringing this to Normanby.”

“We also specialise in helping first-time buyers, with 69% of our homes sold to people taking their first steps on to the property ladder, which will benefit people in Redcar and Middlesbrough who want to become home-owners.”

Tony Collins led negotiations with Keepmoat Homes on behalf of the Collins family, he said:

“We felt that Keepmoat’s plan and product would suit the already very successful High Farm area. The site is adjacent to a recently completed Taylor Wimpey development and we are very pleased to have implemented this next phase.”

The site is ideally close to a number of facilities and is across from the Skippers Lane retail park, which hosts different shops and amenities. The new development will also have open spaces and a play area, making it ideal for families.

Sharon Thomas, Thirteen’s director of new homes, said:

“We’re pleased to be working alongside Keepmoat and partners to offer affordable homes for rent and buy in part with shared ownership on this fantastic development in Normanby.”

“It’s in an ideal location, close to shops and other great facilities, and these new homes will transform the neighbourhood by creating a lovely place where families and people of all ages want to live.”

“It has something for everyone, and we’re proud to be part of this exceptional development.”

Keepmoat will be working closely with the surrounding communities as the development progresses, which will include providing work placements for students and supporting local groups and charities. The homebuilder was recently awarded the ‘Heart of the Community’ award at the North East Business Awards (held in association with the North East England Chamber of Commerce) for the range of diverse activities it is involved in and the impact the company has on the communities it works with.
