Newcastle ALBM Phase 2

Following on from the success of Phase 1, the second phase of this work for Newcastle City Council will provide a further 199 dwellings for a range of people in the Newcastle area.

Built by contractor Tolent and developed using the council's successful Annuity Leaseback Model, the scheme will see a total of eight sites developed across the city to provide a mix of much needed affordable homes for people aged 55 and over or with specialist needs.

P+HS worked closely with the project team, developing the designs from the first phase of the project, incorporating feedback from the Fairer Housing Unit and best practice guidance for older age living and consulted widely to finalise house type proposals and layouts tailored to each site.
