Gentoo, the biggest provider of new homes in Sunderland, has been given the go-ahead to build 312 new homes across the city.
Sunderland City Council’s Planning Committee has granted Gentoo planning permission for three developments, allowing the group to start work on sites in High Usworth in Washington, Coaley Lane in Houghton-le-Spring and Broomhill in Hetton-le-Hole.
At the new development in High Usworth, Gentoo will be building 56 new homes for sale, with a combination of semi-detached and detached three and four bedroomed homes.
At its new Coaley Lane development, Gentoo will be extending its existing popular Meadow View scheme with 128 new homes being built in addition to the 136 already under construction.
At its Broomhill site, Gentoo will be building 128 new homes consisting of two, three and four bedroomed homes, with a combination of homes for sale and for rent.
Gentoo’s Chairman, Ian Self, said: “We are delighted to have been given the go-ahead. On top of our significant existing development programme in the city, it shows that we are committed to delivering high quality new homes in sought after locations, across a variety of tenures, for the people of Sunderland.”
