Newton Aycliffe residents see in the new year in a new home

The Advertiser Series: Greenwood Court is a new £2m housing development in Newton Aycliffe Greenwood Court is a new £2m housing development in Newton Aycliffe

THE New Year is off to a great start for residents at a new £2m housing development in County Durham.

Social housing landlord and communities organisation livin completed Greenwood Court in Newton Aycliffe at the end of last year to ensure tenants could move into their new homes in time for Christmas.

And with the festivities now over, the new residents are settled and could not be happier.

Greenwood Court resident Christina Pearson said: “This is our first home together since getting married and we really couldn’t wait to move in.

“The children love it here and the house is really warm and cosy. We’ve hardly had the heating on, it really feels like home.”

The development, which stands on the site of the former Greenfields Nursing Home, comprises 11 two-bedroom and 11 three-bedroom homes.

The properties were rented out through the Durham Key Options choice based lettings scheme and boast a range of energy saving features.

It was built in partnership with the Government’s Homes and Community Agency and house-building group Galliford Try and is part of a £28m investment project by livin.

I hope its not as rigged as Westminster City Council CBL bidding system. Check out Lavington Buildings on Ogle Street; Westminster City Council Housing Options advertised 15 or 16 brand new flats with high finish on Choice Based Lettings flyer. The flats got advertised on the CBL lettings flyers but who got to bid on them? well, that's a good question, because when you logged into the system to bid most of the flats weren't on the system! As it happens the bidding results have not been published. This is a common occurrence in Westminster City Council's Housing Options property listings. The flats just trickle down someone's pockets. I won several bids to date for a flat through Westminster Council CBL system, but was not even invited for a viewing. The flats disappeared. For all people's sake I hope County Durham is more honest than Westminster..
