Places for People is building 66 affordable homes in South Shields (GB)

Places for People has set out to bring more homes to South Shields in Tyne and Wear. Located on Lord Nelson Street, this development is being built in partnership with South Tyneside Council and Keepmoat. It will provide a wide range of new homes available for social rent. 


The new development on Lord Nelson Street will deliver 66 affordable, social rent new homes, comprising a mix of 38 three-bedroom homes, and 28 two-bedroom homes. There will be three different house types which will be suitable for a range of residents.



Nilam Buchanan, Regional Managing Director, Central and North at Places for People, comments: “We are working hard to address local housing needs in this region, and we feel that we are making a real difference to communities across the North East. We are a placemaker that can be trusted by local residents to deliver in-demand homes that are exceptional and only enhance the already thriving areas. It’s rewarding to know that we are only building on this portfolio and that there are likely to be further exciting opportunities to come.


Stuart Wright, Director of Place & Communities at South Tyneside Council, said: “This development will help breathe new life into this neighbourhood by replacing outdated council stock that was no longer fit for purpose for the kind of modern accommodation that families desire. The properties will be managed by one of our trusted partners, Places for People, and be for social rent, really boosting the affordable housing offer in the area.


Ian Worgan, Regional Managing Director for Keepmoat North East, said: “We are thrilled to be working with South Tyneside Council and Places for People to deliver much-needed housing in South Shields. In addition to delivering high-quality new homes, Keepmoat is committed to developing thriving partnerships that prioritise creating much-needed affordable homes for local people. At Keepmoat we believe homes are much more than just bricks and mortar, and we’re committed to supporting Places for People in its mission to create a fantastic new community in South Shields. We’re excited to get started on the development and build homes for people locally.’’
