Peterlee Extra Care Development

The land forms part of the former Eden Community Primary School site and has been vacant since the school closed in 2008.

Extra care housing is designed for people with health needs or disabilities who don’t want to move into residential or nursing homes.

The sites typically include self-contained homes which have support services to help residents live independently.

In Peterlee, the new facility would include 54 one-bedroom and 17 two-bedroom apartments and several communal facilities.

In addition, there will be communal areas and gardens, hairdresser and a café/restaurant which will be available for local people to use, to encourage neighbourhood integration community development.

Robson Avenue Development 

Across the road, Vistry Partnerships North East are working with Believe Housing, on an £8 million project creating 67 properties – mostly for affordable rent – 25 of which will be available through the Government backed ‘Rent to Buy Scheme’.  This includes homes in greatest demand, such as bungalows, with some specially adapted for wheelchair users and those with mobility challenges.
