£1.4 Million Set to be Invested in Burdon, Sunderland, as First Phase of Brand New Housing Development Begins

Leading housebuilder, Barratt Developments North East, has launched the first phase of its Doxford Green development in Burdon, Sunderland.

Barratt Developments North East, which comprises the Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes brands, has begun the first phase of development at its David Wilson Homes Doxford Green site, which is set to bring 60 homes to the area. The housebuilder is also progressing with plans to bring an additional 158 homes to the area at a later date which will make up phases two and three at the Doxford Green site.

Located just four miles away from Sunderland city centre, within easy reach of the coast  and surrounded by scenic open fields, the David Wilson Homes site will offer a collection of four and five bedroom detached homes, designed with modern family life in mind.

The housebuilder has revealed that as part of its Doxford Green development in Burdon, they have plans to contribute £1.4 million to the area as part of its S106 agreement. The funds will go towards education and recreation facilities, in addition to allotments, public transport improvements, road work improvements, and more.

Neil Milburn, Land and Development Director commented: “We’re extremely excited to be launching the first phase of our Doxford Green development and provide much needed quality homes for people house hunting in the area. Within 4 miles from Sunderland’s city centre, and ideal for the coast, Burdon is an idyllic location for families as it offers both city life and coastal escapes. We’re pleased to be able to offer buyers even more choice by building a collection of both Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes.”
