Learn about our plans for an exciting new community in Usworth

We are seeking planning permission from Sunderland City Council and other key stakeholders to develop plans for an exciting new community in Usworth, Washington.

Our proposals include 208 homes including 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes offering a range to appeal to first time buyers and families. There will also be 15% affordable homes including discounted market value homes for local people and homes to rent through social housing. 

The development proposal has been sympathetically designed to ensure that we compliment the character of the surrounding area and homes.

Development Map

Master Plan

We want to create a thriving new community in Usworth. The site is located to the Northern edge of the Village of Usworth was formerly occupied by Usworth Comprehensive School, which was demolished in 2007. 


The North Eastern section of the school site has subsequently been developed to provide Sunderland College, Washington, with the remaining area to the East and South making up this proposed development site.

The Sunderland Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) has identified a clear demand for the provision of larger 3+ bedroom detached dwellings within Washington and we believe our proposed development will help meet this demand. The development will also help facilitate the introduction of new local amenities and facilities, as well as the enhancement of existing ones that otherwise could not be provided or sustained.

Street scenes

The appearance of the new homes will be reflective of the local area and we’ll use locally sourced materials to ensure the development is in keeping with existing houses nearby.
The site is proposed for development as residential housing with associated gardens, landscaping, parking and roadways. The development proposal has been sympathetically designed to ensure that we compliment the character of the surrounding area,  with strong emphasis on fitting in with existing dwellings.        

Homes proposed

We propose a range of designs with 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes available.      
Designed in keeping with the surrounding area, our homes will come with associated gardens and landscaped areas.
