Major construction work to begin at Churchfields in Doxford Park

  • 24th October 2019

We’re delighted to announce that we’re set to begin major construction work on the final phase of the Doxford Park regeneration project, with 100 new homes to be built at our forthcoming ‘Churchfields’ development off Mill Hill Road in Sunderland.

Work will begin in the coming weeks, with 90 homes being made available for market sale, two homes available to purchase at discount market value and eight homes available for affordable rent. The site will feature a mix of two, three, four and five bedroom properties.

The new development is adjacent to our hugely popular ‘Thurcroft’ development and the existing open space will be closed off to the public as part of major construction work.

In addition to this, the existing underpass that connects the Churchfields site with ‘Balmore’ on the opposite side of the road, will be permanently closed and blocked off to the public. A new pedestrian crossing will be installed across Mill Hill Road in place of the underpass.

As part of Section 106 obligations, we will make a £400,000 contribution to Sunderland City Council, providing funding for improvements to local educational facilities and the protection of coastal sites within the city.

Anthony Lowther, Managing Director at Gentoo Homes, said:

“We’re excited to build on the success of previous phases in the Doxford Park redevelopment and have already received a significant level of interest in the homes at Churchfields.”
