A house building firm with its foundations in Hartlepool is planning a bright future - with more jobs and more sites on the way.
Seneca Homes is already building 92 homes at Liberty Park, which is in King Oswy Drive, Hartlepool.
Our expansion plans are exciting for the next year. We have new developments at Coniscliffe Road, West Park, Hartlepool. Further developments are proposed for Hartlepool, Sunderland, Stockton and WynyardFay Garthwaite, Seneca Homes sales co-ordinator
The first residents have already arrived with Helen Auton first to reserve a spot and first to move in - all within the timescale that she gave birth to her baby boy William.
But Seneca Homes sales co-ordinator Fay Garthwaite explained how it was just one example of the company’s plans to create housing in the North East. The firm is also planning sites at Coniscliffe Road, in West Park, Hartlepool. It’s an executive development of 39 homes and the project will start in January.
Further developments are proposed for Dalton Piercy, Stockton and Wynyard with Help to Buy funding available on all its sites.
Jobs are also being created with Fay adding: “We do a lot of sub contracting and we try to use local builders merchants.
“We are a Hartlepool based builder and like to support our local town.”
The Seneca team now includes Dave Allinson who has become site manager at Liberty Park but Fay expects more people to be taken on as Seneca expands its portfolio.
“Our expansion plans are exciting for the next year,” she said.
“In this next year, we would like to think we have four to five developments and that is what we are focusing on.”
She said the number of extra staff to be taken on was likely to run in to double figures.
