The investment by FW Capital, which manages the North East Property Fund, will pay for Horden Grange Developments to create the new homes on the eastern edge of the village, near to the East Durham Coast line and Horden Railway Station.

The houses will be released to the market by Kimmitt Roberts as the first phase of the Horden Grange development of 16 properties.

FW Capital Investment executive Tony Cullen said: “This development is a great example of what the North East Property Fund is designed to achieve. Not only is it supporting jobs, but it is providing much-needed affordable family homes.
