Situated at The Dell on the outskirts of the town centre, Oakland Park by Story Homes will feature a collection of 39 detached four and five bedroom homes made up of eight new house types.

David Leightley, from Bedlington, has been recruited as site manager. The 46-year-old said: “When the opportunity came up to manage the Oakland Park site, I jumped at the chance.

“We are currently in the first phase of site set-up, which includes laying down the infrastructure, roads and sewers, and we will shortly be able to start building the foundations of the first plots.”
