The last property at a new housing development in Ponteland has now sold.

Developer Ashberry Homes is set to welcome the final residents to their new homes this summer.

Bridgemoor at Jameson Manor, off North Road, forms part of the wider regeneration of the former Northumbria Police HQ site, which is delivering a total of 275 new homes built by both Ashberry Homes and Bellway.

More than 150 people have found a new home across the 69 properties provided at Bridgemoor, which comprises 51 private houses and 18 affordable homes for local people.

The development includes a range of two, three and four-bedroom houses.

The 23-hectare site of the former headquarters of Northumbria Police was purchased by the developers in 2018 for £21 million, having been vacant since 2016 when the force relocated nearby.

The money from the sale is being invested back into local policing.

Construction work began on the site in 2019.

Oliver Wray, Sales Manager for Ashberry Homes, said: “The success we’ve seen with sales at Bridgemoor at Jameson Manor demonstrates the growing demand for new housing in Northumberland and Newcastle.

“The development has proven popular with house-hunters searching for an enviable rural location that is just a short drive from Ponteland town centre, and only eight miles from Newcastle city centre.”
