Michael Farr, Bernicia Executive Director of Assets and Growth, said: “This high-quality Bernicia development is specifically designed with the long-term living needs of people aged 55 and over in mind.

“The new bungalows are finished to the highest standard, located within yards of the Manor Walks Shopping Centre, Cramlington train station and served by excellent bus links.

“They offer a superb quality of life for mature people in a highly popular area, offering quality homes in communities people want to live in.”

Ian Avis, construction manager for Tolent, added: “It is a pleasure to walk around the site and showcase the progress the team have made.

“The bungalows have been delivered to an exceptional quality and the team are now concentrating on delivering the contemporary living complex to the same high standards. We look forward to handing over this development later in the year.”
