More than 1,000 homes are to be built across the North East and North Yorkshire after the Homes and Communities Agency dished out almost £23 million to an alliance of social housing groups.

The Spirit Partnership says the £22.7m it has received from the HCA will be used to deliver 1,027 homes for people waiting to get a foot on the property ladder, as well as providing 'affordable' houses and flats for rent.

The Spirit Partnership, which has no connection to the occult or the paranormal, is made up of Erimus Housing, Housing Hartlepool, Tees Valley Housing and Tristar Homes, (which are all partners in Thirteen Group); Four Housing Group; Coast & Country Housing; livin; and Derwentside Homes.

Thirteen Group chief executive Alison Thain said: “The allocation for Spirit Partnership means that our partners at the HCA have recognised us as playing a hugely significant role in providing new homes in this region.

“Whilst building nearly 1,000 new homes, Spirit will be pumping more than £100 million into the economy which will help us to continue our work creating jobs and supporting local businesses. But this is not the end of the matter, Spirit will be looking to increase this great work over the forthcoming years as we continue to create new opportunities and invite the Homes and Communities Agency to support us with more schemes as they come along.”

Coast and Country has funding confirmed to deliver 494 homes; Thirteen Group 379 homes; Four Housing Group 47, and livin 107.
