He also successfully established Keelman Homes, a charitable new build company that developed more than 100 homes – the first in a generation in Gateshead. He said: “My overall vision for the group is simple. I want people to say that they are proud to call Durham home, and that doesn’t just come from bricks and mortar. It’s about improving lives beyond the garden gate and I’m confident that by working with our landlords we can achieve this together.”
