Open day at flats aiming for repeat success

An open day for affordable housing in Brandon could see attendees pick up the keys to their new home in one day. 

County Durham Housing Group is opening the doors to Vicarage Flats on Wednesday, 5 September to highlight the variety of affordable homes available immediately.

A three-bedroom flat will be accessible for viewing throughout the open day from noon to 5.30pm.

The event is intended to give home hunters the chance to discuss available properties face-to-face with officers from the group, and find out how they could potentially get the keys to a new property within hours.

County Durham Housing Group Head of Housing Operations, Simon Bartlett said: “Our last open day at Vicarage flats was a huge success, with lots of visitors and one new tenant picking up his keys straight away. We’re hoping to repeat that success in September.

“The event is a great opportunity to come and speak to housing officers who know the area well and can help with any questions on affordable housing.

“Lots of people still think that a housing association property is not an option, but we’ve got homes available immediately in a variety of locations.”

Vicarage Flats is situated near the centre of Brandon and is within easy reach of Durham city centre, as well as having a range of local amenities and schools on the doorstep.

More information on the event is available here.
