Raft of local jobs created by Hartlepool residential development - PORT Homes

A new residential project has sold 95 per cent of its properties two years ahead of schedule creating a wealth of local labour requirement.

St Teresa’s Close, a development of 20 residencies by Port Homes, now has just one bungalow remaining. The properties have been developed using a purely local supply chain, an ethos its founders instigated to demonstrate their commitment to the Hartlepool area.

Founded in 2017 by brothers Christopher and Daniel Port, Port Homes has built a range of modern three-bedroom properties at St Teresa’s Close.

Initial plans were to sell all 20 properties within four years, but demand for the properties has seen them expand their workforce and tap into local talent to deliver two years earlier than anticipated.

Daniel Port, director of Port Homes, said: “When you look at the impact of using local services, you can create and maintain a vast amount of work in Hartlepool through onsite jobs and our supply chain.

“Being from Hartlepool, we wanted to build something of great quality and value for people in the town and we’re thrilled our properties have been recognised for that.”

Port Homes has recently started work on its next development, with plans to build 55 new homes in the town that will all be available on Help to Buy schemes.
