Beyond Housing has appointed a dedicated caretaker to look after the Church Lane North estate in Eston during a “significant” regeneration project.
Luke Marshall will help moniter and maintain the estate throughout its two-to-three-year lifespan, serving as a visible presence to demonstrate Beyond Housing’s commitment to the project and helping create an environment that residents enjoy.
Marshall, from Redcar, has been part of Beyond Housing for 10 years, previously supporting the organisation’s former community furniture project, ‘Re:Furnish’, by managing stock and customer deliveries.
Alongside community connector Faye Daniels and a soon-to-be-appointed Marketing and Communications advisor, Luke will be based at the Church Lane North community hub on the estate, where customers will be able to visit the team and keep up to date with the regeneration plans.
The £12m plans for the estate include demolition of selected properties to allow for the creation of new roads, on-plot parking and private rear gardens, along with the development of around 33 new-build homes for rent and shared ownership.
Beyond says the appearance and energy efficiency of existing homes will also be enhanced through new roofing and external wall insulation works.
Barbara Notman, Communities manager at Beyond Housing, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Luke to the team – he’s enthusiastic and genuinely cares about the area.
“He will be a valuable and dedicated resource for the area throughout the regeneration and will make a huge difference to the estate.”
The new caretaker, Luke Marshall, said: “The Church Lane North estate really has the potential to be a fantastic place to live and somewhere customers can be proud to live.
“I’m so pleased to be part of the team helping to bring the project to life.”
Beyond Housing is one of the largest registered housing providers in the North East and North Yorkshire. With its regional offices in Redcar and Scarborough, the organisation is responsible for the letting, management, and maintenance of over 15,000 homes across the north east and North Yorkshire.
