Plans approved for hundreds of Teesside homes

Plans have been approved for Countryside Partnerships to develop an additional 204 mixed tenure homes in Teesside. Countryside Partnerships North East, was chosen by Homes England to complete the third phase of the £119 million Kirkleatham Green project, near Redcar, in April this year and submitted a planning application in May. Now approved, the popular development can continue to offer homes that meet the various housing needs of the area, improving both choice and quality for local people.

Work on the third phase of the Teesside homes development is expected to begin in November this year and will include the creation of affordable homes, homes for private rent and homes for open market sale via the Linden Homes brand. The designs for the homes on this third phase have been created following feedback from phase one customers.

Countryside Partnerships is already working on phase one and two of the project – constructing 375 homes for sale, shared ownership and private and affordable rent – and a specialist residential village of 75 homes, for people with a specific housing need.

Key to securing this latest contract, Countryside Partnerships has risen to Homes England’s challenge to build homes at pace, enabling residents to move in quickly – without compromising on quality. Adopting the same mixed tenure approach to this £44 million third phase will allow this successful model to continue. Development partners to manage the affordable and private sector rental properties will be announced in due course and it is expected the first residents will be able to move into these new third phase homes by Autumn next year.

The Home Builders Federation (HBF) also awarded a five-star builder status for the work already completed on the development, following liaison with open market sale and affordable rented customers who have moved into properties completed during phase one of the project.
