Third Phase of Teesside Development Moves a Step Closer

A planning application for 204 new homes at a large regeneration site on Teesside, has been submitted by Countryside Partnerships North East (CPNE) - bringing a third phase of development one step closer to fruition.

The wider Kirkleatham Green site, near Redcar, benefits from outline planning consent for the development of up to 654 dwellings and is split into three phases. CPNE is already working on phase one of the project – 375 homes for sale, shared ownership, and private and affordable rent, with P+HS as the delivery architect – and phase two – a specialist residential extra care development of 75 homes for people with a specific housing need for registered provider, Beyond Housing.

This latest application for the final phase of development would, should it be successful, see more high-quality homes of mixed tenure, designed to appeal to a range of occupants.

P+HS Architects have been working closely with CPNE on proposals for the development area for several months, providing design information in support of a successful tender submission to Homes England and subsequently, for the planning application.

The team’s approach to phase three has been based on its intricate understanding of the site and the most important aspect of the development: the people who want a choice of affordable housing in the area.

The scheme will provide a mix of two, three and four bedroomed dwellings, designed for sustainability, using a fabric first approach, and high efficiency, low emission solutions throughout. Designed around a central linear green space, which incorporates the site’s sustainable drainage strategy, the layout provides good amenity areas, connections to nature and habitats for wildlife.

Commenting on the planning application milestone, P+HS Director Chris Dennis said “We have been involved with the Kirkleatham site for several years and it is great to be working with construction and regeneration specialist CPNE on this final tranche of development which will provide high-quality, good value housing in a place where people want to live. From outright sale, private or affordable rent or shared ownership, there will be something for everyone here. The team at CPNE are highly experienced, and taking feedback from phase 1, we have worked closely with them to develop the scheme to meet changing market conditions and the needs of residents.”

Andrew Rennie, Development Director with Countryside Partnerships North East, said: “We are delighted to be submitting this planning application for a third phase at Kirkleatham Green. P+HS have been an important partner in getting us to this stage and - as on previous projects – we have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with their skilled and experienced design team."

“We look forward, should planning be granted to further increasing the choice, quality and availability of suitable housing on Teesside.”

If the application is successful, it is hoped that work could start as soon as October.
