Green light for new homes in High Tunstall, Hartlepool

November 2020

We have successfully secured the backing from Hartlepool Borough Council with reserved matters planning permission approved for 162 new homes on land south of Elwick Road, High Tunstall in Hartlepool.

The High Tunstall site is allocated for residential development in the adopted Hartlepool Local Plan (May 2018) as part of a wider allocation for approximately 1,200 dwellings with a new distributor road, local centre, primary school and amenity open space.

This is our first development in Hartlepool, and it includes a mix of three, four and five-bedroom properties across a variety of house types. As part of the development, we will also contribute around £1.9m towards local road networks and ecological mitigation.

The proposals will create a sustainable and integrated development, making an important contribution to the Council’s housing supply. The proposed development will deliver a mix of house types including terraced, semi-detached, and detached dwellings.

Land manager, Amanda Stephenson, said: “We are delighted to have received the backing of Hartlepool Borough Council in respect of our planned development of 162 new homes in High Tunstall, forming the first phase of development from the site’s wider allocation of 1,200 dwellings. We have worked closely with the council to design a scheme that is not only high-quality but will also complement the existing character of the area.

“Our proposals will also provide local contractors with opportunities for work, and there will be knock on benefits for local supply chains, businesses and services.”

We anticipate that work on site will begin from January 2021, with the first homes due for completion in autumn 2021.
