The latest phase of a major project to revitalise the centre of Middlesbrough is under way.

The regeneration of the older housing area of Gresham began in 2010 and has already seen the demolition of more than 150 terraced houses.

Now more funding from the Homes and Communities Agency will enable up to 74 more properties to be pulled down.

Work on the first 62 demolitions is due to start in Waverley Street, Manor Street, Warren Street, Princes Road, Fleetham Street, Kingston Street and Diamond Road.

Further possible demolitions will then take place in Waverley Street, Warren Street and Princes Road.

The latest phase of the work follows consultation with local residents, ward councillors and Gresham Community Council, with the work being undertaken by demolition specialists CL Prosser & Co.

Residents in the affected areas will also be informed by letter when work is due to start in their vicinity.

The work is expected to take between nine and 12 weeks, depending on weather conditions.

The overall Gresham scheme was scaled back in 2010 in light of a major reduction in government funding for housing renewal projects.

Councillor Charlie Rooney, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said: “We’re continuing to make real progress in Gresham, and the area is being transformed.

“The demolished terraces soon grass over, and we are seeing welcome reductions in fly-tipping, vandalism, break-ins and anti-social behaviour.

“Once again I’d like thank local residents for their patience, and we will continue in our efforts to keep disruption to a minimum.

“The ultimate goal is to secure a sustainable future for Gresham, and create a community in which people want to live, work and do business.

“This latest development is another important step in the right direction.”
