Middlesbrough Council is seeking the public’s views on proposals for three major housing developments.
The proposed developments would see nearly 800 new homes built in the borough.
As these applications will generate considerable local interest – and two are on sites on the edge of town not allocated for new development - the Council is undertaking additional consultation to give local people an opportunity to access more information on the proposals and make their views known.
The Council is currently considering three planning applications for major residential developments:
Display boards in the club house at the Municipal Golf Centre in Ladgate Lane, until Monday, March 28 providing key information about the outline application for the site.
Display at Nunthorpe Methodist Church, on the corner of Marton Moor and Connaught Road, and at Marton Community Centre in Cypress Road until Wednesday, April 6.
Key documents including the planning statement and extracts from the transport assessment will be available in Marton Library.
Display boards in Stainton Memorial Hall in Meldyke Lane, with a summary of application and copies of key documents until Wednesday, April 6.
Councillor Charlie Rooney, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said: “We know that Middlesbrough has for decades suffered from a declining population and that has had an adverse effect on the town.
“That was in part due to a historic lack of quality housing, meaning families and young professionals have often moved outside the borough when looking for a home.
“But we also need developments which are right for the town, and that’s why we need to hear from the people who will be directly affected by any such proposal.”
Middlesbrough Council welcomes views from members of the public on planning issues, particularly large scale projects which will have a long-term effect on the town.
Further details are available on the planning services home page on the Council’s website at www.middlesbrough.gov.uk or the full planning application documentation can be viewed in the Council’s planning offices in the Civic Centre.
