Progress on Northshore affordable homes

24.08.23 3 min read by Ryan Devlin

Recently, we took the opportunity to take our partners, registered provider, Thirteen Group and Homes England – the government’s housing and regeneration agency – around our delivery of 113 affordable homes at Northshore, Stockton-on-Tees for a site tour to highlight its significant progress.

The new homes, which were part funded by the TEES VALLEY COMBINED AUTHORITY, will be energy efficient and available for both shared ownership and affordable rent. Following on from our successful delivery of three previous phases, we’re due to start welcoming residents later this year.

Andrew Milne, Senior Development Manager, said:

The latest phase of affordable homes at Northshore is a crucial element in the overall community that we’re creating together with our partners and we’re delighted with the progress on site. Less than a mile from Stockton’s high street, the transformation of a former industrial site into a welcoming, connected place where people want to live, work and spend their leisure time is well underway.”
It was a pleasure to share with our investment partners not only the progress made in the delivery of quality affordable homes but also the wider development, as part of the regeneration of the town centre and River Tees which will benefit the whole community.”

Alastair Haworth, Senior Development Manager at Homes England, said: “Working with our partners, it is great to see a further phase of high-quality homes being delivered, creating a well-designed place to support an ever-growing community at Northshore. A place that people will be proud to call home.”

John Manning, Construction and Build Director at Thirteen, said: “We enjoy a fantastic, well-established working relationship with Muse and all the partners involved. It’s great to see the incredible progress on the site, which is the culmination of genuine teamwork.

“This development is a great example of reusing a redundant brownfield site to provide high-quality, affordable homes in an attractive setting with river frontage.”

Councillor Nigel Cooke, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Housing, said: “It’s fantastic to see the progress made at the Northshore site, which is going to be a great location for residents to live so close to Stockton Riverside and High Street.

“Encouraging people to live in or nearby town centres is one of the key factors in regeneration, so the 113 affordable homes are a very welcome addition as we continue on with our plans to improve every town centre across the Borough and make them fit for the future.”

We’re creating the wider Northshore neighbourhood in partnership with Homes England and Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council. Once complete, the 56-acre gateway community will have provided in the region of 350 homes across a range of tenures and has already delivered 80,000 sq ft of offices, a new 128-bedroom Hampton by Hilton hotel, with a number of public spaces created.
