The completion of a £30m town centre housing development has been marked with a special opening.
Stockton Mayor Ian Dalgarno was the special guest as the event to celebrate the completion of Nursery Gardens, off Spring Street in Stockton’s town centre.
The 110-home scheme is a partnership between Stockton Council, Dunelm Homes (Esh Group), the Homes and Communities Agency and Tees Valley Housing, which is part of the Thirteen Group.
Residents were invited to come along to meet with representatives of the organisations who worked on the project and see a display showcasing the history of the area.
Cllr Dalgarno, said: “This area has been truly transformed and now offers a mix of good quality homes, just a short distance from the Town Centre. Nursery Gardens is the first of our regeneration-led schemes to formally complete and it is an excellent example of what can be achieved.”
Stockton Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Housing, Councillor Mike Smith, said: “Creating clean, green and safe communities across Stockton Borough is at the heart of our regeneration schemes. Nursery Gardens shows what we are striving to achieve – different types of homes suiting a range of budgets.”
Martin Hawthorne, Director of Development and Regeneration at Thirteen Group, said: “This is an invaluable regeneration scheme that has created a new neighbourhood at the heart of Stockton-on-Tees.
“We are proud to be part of this project, which demonstrates what can be achieved through an effective partnership between organisations that share the same goal of creating new homes and improving communities.”
