Bellway has marked 10 years of housebuilding at a new homes development in Stockton which has provided 474 new homes for the local area.
The Queensgate development, off Yarm Road, is named after the former Visqueen plastic factory which occupied the site until it closed in 2009.
The brownfield site has been transformed into a thriving new residential community, which is now complete.
As well as providing new homes, the development has also seen the creation of a central green space within the neighbourhood.
With construction at Queensgate now at an end and just one three-bedroom house remaining for sale, Bellway is now preparing to build further new homes at Old School Gardens, off Blakeston Lane.
Hayley Teasdale, sales manager for Bellway’s Durham division, said: “Queensgate has been a flagship project for Bellway in Stockton, transforming a brownfield former factory site and providing hundreds of much-needed new homes for the local area.
“We’ve now come to the end of building work here, with the majority of the new homes now occupied by their new owners and just one property remaining for sale.
“The development has become home to a diverse range of people, including first-time buyers, downsizers and growing families, who’ve all been looking to be part of a new community forming around them.
“We’re now looking forward to building on the legacy we’ve already established in Stockton by starting work on our new development at Old School Gardens, where we’re planning to deliver a further 80 new homes.”
