final properties at mandale park demolished

The final properties at Mandale Park in Thornaby have now been demolished so the remainder of the new homes planned for the area can be built.

The £100 million scheme to regenerate the estate has seen 578 houses demolished and 770 new homes built since 2004.

The demolition of the last 20 properties means that a further 90 homes can begin to be constructed with work due to be completed in 2016.

Stockton Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing and Community Safety, Councillor Steve Nelson, said: “The redevelopment of Mandale Park has created hundreds of good quality, affordable homes which are benefitting both existing residents and others who are choosing to live in the area.

“These final demolitions are a significant milestone for the scheme and I’m looking forward to seeing the remaining new homes constructed over the next two years. The completed estate will be an area everyone can be proud of and will benefit current and future generations for many years to come.”

Norma Ironside, Tristar’s Regeneration Project Coordinator, said: “Following ten years of phased rehousing of residents and clearing the land ready for the new development, the transformation of the area is fantastic.”

The regeneration of the estate is being led by Stockton Council in partnership with Tristar Homes, Barratt Homes, Keepmoat and Isos Housing and has received financial support from the Homes and Communities Agency.

Once complete more than 860 new homes will have been built, including 200 affordable homes for rent or shared ownership.
