An event to celebrate the completion of Nursery Gardens, a Stockton Town Centre housing development, has taken place.

The Mayor of Stockton-on-Tees, Councillor Ian Dalgarno, was among guests invited to speak at the event which marks the completion of the £30million pound housing development off Spring Street. 

The 110 home scheme is a partnership between Stockton-on-Tees Borough 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.

Mayor of Stockton-on-Tees, Councillor Ian 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.”

Councillor Mike Smith, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Housing, 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.”
