Details of the Hemlington Grange regeneration project
Hemlington Grange has been identified in the Council's development plan as a mixed-use sustainable urban extension. The site is 57ha, mainly greenfield on the southern fringe of Middlesbrough adjoining the housing neighbourhoods of Coulby Newham to the east and Hemlington to the north, providing a substantial development area in an attractive semi rural location. A small portion of the site consisting of the former Hemlington Hospital and abandoned sewage works north of the hospital is brownfield land. Hemlington Grange has excellent road links, and is in close proximity to retail facilities and leisure facilities. A masterplan has been developed that provides for between 1000 - 1100 new homes, 8 hectares of commercial development, with a new local community park and network of green spaces.
The Council is currently in the process of procuring a private sector, Joint Venture partner who will share in our ambition and commitment to deliver successful and sustainable housing-led regeneration at Hemlington. It is envisaged that the partnership will operate over a 10-15 year period commencing in 2013. The remit of the partnership will be flexible and wide ranging, focusing primarily on master planning, statutory planning, community engagement, delivery of infrastructure, housing development and improvement but may extend to commercial development, neighbourhood/public realm improvements and community schemes.
