Muse submits for planning to bring more affordable homes to Northshore
Following the recent deal with leading registered provider, Thirteen, to bring a further 75 much-needed affordable homes to Stockton on Tees, Muse Developments – one of the UK’s best at delivering repurposed town and city-centre regeneration – has submitted plans to Stockton on Tees Borough Council to bring the phase forward.
Thirteen – announced in 2020 as one of Homes England’s strategic partners – has been involved in the Northshore scheme with Muse for a number of years. Previous phases of development delivered in partnership with Thirteen have included a new HQ office building and 35 homes for affordable rent and shared ownership throughout previous phases of the Homezone at Northshore.
The wider Northshore scheme, which is less than a mile from Stockton high street, is being delivered by Muse, in partnership with Homes England. Once complete, the 56-acre gateway development will provide in the region of 350 homes across a range of tenures, 80,000 sq ft of office accommodation, a new 128-bedroom Hampton by Hilton hotel and extensive public realm improvements.
Simon Dew, development director at Muse, said: “Working closely with Thirteen, we’re delighted to submit planning to bring forward the latest phase of homes, despite these current challenging times. We’re very much looking forward to adding to the vibrant and diverse waterside community we’ve created here in partnership with Thirteen, Homes England and Stockton on Tees Borough Council.
“Together, we’re working to boost the local economy, create opportunities for local people and generate a wide mix of homes to suit everyone’s needs.”
Miles Crossley, head of land at Thirteen, said: “This exciting development in a stunning Riverside location will not only increase the supply of affordable homes to rent but will also support a new generation of homeowners with shared ownership homes available too.
“Subject to planning approval we’re really looking forward to working with Muse and partners to deliver these great new homes.”
It is anticipated that the fourth phase at Northshore will begin on site in the autumn.
