Thirteen has submitted a planning application to build 296 new homes in Grove Hill, representing an investment of £50m in the area.
The affordable homes, which will be a mix of two-, three-, and four-beds and houses and bungalows, will add to the new Bishopton Road development that Thirteen completed earlier this year.
Following consultation with residents in Grove Hill last year, Thirteen received feedback and suggestions that have helped shape the final designs for the planning application.
Subject to planning approval, Thirteen aims to start work on the new homes in Spring next year.
Ian Wardle, Thirteen’s chief executive, said: “This potential development in the heart of Grove Hill will help address the demand for affordable housing in Middlesbrough and create a legacy for years to come.
“Subject to planning approval, we’re really looking forward to working with Middlesbrough Council and Homes England on delivering these great new homes.”
Mayor of Middlesbrough Andy Preston added: “This development is naturally subject to a planning process, but I’m excited by what looks like a positive step in the right direction for Grove Hill.
“Building on brownfield land such as this is something that hasn’t happened enough in the past.
“This development would be another step in our town’s urban renaissance, bringing new homes for families and retired people in an area that’s been left to deteriorate for decades.”
