Abandoned Stockton housing project resumes

A major housing development on Teesside that was stalled by the recession is now back on track.

More than 50 homes had been completed on the site at Nursery Gardens, Parkfield, Stockton, when the work was halted in 2008.

But now workers are back on site after original plans were scaled down to suit the "financial climate".

Dunelm Homes and Tees Valley Housing are building a further 110 house and bungalows on the site.

The project is being back by Stockton Council and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

Ray Minto, investment and regeneration manager at HCA, said: "In a difficult financial climate, we have helped the partners come together with new financial and design proposals to make the scheme work for the neighbourhood and the community."
