Portuguese practice Impromptu Architects has won planning permission for this 50-home, 3.4ha scheme in Stockton-on-Tees
The project, which was the winner of the Make Me A Home contest and was designed in collaboration with Sergison Bates Architects, is the first phase of Homezone within the multi-million pound Northshore riverside scheme.
This initial development is being backed by Muse Developments - joint venture partners with Urban Splash in the Northshore Development Partnership.
Impromptu’s scheme features a mix of two, three and four bedroom homes with roof terraces and courtyards overlooking the River Tees.
Northshore will eventually create 999 new homes in total on the eastern edge of Stockton town centre.
Richard Buckley, Director of development at Tees Valley Regeneration, said: ‘A lot of work has been going on behind the scenes between partners and the developers to get this phase of Northshore ready for approval, so we’re delighted the plans have been given the go ahead.
‘This is the first major element of the scheme to begin but there are many other exciting plans for the site, all of which will transform an underused pocket of prime riverside land into a thriving mixed-use development, bringing with it jobs and investment.’
