If planning permission is approved in the New Year, the current properties, including Alma House, Alma Resource Centre and a disused garage will be demolished to make way for new and modern homes in the heart of the town centre.

The work is expected to start in March 2018 and homes should be ready to move into by spring 2019.

The development plans include 34 homes for affordable rent including 20 two-bedroom apartments, 10 two-bedroom houses and 4 two-bedroom bungalows.

The site is in an excellent location, with Stockton town centre and amenities within a short walking distance and easy access to the town’s train station.

Ian Wardle, chief executive at Thirteen, said: “This development will provide high-quality, affordable rented homes on a fantastic site in the heart of Stockton.

“It will not only complement the recent investment in the regenerated town centre but will also bring this important site back into use by providing, family housing, apartments and bungalows, that will meet the needs of the local community.”
