New development in Middlesborough to bring £10 million to local economy

Published:  11 July, 2014

Work is now underway on a housing development in Middlesborough. It is estimated the development of 126 high quality houses will bring £10 million to the local economy during the four years of construction through the use of local workers and suppliers.

Story Homes have begun building on the site at Stainsby Hall Farm, which will be known as Kingsbrook Wood.

Sales manager Susan Pollard said: “This is our first development in Middlesbrough, and our second in the North East, and we’re delighted with the location.

“Kingsbrook Wood is ideally situated for modern living, just off the A174 with easy access to the A19, good schools nearby and great leisure facilities such as Hemlington Lake and Recreation Centre and Middlesbrough Municipal Golf Centre not far away.”

Site manager Julian Bulman said: “Story Homes uses the best local contractors to make sure our homes are built to a superior standard.

“It is important to us as a company to put back into the areas our developments are located in by using local suppliers and workforce.”
