Residential development at former Teesside factory site reaches final phase

A Stockton development that has transformed a former factory site into a new residential neighbourhood is approaching completion.

Developer Bellway is building 474 new homes at the Queensgate Development off Yarm Road, at the former site of the Visqueen plastics factory.

The derelict site, which became vacant following the closure of the plastics plant in 2009, is currently home to 450 residential properties, with the remaining 14 set to be completed by the summer.

The development includes a range of two, three and four-bedroom houses and apartments built around a village green. 48 of the homes have been provided as affordable housing for rent or shared ownership.

Darren Pelusi, sales manager for Bellway Durham, commented: “Over the past 10 years, this derelict former factory site has been completely transformed into a thriving and attractive new neighbourhood which is delivering much-needed new homes for the area.

“The site’s convenient location, just two miles from Stockton town centre, has made it popular with a wide range of buyers and we’re pleased to say that the development is now almost sold out.

“We’re looking forward to completing construction work later this year and welcoming the final few residents into their homes.”
