The Parish Council received a letter and leaflet yesterday lunchtime from Gladman Developments Ltd informing the Parish Council of its proposals for a residential development off Neasham Road which is partly in Neasham Parish and partly in Middleton St. George Parish.
The proposals are for:
a. 280 dwellings with a mix of properties, sizes including 20% affordable housing for local people allowing for range of homes for older residents and growing families.
b. 60 bed care home for the elderly, addressing a growing need and providing new employment opportunities to be retained in the village.
c. Significant areas of Public Open Space including a new community part with areas of natural play, new footpath routes and a trim trail with outdoor equipment for young and old.
d. A new children’s play area within the proposed housing area.
