Work is continuing in Grove Hill as part of a masterplan to regenerate the estate.
Erimus Housing has been working in partnership with Middlesbrough Council to create plans to cement the future sustainability of Grove Hill in the town.
Since a massive consultation exercise was carried out with people living in the area, hundreds of unpopular properties have been demolished and work has also begun to build the first new homes on the estate.
Erimus Housing owns over 1,200 properties in Grove Hill and during the consultation residents said while many parts of Grove Hill were popular and had a strong sense of community, there were some areas where residents were concerned about empty properties, crime, community safety, and the environment.
People wanted to see more homes for sale in the area, better local facilities and home and environmental improvements.
Work started on Castle Way in 2012, with 30 family homes being built in conjunction with Southdale. Twenty of these are for rent and the remaining 10 are three and four bedroom homes being sold by Circa. Further information on the sale homes can be found at www.castle-gardens.co.uk.
Building also started in 2012 on the site previoulsy occupied by Marton Grove School. This 44 unit development will consist of two bedroom bungalows, two bedroom apartments and three bedroom house all for affordable rent. The development should be complete early in 2014.
Demolition is also continuing and large parts of The Vale, Keith Road, Meadowfield Avenue, Ashfield Avenue and Marton Burn Road are now clear.
