Masterplan for more than 1,670 Middlesbrough homes is back!!!

1st March 2021

Following previous consultation responses, Council Officer’s have promised that the locally valued Mandale Meadow will be retained and incorporated into a plan for the sprawling estate to become a “country park” citing between 18,000 and 25,000 new trees and shrubs will be planted across the 140 hectare site.

However, given the Council are in the process of preparing a new Local Plan and are reviewing the evidence base, CPRENY have today urged the Council to take on board the arguments set out in the their written representation and consider the impacts of the global pandemic and future population forecasts from the ONS on their estimated housing need prior to the publication of their Preferred Options Local Plan and consequently ask them to reconsider this large allocation.   Alongside this, CPRENY believe that the Councils commitment to the Climate Emergency should be central to any planning decisions and as such, CPRENY question the need for any new housing at Stainsby.

CPRENY support the numerous residents who have contacted us expressing concerns about the proposals at this location in terms of imposing a detrimental impact on the character and openness of the agricultural landscape and loss of visual amenity at this location and fully endorse their objections.
