The building of modern, high quality housing is crucial if Middlesbrough is to retain and grow its population of highly skilled and influential employees. The town is currently embarking on the most ambitious house-building programme in its history, with more than 1700 new homes completed over the last 4 years and 700,000 new homes due by 2029, including an exciting range of exclusive homes in addition to a wide range of attractive affordable properties.
Delivering middle- and upper-market properties alongside high quality affordable housing – in quality neighbourhoods with a sense of place and a local identity – will help to attract and retain economically active households and in turn support economic growth. Award-winning residential developers including David Wilson Homes, Taylor Wimpey, and Avant Homes (to name but a few) have already laid roots in Middlesbrough.
Well-designed neighbourhoods require significant infrastructure including transport, schools, good quality open space, cycle routes, and local facilities, all of which Middlesbrough Council is working to secure.
As well as housing developments in wider residential locations, a number of town centre-based residential developments are underway that will offer desirable urban living in the heart of the town.
