Work has begun on the regeneration of Beyond Housing's Church Lane North estate consisting of over 300 homes in the Grangetown area of Greater Eston, Redcar and Cleveland.

The project was procured through our Development Contractors DPS and delivered by Engie Regeneration to provide affordable homes, improvements, new home development and community engagement projects.

The regeneration scheme received a £16 million investment and will capture the area's sense of community, giving residents an environment to be proud of.

The project will include the refurbishment of long term empty properties with a wide range of improvements including a re-roofing programme and installation of external wall insulation to increase thermal performance and reduce fuel costs for residents.

In addition to these existing home improvements, some additional empty homes will be demolished, enabling the estate to be redesigned into a more simplified layout that will re orientate homes, provide parking and accommodate new highways to be introduced. Poor quality open space will become private rear gardens and high quality green spaces for the community.

Areas of redundant parking will allow for new homes of varying sizes from two to four bedrooms as well as two and three bedroomed bungalows for those who require accessible homes. These will be made available for affordable rent or for sale on a shared ownership or rent to buy basis to meet diverse housing needs, provide inclusive affordable housing and improve the balance of tenure options and home sizes in the area.

A strong programme of engagement will help to develop and work alongside the community and residents to deliver training and employment opportunities to tackle social issues and improve the lives of residents. This includes a community hub of multifunctional space for use.
