CECIL M YUILL Ltd PLANNING APPLICATION FOR 475 HOMES AT QUARRY FARM
Hartlepool-based Cecil M Yuill Ltd, has applied for outline planning permission for the construction of 475 high quality new homes to the west of Hartlepool.
The proposed development is on land directly adjacent to Phase 2 and north of the land at High Tunstall granted outline consent in 2018 and will form the third phase of its highly popular Quarry Farm development. This has already seen 81 new homes built and sold on Phase 1 by Bellway Homes with Barratt David Wilson Homes commencing the construction of a further 220 homes at their Elwick Gardens development as part of Phase 2.
As with both our Phases 1 and 2, crucial to the proposed development is the landscape-led design approach which will see not only the preservation of the Naisberry Quarry Local Wildlife Site, but the creation of a new, north-south linear green running right through the site to link Elwick Road to the south with Worset Lane to the north and an east-west greenspace across the site. Extensive footpaths and cycle links will follow building lines rather than the roads, providing alternative access to the new street plan to different areas of the development, whilst the surrounding rural landscape will be echoed by new tree planning throughout the development.”
Edward Yuill, Managing Director of Cecil M Yuill Ltd, commented, “We’re delighted to be submitting an outline application, following public consultation, for this third phase of development at Quarry Farm. We have always had very keen interest from major housebuilder in our land at Quarry Farm who see it as an opportunity to create a high quality development attractive to the market.”
“Equally important to me, as someone who is extremely proud of my family’s long history in Hartlepool, is to ensure that the town as a whole reaps the benefit of the development. As with Phases 1 and 2, we will always strive to honour the obligations required by adopted planning policy. With Phase 2, aside from the financial benefits to be accrued through Council tax and the £2.64 million towards the construction of the grade separated junction and Elwick bypass, an additional £741,000 is to be provided towards the build of sports pitches, education, ecology and the provision of much needed on-site affordable housing.”
“We are very proud of our record of delivering housing for the town of Hartlepool and, in accordance with the local plan and financial policies within and subject to planning, we hope this will continue with serious developer interest already in Phase 3. This development will enable us to continue to be part of the regeneration of Hartlepool by providing high quality private homes and affordable housing that meet the aspirations of local people and help to retain the highly skilled population who may be tempted to move away should such new homes not become available close to the centre of Hartlepool.’
The outline planning application for the scheme was submitted to Hartlepool Borough Council on 23rd October and will be open to public view and comment following the application’s validation by officers.
