Up to 60 new homes on the way for ‘proven sustainable locations’

Outline approval has been granted by Redcar and Cleveland Council for the second phase of the Taylor Wimpey development in Guisborough which incorporates up to 60 new homes.

The proposal to land at Nightingale Road, Galley Hill, Guisborough, would also include new vehicle and pedestrian access routes, and associated landscapes. The plans were first submitted in 2018 and although outline approval has been given, some details, including appearance, scale and layout still need to be approved by the board.




A council official’s report said 26 representations from members of the public had been received against the plan, with only one in favour.

Hutton neighborhood council member Graham Jeffery also objected “on the grounds that the local community does not want this development”.

It is recommended that this be protected on condition that no site work may intersect or disturb it until a written schematic for archaeological ‘brief supervision’ of such work has been proposed and approved by the council.
