Go-ahead for New Roundabout for Nunthorpe By-pass

At a meeting of the Middlesbrough Planning Committee last Friday, the planning application by the Council to build a new roundabout on the by-pass was passed. This will be used to give access to the housing site to the north of the by-pass but it also opens up an access to the farmland to the south which the Council also owns. There were two proposals for a postponement of the decision, one from a member of the committee and the other from a representative from Persimmon Homes but that was ignored. So this will undoubtedly result in many more houses being proposed in the coming years.
