Nunthorpe Grange: Parish Council Extraordinary Meeting

What: Extraordinary Meeting of Nunthorpe Parish Council regarding Nunthorpe Grange

When: Wednesday, August 22, 2018 at 7pm

Where: The school hall at The Avenue Primary School, The Avenue, Nunthorpe

Our view: As part of Middlesbrough Council’s Local Plan for 2014, the land between Guisborough Road, Stokesley Road and the bypass was earmarked for development into another major housing estate.

We at Nunthorpe Parish Council feel this will bring years of building site misery to the current residents of this area and meaning further loss of open green space.

It was a development that many Nunthorpe residents made clear to the council that it didn’t want. Now is the time to influence the type of development this will eventually become.

There are many things to consider.

In addition to the dozens of additional cars, this development will add to the already overloaded road infrastructure of Dixons Bank and Marton Road as well as to the roads through Nunthorpe.

Middlesbrough Council is making no plans for additional vital services for the area – schools, community centres, shops, doctors or dentist provision.

The draft Master Plan for Nunthorpe Grange – as it is to be known – is out to public consultation until August 31.

Nunthorpe Parish Council invites you along to this extraordinary  meeting to debate this issue with us and then to make your views known to Middlesbrough Council at their Planning Portal on the website consult.middlesbrough.gov.uk/portal, by e-mail to planningpolicy@middlesbrough.gov.uk or by post to Planning Policy, Middlesbrough Council, PO Box 504, First Floor, Civic Centre, TS1 9FY.

Please work with us to stop Nunthorpe being used yet again for housing with no benefits returned to the community.
