Cecil M Yuill Ltd Planning Application For 475 Homes At Quarry Farm

Issue 64

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 eastwest 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
