    About the Site

    Land at Urlay Nook

    This land at Urlay Nook generally comprises open arable grassland bound by hedgerows.

    The land is bounded by Urlay Nook Road to the eastern and northern boundaries, with the A67 (leading to Darlington and the airport) to the south.


    Land Proposed for Development, Urlay Nook



    The land is in close proximity to employment related development; within 500m of existing parks and recreational facilities, within 1km of Durham Lane designated retail centre and a Tesco supermarket. Eaglescliffe Comprehensive School, Durham Lane Primary School and Junction Farm Primary School are also within walking distance of the site.

    The Need for New Housing

    Nationally there is a need for new homes amounting to around 3 million being required between now and 2025. Such needs have now led to the average first time buyer age being 37 (expected to increase to 43 in coming years), and to large numbers of families living in inappropriate accommodation.

    31st August 2012 | Outline Planning Application

    Following our pre-application community consultation programme earlier this year, Taylor Wimpey UK Ltd and West Raynham Developments Ltd have submitted an outline planning application to Stockton Borough Council for the construction of up to 160 new homes on land adjacent to Urlay Nook Road in Eaglescliffe.

    We would like to thank everyone who took part in our consultation and shared their views on the proposals. We have taken on board all of the comments we received and have made revisions to our early proposals as a result.

    At this stage, our outline application seeks only to establish the principle of developing residential housing on this site, which is within the settlement boundary of Eaglescliffe, and details how the site would be accessed.

    We believe this project provides an excellent opportunity to deliver a sensitively landscaped high quality scheme which includes affordable homes to meet local needs, and one which is in-keeping with its surroundings.
