Taylor Wimpey are looking to submit a full planning application for 97 new homes on land off St Martins Way, Kirklevington

    Taylor Wimpey are looking to submit a Full Planning Application for a residential scheme of 97 new homes ranging from 3 to 5 bedrooms. A provision for affordable housing will be given along with an extensive landscaping scheme and a sustainable drainage system.

  • About the site

    About the Site

    The site subject to this consultation is being promoted by Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire and has outline planning permission for residential development. The site is identified in the Stockton-on-Tees Local Plan as a housing commitment/allocation, as such, the principle of residential development in this location has already been deemed acceptable.

    Full planning permission is now being sought which includes details of the layout and housetypes. The draft layout shown on the ‘What’s Proposed’ page outlines the overall approach to the proposals offering a variety of new homes in a legible layout allowing a series of positive and varied street scenes.


    The site is located off St Martins Way in the village of Kirklevington which is a perfect location for commuting to close by Yarm, Stockton on Tess and Middlesbrough. The A19 junction only a mile away allows quick access North & South. The thriving market town of Yarm provides a wide range of shops, restaurants and pubs which can be reached by car within 10 minutes. With its countryside location, the site boasts views over neighbouring fields to the south and provides plenty of walking, running and cycling routes nearby.

    The site is currently used as a paddock bounded by vegetation, most of which is to remain as part of the proposed development. A buffer will be provided to the existing dwellings to the North and East. Further agricultural land bounds the South & West, with the railway line running to Yarm station.

    Community Benefits

    There will be a wide range of community benefits that accompany the site's development, such as:

    • We employ a wide range of trades, providing opportunities for local workers and sub-contractors.
    • The development will deliver a range of housing to meet the needs and aspirations of the whole community.  There will be a provision of affordable homes as well as homes to meet the needs of first time buyers, key workers and families.
    • The development will have a legal agreement with the local authority in place called a Section 106 Agreement which covers any required improvements to the existing local infrastructure and services.

    25th August 2020




    Following the leaflet distribution we have receive a number of responses from residents. Please refer to the information below in relation to a few of the duplicate comments:



    Number of Houses


    The number of dwellings proposed as part of this full planning application (97) is slightly more than the extant outline planning permission which was for ‘approximately’ 90 dwellings. As such, full planning permission is now sought.


    Supporting paragraph 5.2 to Policy H1 of the Stockton Local Plan confirms:


    “Where planning permissions on re-affirmed sites lapse, or where revised proposals come forward, the principle of residential development will continue to be supported in accordance with Policy H1, subject to compliance with other relevant Local Plan policies”.


    The suggested capacity of the site in Policy H1 (site V5) of the Stockton Local Plan is only a guide, with the final site capacity considered as part of a detailed planning application.  The additional 7no. houses do not give rise to any additional technical issues and will result in a well designed layout in accordance with the Council’s requirements. In addition, the proposed detailed layout is considered to be an improvement on the previous masterplan, providing significantly more open space.


    Relationships with Adjacent Houses


    The relationship of the proposed houses with the existing residential properties abutting the site boundary has been given careful consideration and the scheme maintains a suitable gap between existing and proposed houses.  Indeed, the detailed layout now proposed is considered to be a significant improvement on the masterplan layout which included more proposed houses in close proximity to the existing houses around the site.


    The separation distances proposed are entirely acceptable and will ensure that the development does not give rise to detrimental privacy, overlooking or overshadowing issues upon the amenities of the occupants of the existing properties as well as the future occupants of the proposed development.




    The proposed access from St Martins Way has already been deemed acceptable through the granting of outline planning permission.


    The new application will be supported by a detailed Transport Assessment which will demonstrate that the development is acceptable in highways terms.


    Construction Management


    It is envisaged that any planning permission will be subject to a condition requiring the agreement of a Construction Management Plan prior to works commencing. This will include details of working hours as well as how impacts on local residents will be minimised during the construction period.

    September 2020


    We would like to thank everyone for taking time to provide comments on the development proposals. Many of the issues raised have been answered with the points added on 25th August. In regard to the development layout, we have made the following changes:

    - Plots 1 & 6 moved away from the boundary to No's 1/3/5 Moor Close. This has increased privacy distances above the standard requirement. The current vegetation on the boundary will remain and any within the TW boundary will be maintained by a management company. This area will be closed off for maintenance of the hedge only i.e. not for public access. 

    - The Sub Station has been relocated away from the site entrance. 

    - Traffic calming measures have been added to the junction on the entrance road. 

    - Footpath around the SUDs basin has been altered.


    We can confirm:

    - The Suds basin will be dry for the majority of the time and will be fenced where the footpath does not cross.

    - No future buildings are planned for the areas of Public Open Space.

    - The POS have been shown in these locations due to levels. A Management Company will be appointed to maintain these areas. 


    We will now collate our information ready to submit a planning application very shortly. 






    January 2021


    The planning application was submitted to Stockton Borough Council in line with the layout shown in the update above. Taylor Wimpey will be in discussion with the planner to help answer and questions and making amendments if required.
