Muse gets go-ahead for second phase at Northshore

Muse Developments has been given the go-ahead for the latest phase of its multi-million pound Northshore development on the banks of the river Tees.

The decision, granted by Stockton Council’s planning committee, gives the green light for a second phase of residential development at Vivo Northshore, which comprises 76 two, three and four bedroom homes.

The first phase of Vivo, developed by Muse in partnership with sister company Lovell and the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA) supported by Stockton Council and Tees Valley Housing, is almost complete creating 50 two, three and four bedroom properties on the site. Work is expected to commence on Phase 2 in December 2012.

Simon Dew, senior development surveyor at Muse, said: “We are delighted to receive planning consent for a second phase of residential development at Northshore. Phase 1 of Vivo has already proved a huge hit with buyers with 70% now sold. We are confident phase 2 will build on this success and act as a catalyst for further development within the Northshore regeneration area.”

Northshore is a 56-acre mixed-use regeneration scheme which will transform Stockton’s riverside by delivering over 1 million sq ft of offices, leisure and retail accommodation - in addition to high quality housing - within walking distance of the town centre. The site has also been earmarked for new facilities required to expand the adjacent Durham University Queens Campus. Once completed, the scheme could create in the region of 4,500 jobs.

Northshore is being developed by Muse Developments in partnership with the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA) with support from Stockton Council.
