Esh Living completes development of 34 new homes in Stockton

The Alma Street development forms part of a project to produce modern housing in the heart of Stockton’s town centre.

Esh’s affordable housing division has transformed the former site of Alma House, Alma Resource Centre, and a disused garage in the centre of Stockton into 34 new properties, all for affordable rent.

Completed on behalf of Thirteen – the largest social landlord in the North East – in partnership with Stockton Borough Council and supported by funding from Homes England, the development includes 20 two-bedroom apartments, 10 two-bedroom houses, and four two-bedroom bungalows

The homes are in a central location, with the town’s shopping facilities and train station within walking distance. 

Ian Wardle, Chief Executive at Thirteen said: “It has been a pleasure to work alongside our partners to deliver this fantastic scheme. The regeneration project has been incredible for the area, bringing investment and jobs to the town during construction. 

“The new site not only complements the recent investment in the regenerated town centre but has also helped to transform this important site in the heart of Stockton. The homes have made an important contribution to meeting the housing needs within the borough and will contribute to the creation of a positive housing legacy for years to come. 

“The much-needed homes have proven to be extremely popular and we are confident that they will bring happiness to our new customers.” 

This latest completion builds on Esh’s vast portfolio of delivering new build projects on behalf of social housing providers, with other key schemes completing within the North East region this year, including; a £1.2m development at Grosmont Close in Redcar on behalf of Home Group and three schemes with a combined value of £4.5m delivered on behalf of Your Homes Newcastle. 

We are delighted to see the completion of this key regeneration development for the area of Stockton. We pride ourselves on delivering high-quality, meaningful engagement within our communities and throughout this scheme have engaged with the local schools, residents, and community organisations to ensure a positive legacy long after its completion.”
