Final phase lined up for Wynyard Village

North East developers Cameron Hall and Jomast have lodged outline plans with Stockton-on-Tees Council for up to 800 homes along with community facilities.

Newcastle-based GT3 Architects and Darlington firm ELG Planning are advising on the project, which is billed as the last piece of the jigsaw at the popular Wynyard Village.

The village sits south of the A689, west of Billingham and the A19, three miles from Stockton-on-Tees and four miles from Middlesbrough.

Schemes currently on site or in planning as the village expands are being advanced by Charles Church, Bellway, Wynyard Homes, Robertson Homes and both Cameron Hall and Jomast.

Wynyard Village has been built up over the last 20 years, following the development of the listed Wynyard Hall, acquired by Sir John Hall, Cameron Hall’s founder, in 1987 and since transformed into a hotel, spa and conference centre. The village’s current population is estimated at 3,200.

The approach to housing within the Cameron Hall/Jomast masterplan area is largely low-density, working with and around existing geographic features.

Included within the plans are amenities for residents, including a new community centre to house the societies and clubs already active in the area. The vision includes enhancements to community parks and the creation of new play spaces and walkways, opening up additional areas of parkland and greenspace.

Improvements to Wynyard Golf Club are also included.

The developers stated that Wynyard Village plays a key role in attracting and retaining entrepreneurs and business leaders within the Tees Valley, and that development here will further strengthen that as local authorities look to bring forward economic development projects such as Teesworks.

A spokesperson for Jomast Developments said: “This joint venture with Cameron Hall Developments brings forward a comprehensive and coordinated approach to enhance Wynyard Village. The strategy for this proposed development, as with every new development within the estate, links back to the original vision for Wynyard Village, of creating a sustainable community comprising high-quality, low-density housing, employment and leisure opportunities.”

A spokesperson for Cameron Hall Developments added: “We have been working closely with Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council through pre-application discussions, to ensure our vision and the application meets with the authority’s aspirations for the area. As plans evolve, as a priority we will carry out a full consultation with all appropriate stakeholders, including the Wynyard Resident’s Association.”

The proposals are already attracting attention. Despite only being validated on the Stockton planning portal at the end of March, a swathe of objections have already been lodged, with 80 comments registered at the time of writing. Typical concerns raised include loss of open space and privacy, increased traffic and over-development.
