Consultants working towards a planning application for the multi million pounds Coatham Links development in Redcar are starting a series of studies to support the application, the outcomes of which will also address concerns raised by residents during consultation.
Persimmon Homes has commissioned a variety of different surveys to be carried out in the coming weeks. They include detailed geophysical studies and ecological surveys which address any plant or wildlife on the site and archaeological trenching which checks for any relics.
Persimmon's Regional Projects Director, Peter Jordan, said: "We are very excited about the appointment of our specialist team who will assist Persimmon in preparing a robust and thorough planning application with supporting environmental statement.
"With the approval of Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, we have appointed a wide range of consultants who are experts in their relative fields and will be looking at Coatham very closely. This will entail a number of site visits over the coming months to assess the impact the proposed development will have on the area.”
