Eco-Park plans moving a step closer

As many as 20 companies could be based on a 53-hectare former steelworks site to be branded as the South Tees Eco-Park, with the first planning application for development expected later this month.

Work on the site is expected to begin by next March in a phased development that will span several years and negotiations for a £2.5million funding bid are being progressed by the Council to construct access and highway improvements to serve the site.

The North East company, Graphite Resources, is expected to deliver its plans for the site's 'anchor' development which is earmarked for almost half the site.

The company will be hosting public consultation sessions at the South Tees Business Centre in Puddlers Road, South Bank on Thursday, September 13, between noon-7pm and Saturday, September 15, from 9am-noon.
