Green light for new homes in Hartlepool

02 January 2024

Hartlepool Borough Council has approved plans for the final phase of their Marine Point development in Hartlepool.

The brownfield development was formerly the site of the Britmag (British Magnesia) plant, which closed in 2005.

These final new 20 homes will take the overall number of houses on the site to 393 when building work is complete.

As part of planning approvals for the site, we have contributed around half a million pounds to the local authority to go towards improving infrastructure and local recreational areas.

Homes on the Marine Point development range from two-bed terraces through to 4-bed detached properties.

Residents have access to over 2 acres of useable public open space with access to the sand dunes and beach.

Sean Taylor, Managing Director Teesside, said: “We’re delighted that Hartlepool Borough Council has granted permission for the final 20 homes on our Marine Point development.

“Persimmon is committed to building high-quality, affordable homes for local people, and this development provides a mix of house sizes for families and downsizers alike.

“Marine Point also provides significant funding for improvements to recreation and transport in the local area.”
