The applicants said the development will contribute to addressing Hartlepool’s housing shortfall.

The developer added its location is ideal for people of all ages and benefits from being close to Seaton Carew, Tees Bay Retail Park, the A689 and A19.

On their website they added: “This ideally situated development is perfect for first time buyers, second steppers and families looking to purchase a new, spacious and exciting home.”

Port Homes recently ran a competition inviting children to help design the garden for Seaton Meadows’ showhome.
