Cash for energy efficient village

Plans for an energy-efficient village on Teesside have received a £1.2m funding boost.

Redcar and Cleveland Council is building 12 new homes in South Bank, which it says will be constructed to a high environmental standard.

The money will also be used for road improvement works at Low Grange and shop front revamps along Normanby Road.

The government has awarded the funding as part of a £6m package to help accelerate development in Tees Valley.

Twenty existing terraced homes in South Bank will also be refurbished to provide energy efficient accommodation, said the council.

Lynn Pallister, cabinet member for housing and neighbourhood renewal, said: "This is key funding, absolutely essential if we are to deliver our vision for Greater Eston."
