Plans have been submitted for a £100m development at a Teesside village which will include 780 new homes.

Wynyard Park Ltd want to build a retirement village with 220 properties and 780 homes at Wynyard Park.

The company say the scheme will "boost" the economy by bringing "vital" new jobs and "substantial investment" to the area.

If planning permission is granted by Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, work could begin on the site next year.

Chris Musgrave, chief executive of Wynyard Park Ltd, said: "If approved, this development will not only bring a substantial boost to the local economy but many hundreds of jobs will be created as a result in these current economically challenging times."

Mr Musgrave said the development would generate a spend of about £2.9m in the local area each year.
