Coast and Country Housing to start Redcar estate revamp

Hundreds of houses are to be demolished next month ahead of a £30m estate revamp on Teesside.

Housing association Coast and Country will flatten vacant properties on The Closes in Redcar to make way for 300 new homes.

The layout of the area will be altered to deter anti-social behaviour with alleyways and courtyards being removed.

The five-year project received a £2.5m grant from the Homes and Communities Agency.
