Swainby Road, Stockton

This photograph shows the bulldozers at work during the final phase of the demolition of homes on the Swainby Road Estate, Stockton-on-Tees. This programme commenced in year 2014, as part of a Stockton Council housing old-for-new regeneration housing project. The £10m project was expected to take five years to complete, and was undertaken after residents were invited to a consultation event to find out what was planned for the area, along with details of the new family homes planned for this once highly popular, but now rundown estate. New residents were expected to move in, on a phased intake tenants scheme commencing in Autumn 2014.
