Grey Towers is a high quality residential development located at Nunthorpe involving the construction of 295 3-6 bed homes within a 42.5 hectare site with construction phased over a 4-5 year period. The plot sizes and public open space are designed to create a village centre and the dwellings will be designed to define and enclose attractive streets and lanes.

The site was formerly in agricultural use with development demanding the use of extensive ‘Sustainable Urban Drainage’ systems in order to deal with the surface water runoff from the development and its increased areas of hard surfacing. Swales, ponds and oversized pipes have all been included within the infrastructure design.

In order to achieve planning approval Cundall also provided transportation services in the form of extensive traffic modelling and capacity assessment of a number of junctions linking the site to the A19 at Teesside.
