STOCKTON developers Mandale have been given the go-ahead to begin building the second phase of a £50m commercial village off Portrack Lane.

Plans for the 300,000sq ft scheme for offices, industrial and warehouse space, feature a pioneering green travel scheme and sustainable energy technology.

Jeremy Good of planning consultants England and Lyle said the plan was supported by an “unprecedented level of green travel measures”.

“They will include targets to reduce single occupancy vehicle trips to the site and encourage employees to car share and use alternative forms of transport, including public transport, cycling and on foot.”

He said on-site renewable energy would generate 10% of requirements and was likely to feature solar panels and wind turbines, as well as “other innovative energy saving measures”. Mandale will move to new offices on its already complete trade park on Cheltenham Way on January 2.
