Newcastle property developer given green light for £6.5m development
A Newcastle property developer has been granted planning permission for the first phase of a new housing development in Gateshead.
LOK Developments, part of Newcastle-based Morton Group, had the development approved by Gateshead Council’s Planning and Development Committee on 28 October.
The new development, at Streetgate near Sunniside,will include 17 new homes built across an 8,003m site with views over farmland and the Tyne Valley.
There are plans to build three further phases on the site which will provide up to 50 new homes. Residents will be close to the restaurants, shops, and schools of Sunniside, as well as the retail hubs of the Metrocentre and Team Valley.
Chris Nunn, business development director at Kapex Construction, said: “We’re delighted to achieve planning permission for this lovely development on the A692 behind The Cottage in Streetgate.”
He continued: “These beautifully designed modern homes with large windows are set in a stunning landscape in a very desirable village close to Sunniside and Whickham.
“It’s a great development in a fantastic location and we can’t wait to start work on building these homes as phase one of our overall four-phase development.”
