Green light given for ‘luxury’ residential development in Northumberland

Plans for a new ‘luxury’ residential scheme in Northumberland have been given the go-ahead.

Northumberland County Council has granted planning permission to developer Ashford Residential Ltd for the construction of 18 apartments on land to the east of Cottingwood Lane in Morpeth.

Designed by Newcastle-based JDDK Architects working with the Newcastle office of development consultancy, Lichfields, the application was initially submitted in June and has been amended to stay in keeping with the surrounding area.

The development has been designed in the style of two pairs of semi-detached houses of two storeys each, with an additional limited third storey in the roof.

Lichfields’ planning director, Alastair Willis, commented: “This is a fantastic development, adopting the high-quality design principles, and reflecting the scale and character of the surrounding streets.

“The design team has worked together for three years to achieve a scheme which is befitting of the site and surrounding area, delivering a positive addition to the Morpeth townscape.

“Furthermore the development will support 50 construction jobs and boost the local economy by over £7m.”

Ashford residential director, Chris Carlisle, added: ““The planning committee’s decision is a huge milestone for Ashford Residential in the development of this project.

“We have worked with a great team for three years to realise a scheme of such high quality which is befitting of this part of Morpeth.”
