Plans submitted for works on "vibrant" South Shields riverside development
A planning application has been submitted for works to create a “vibrant” riverside development at disused docks in South Shield.
South Tyneside Council has applied for planning permission to carry out civil engineering works to the former industrial site and disused docks at Holborn, South Shields.
The project will see a new quay edge wall installed, regrading of the site, decontamination of the ground and the raising of the former dry docks to overcome flooding issues.
Three of the docks are set to be restored, preserving the area’s industrial heritage.
This work will facilitate plans to transform the brownfield site into a living, working and cultural quarter.
If plans are approved, work is expected to get underway this autumn.
Tracey Dixon, leader of South Tyneside Council, commented: “If approved, these enabling works would prepare what has been a largely derelict area for many years for the transformation into a mixed use development that would deliver new homes and office space and create hundreds of new jobs.”
