Project description

Banks Property developed this housing site on agricultural  land to the west of Hazlerigg and was awarded  planning permission to build around 500 much needed homes including a mix of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes – but predominantly 3 and 4 bedroom homes.


The site was previously undeveloped, agricultural land bounded by housing and industrial estates to the north and east; allotment gardens to the south east; and Morley Hill Farm to the west. It was allocated for housing in the Newcastle Gateshead One Core Strategy, March 2015.

Economic benefits

• In addition to around £1.15m council tax revenue, the project will generate a new homes bonus (paid by central Government) spread over six years, of about £7m for Newcastle City Council to spend on improvements and essential services within the area
• The development is also providing construction jobs for local contractors and suppliers
• Families that move into the area will increase footfall for local shops and businesses in Hazlerigg and the Brunswick Industrial Estate
• The project could also potentially provide additional funding to go towards education within the local area

Public Footpaths Through Nature Reserve

Social benefits

• The project is providing new, high quality family homes to help retain families within the local area and support local services.
• Affordable homes will help young families get on the property ladder, in the area where they grew up, as well as attracting new families to the area too, which will increase the spend in the local economy and strengthen the existing community
• It is also maintaining existing, and creating new, public footpaths
• The project will protect the neighbouring allotments and has already enhanced the neighbouring football club, through a grant for new perimeter fencing

Nature Reserve

Environmental benefits

• The homes are being built to modern energy efficiency standards by Miller Homes and Bellway
• The creation of a linear park through the site will provide extra open space for local people to enjoy, creating opportunities for walking and cycling in the area
• The project will also address drainage issues in the area
