Economic benefits

  • Around £3m new homes bonus monies to be paid to Gateshead Borough Council
  • Additional council tax revenue for Gateshead Borough Council provided by the new homes
  • Road and traffic flow improvements created by the funding of a bypass by the new homes development
  • The development will help to sustain local services
  • It could also increase demand for local shops or encourage new shops to open

Social benefits

  • There will be green space, footpaths, play facilities and – most importantly a section of bypass taking cars away from the village

Environmental benefits

  • Wildlife corridors – we will protect the Tanfield Railway path and other footpath routes
  • Green infrastructure – increases walking and cycling in the area
