100 new homes planned for Gateshead Quayside in vital economic boost to the area

PLANS to transform a derelict site into 100 new residential apartments on Gateshead Quayside have been submitted to Gateshead Council.

The development to the south of Fletcher Road, Gateshead, has been proposed by UK Land Estates and Bellway. The £16.5 million proposed development is expected to create 81 new jobs over the three-year build period, thereby giving a significant economic boost to the area and supporting the North East’s levelling up agenda.

The site has been vacant and derelict for over twenty years since the closure of the railway goods yard in the 1990s, however, should the application be successful, it will soon provide a mix of one- and two-bedroom homes across three modern apartment blocks.

Tim Witty, our development director, said: “We are passionate about facilitating growth, development and regeneration within our region and we believe that the proposed development on Fletcher Road will do just that.

“Located only a few minutes’ walk from both Gateshead and Newcastle, the site will provide young professionals and small families an exciting opportunity to buy much needed high-quality property within the city centre.

“The transformation of the current plot will play a big part in supporting the ongoing revitalisation of the town centre, and as well as appealing to locals, we hope it will also bring new people to the area.”

Mark Gabriele, land and planning manager for Bellway North East, said: “Bellway has been delivering new housing on key brownfield and regeneration sites for over 70 years, and our plans for the re-development of the former goods yard at Gateshead Quayside reflects our heritage exactly.

“Through our partnership with UK Land Estates, we are keen to move forward with our plans to revitalise a disused and undervalued piece of land within Gateshead to provide up to 100 new residential apartments for the city, unlocking the potential of this brownfield site and supporting the continued transformation of the area, as well as creating employment opportunities both directly and indirectly for the scheme.

“We now look forward to entering a period of constructive consultation with Gateshead Council as our proposed plans for the site are reviewed. If the plans are approved, we will look to begin building work on the site in late 2021.”
