Former Dunston Hill Hospital


Story Homes has submitted reserved matters proposals for a development of 46 high quality new homes and the site-wide redevelopment of land at the former Dunston Hill hospital, north of the Whickham Highway, Whickham. This brownfield site has been identified by Gateshead Council for redevelopment.

Our proposals would create a sustainable development that would make an important contribution to the Council’s housing supply. The proposed development would deliver a mix of house types including three, four and five-bedroom semi-detached, and detached dwellings of which five three-bedroom homes will be affordable.

Full details of the submitted application can be viewed on Gateshead Council’s website:
