Story Homes has submitted plans to redevelop the former Marley Tiles factory site in Northumberland, near Ebchester on the County Durham border. The proposed scheme will transform this vacant brownfield site into a beautiful new development of 61 high quality new homes.
The scheme has been sensitively designed, taking into consideration the local landscape context, and includes three distinctive character areas set across the three different levels of the site. The development process has involved a public consultation and ongoing engagement with Key Stakeholders to inform the design process, making sure the development will represent locally distinctive Northumberland values.
The ‘Farm’, ‘Village’ and ‘Woodland’ character areas will be defined by the choice of elevational treatments and will fit together seamlessly through the inclusion of landscaping and open space areas, with a village green at the heart of the newly created community. The development includes improved habitats for wildlife, and the new homes will benefit from various sustainability features, such as electric vehicle charging points, low carbon heating systems and triple A rated appliances.
