Land North of Burdon Lane, Ryhope


Story Homes has submitted detailed proposals to build 149 high quality new homes as part of proposals for a wider development of approximately 1,000 new homes, retail provision, sports and recreation facilities, community uses and open space on land north of Burdon Lane in Ryhope.

Along with housebuilders Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon, Story Homes has been working with a suite of consultants to develop the proposals, which will include new homes, retail provision, sports and recreational facilities, community uses and open space.

The proposals would create a sustainable and integrated development that would make an important contribution to Sunderland’s housing supply. The proposed development would deliver a mix of house types of which 10% will be affordable.

This site is proposed for such uses in Sunderland City Council’s South Sunderland Growth Area Supplementary Planning Document, which was subject to public consultation in the summer of 2017.

Full details of the submitted application can be viewed on Sunderland City Councils website using the application reference 19/01497/HY4. A decision on the application is anticipated in autumn 2020.
