Meeting Housing Needs
The site will provide a range of family homes that will help to meet local housing needs, including the potential provision of new affordable homes within the development.
Public Open Space
Our proposals will include the creation of new open space for the benefit of local people and new residents alike, including public realm and Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS).
Our proposals will deliver any necessary highways works, with the detailed design and timescales for implementation to be agreed with the highways authority. This includes financial contributions towards the completion of the Ryhope/Doxford Park Link Road.
Our proposals will create new retail opportunities and support existing local businesses. They will help create additional employment through new opportunities for local sub-contractors and the supply chain.
Our proposals will deliver energy efficient homes and will include measures to help reduce reliance on private vehicles - including financial contributions towards public transport and subsidised bus services.
Land is being provided within the site to facilitate the provision of community uses including contributions towards education facilities, allotments and sport and recreation facilities.
