Detailed Planning Application

West Middle Callerton, Newcastle upon Tyne

Story Homes has submitted detailed proposals to build 244 high quality new homes as part of a wider joint reserved matters application for 507 homes on this site. This follows Newcastle City Council granting outline planning permission for the principle of the development of the site in November 2016.

Our proposals would create a sustainable and integrated development that would make an important contribution to Newcastle upon Tyne’s housing supply. The proposed development would deliver a mix of detached, semi-detached, terraced dwellings and apartments, and some of these new homes will be affordable.

Full details of the application that has been submitted can be viewed on Newcastle City Council’s website using the application reference 2015/1543/02/RES. A decision on the application is anticipated in Spring 2018.
