Permission sought for new family homes in Elswick

April 2016

Story Homes has submitted outline planning proposals for up to 100 high quality new homes in Elswick.

The proposed development would see a mix of family homes, on land North of Mill Lane, some of which will be designated as affordable for local people.

Our planner David Hayward said: “Our proposals would create a sustainable and integrated development that would make an important contribution to the district’s housing supply.

“The development will bring a number of benefits to the area including job creation and security for local subcontractors and a knock on effect for the local supply chain.”

The development will be centred around an attractive pond area which will provide a focal attraction for the development as well as having ecological benefits. Plans also include landscaped areas of open space throughout the development.

Pedestrian and cycle links are proposed to link the development with the local area.
