Green light for £6.5m development with views over Tyne Valley

30 November 2020 | General

The first phase of a £6.5m development in Gateshead has been given the go ahead.

The-17 home development at Streetgate, near Sunniside, was approved at Gateshead Council’s Planning and Development Committee on October 28, 2020.

The four-bedroom semi-detached homes will be built on an 8003 m² site at the edge of farmland, with countryside views across the Tyne Valley.

Chris Nunn, business development director at Kapex Construction, said: “We’re delighted to achieve planning permission for this lovely development on the A692 behind The Cottage in Streetgate.

“These beautifully designed modern homes with large windows are set in a stunning landscape in a very desirable village close to Sunniside and Whickham.

“It’s a great development in a fantastic location and we can’t wait to start work on building these homes as phase one of our overall four-phase development.”

Designed by BDN Ltd, Kapex Construction will start building the homes in early 2021, with completion expected in summer 2022.

Kapex Construction, part of Newcastle-based Morton Group, plans to build three more phases on the site, providing up to 50 homes in the suburb of Gateshead.
