Housing on former hospital site

July 21, 2010

Community consultations on the housing plans for the redevelopment of part of the former Shotley Bridge Hospital site are expected to take place mid-October.

The developers have now exchanged contracts with the Homes and Communities Agency and they are are looking to submit a Reserved Matters application by the end of November, with planning approval anticipated in February/March next year.

Outline planning permission was granted in April 2008 with agreement to provide funding for improvements to the Derwent Walk and Shotley Bridge village centre.

Story Homes were selected as the preferred developer in May 2009.

Cumbria-based housebuilder Story Homes were celebrating last month after scooping a major award in the hotly contested ‘House of the Year’ category in the prestigious Scottish Home awards.
