Calls for proposed Highthorn mine to be rejected as Government pledges to phase-out coal

Controversial Highthorn opencast mine plans recommended for approval
28 Jun 2016 By Simon Meechan


Gary Morgan, business development manager (coal) at Banks Mining, with a visitor to the recent exhibition of the Highthorn proposals that Banks put on in Widdrington Station

Controversial proposals to open a surface coal mine near Druridge Bay have been recommended for approval by Northumberland County Council despite thousands of objections.

The application by the Banks Group for an opencast mine at Highthorn near Widdrington in Northumberland is set to be considered by Northumberland County Council’s planning committee on Tuesday. The Banks Group wants to dig three million tonnes of coal by 2023 from the site, west of Druridge Bay’s beach and dunes at Highthorn.

Campaigners fear the opencast mine will cause irreparable damage to the land and wildlife. A petition objecting to the mine on grounds it would damage ecosystems has been signed by 11,239 people .

A report by council planning officers said noise and disturbance caused by the mine will be at “acceptable levels” while mitigation measures will keep it under control.

The 250 hectares of agricultural land lost will be reinstated when the mine is decommissioned and the site is restored. Although the mine will affect geese population in the area, planning officers are satisfied Banks is proposing suitable measures which will deem any negative impact on the area as acceptable.

Calls for proposed Highthorn mine to be rejected as Government pledges to phase-out coal
By Michael Muncaster 16 November 2016



The Government’s pledge to phase-out coal by 2025 undermines plans for an open cast coal mine close to a Northumberland beauty spot, campaigners have said.

Ministers have launched a consultation on how it plans to close all coal-fired power stations within the next decade and restrict their use by 2023. Greg Clark, the Energy Secretary, said the move sent a clear message that the UK was a good place to invest in clean energy.

Campaigners have backed the plans but said the Government should now block the proposed coal mine at Highthorn, west of the beach at Druridge Bay, given the UK was no longer planning to burn the fuel.

The proposals by Banks Mining for an open cast coal mine at Highthorn, between Widdrington and Druridge Bay, were given the green light by Northumberland County Council in July.

Go-ahead for new homes at Ellington

by David Black, The Journal, September 15th 2011


MULTI-MILLION pound plans to redevelop two former Northumberland colliery sites will finally go before county councillors next week – more than six years after the last of them closed.

The projects – drawn up by Britain’s biggest mining company, UK Coal – envisage 500 new homes, employment units and shops to transform the disused sites at neighbouring Ellington and Lynemouth.

Housing-led regeneration proposals were first submitted by UK Coal’s property arm, Harworth Estates, more than two years ago, and there have been protracted discussions with council planning officials prior to the outline schemes being put before councillors next week.

At Ellington Colliery – whose closure in January 2005 finally ended the region’s once-mighty links with deep mining – Harworth Estates proposes 300 houses, almost 20,000sq ft of offices, 18,622sq ft of shopping space and eight units where people can both live and work.

At the 65-acre Lynemouth Colliery site, it is planned to build 200 homes, 20,000sq ft of industrial units, six acres of open storage and five live/work units.

400 homes planned for old colliery site
23rd October 2014

A major development plan has been submitted that could see 400 houses built in a Northumberland village.

Harworth Estates has put forward the proposal for the former Ellington Colliery site as it seeks outline planning permission. The development would also include small-scale retail provision, improvements to Ellington Business Centre, a heritage park and play areas.

In addition, a full planning application has been submitted to provide two full-size pitches and a mini-soccer pitch for Ellington Juniors FC, with potential for a clubhouse. The application states: “Overall, the delivery of new, contemporary housing, designed to a high standard, along with the associated retail, business and play facilities will lift the status and quality of the village, sustain existing services and attract new people to the area who can contribute further to the community and the local economy.”

The colliery site has been vacant since the pit closed in 2005.

Full details of the proposed development would follow if the outline application is granted, but Harworth Estates says the housing will vary in size and tenure, and could include bungalows.

Huge mixed-use scheme set for approval
By Matthew Ord 1st June 2015

Plans for a mixed-use Northumberland development which includes up to 400 homes, retail space and football pitches have been recommended for approval.

The proposal by Harworth Estates is a hybrid application seeking outline permission on the site of the former Ellington Colliery. The 45.3-acre site is currently vacant and has been since the closure of the mine in 2005. The majority of the colliery buildings were cleared some years ago. As well as the 400 homes, a small-scale convenience retail store to the north of the site has been proposed with associated car parking.

Also included in the proposals is a detailed application for the provision of football pitches which will be located on agricultural land at the south of the site. The plans are for two full-sized football pitches (FA standard) which will be utilised by Ellington Juniors FC along with a smaller junior pitch.

Northumberland County Council will meet tomorrow (2 June 2015) to discuss the plans.

Go-ahead for new homes at Ellington
Ben O’Connell 9 December 2016



The first phase of a housing development in Ellington was given the go-ahead this week.

A reserved matters application for land south of Aiden Grove and Lynemouth Road was unanimously approved at Tuesday’s meeting of the county council’s planning committee.

An outline bid for up to 400 homes on the former Ellington Colliery site was approved in August 2015 before full plans for a Co-op store were then given the nod in November last year. The first phase is for 99 of the proposed 400 homes, which would consist of 14 two-bedroom apartments, four two-bedroom bungalows, 15 other two-bedroom properties, 30 three-bedroom townhouses and 36 three and four-bedroom detached properties.

While the development was largely welcomed, the one disappointment was the fact that the site will only provide 3.5 per cent afforable housing, or 14 homes out of the 400. This was highlighted at the meeting by Stephen To, who welcomed the scheme other than the affordable housing. “It’s not good enough for the people of Ellington that for 50 years they have not had any social housing,” he said.

The applicant is the county council’s development company Arch and Coun Richard Dodd pointed out that the Arch applications that came before the committee tended to have very little affordable housing. However, in this case, the section 106 agreement was signed by the previous developer, Harworth Estates, before Arch became involved in the scheme. There is also the opportunity to reappraise the situation once remedial work – likely to be costly and the reason for the reduced affordable housing – on the site has taken place.

Completion nears on Alnwick scheme

From today's insider Media Limited @ http://www.insidermedia.com/insider/...alnwick-scheme
Completion nears on Alnwick scheme
Matthew Ord 13 December 2016

The first phase of a £2.5m housing development in Alnwick is nearing completion.

Thomas Percy Close, which is being project-managed by Newcastle-based Silverstone Building Consultancy alongside main contractor Gentoo Tolent Construction, will comprise 15 three- and four-bedroom executive homes on the site of the former Thomas Percy School.

Northumberland-based developer Lindisfarne Homes secured planning permission for the redevelopment of the 2.3-acre site a year ago. The first phase of the development is being marketed by Bradley Hall and is due to complete this week, allowing the first eight occupiers to move in before Christmas. A further two have been sold.

Louise Stewart, associate director at Silverstone Building Consultancy, said: "It's great to see the first phase of development reaching completion in time to allow the new occupiers to take up residence before Christmas. As project managers we take the lead role in the coordination and monitoring of the design team and we are working closely with Gentoo Tolent to ensure efficient delivery of the remainder of the development, which is due for overall completion in February 2017."

Nick Dawe, director of Lindisfarne Homes, which builds properties throughout Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, added: "We are delighted to have been able to breathe new life into this significant site by bringing forward this exclusive development. As anticipated it is proving very popular and we are confident the remaining five homes will be sold soon."

Residents split over housing development that could bring 100 jobs to Northumberland

Residents split over housing development that could bring 100 jobs to Northumberland
By Michael Muncaster 9 January 2017


Image of a rural development by Hindhaugh Homes (Photo: handout)

People are split over a planned £55m housing development in Northumberland that could create more than 100 jobs.

Developer Hindhaugh Homes has submitted a planning application to build up to 500 new homes on land off Acklington Road in Amble. The proposals include a mix of two to four bedroom properties with a “provision” allowed for affordable housing. The land is currently used for agriculture and sits on the route of the old Amble Branch railway line, which was discontinued in the 1960s.

Amble Community Team chairwoman Andrea Hewitson said: “I think it is a good idea for more housing as there is definitely a need for more affordable homes. It does mean there is going to be another 1,000 people so something is going to have to be done to improve the infrastructure as services are already stretched.”

Speaking at the time, NLP planning director Phil Jones said: “The site is sustainably located and well-suited to residential development. Northumberland County Council’s emerging core strategy identifies a need for 600 new homes in Amble between 2011 and 2031. The development of this site for approximately 500 new homes will contribute towards meeting this need. As well as range of attractive houses this site will also include an element of affordable housing and the potential for new public open space and a children’s play area.”

Are 900 homes heading for Northumberland? Planners to rule on three key developments
ByMichael Muncaster 3 February 2017

Plans to build more than 900 homes across Northumberland could be green-lighted next week.

The proposals for 715, 121 and 90 homes respectively are centred around the east of the county and are due to go before planning chiefs. All three developments have been earmarked for approval when Northumberland County Council’s strategic planning committee meets on Tuesday. Developers Barratt Homes North East and Keepmoat Homes want to build 715 homes on land off Beacon Lane, in Cramlington.

The scheme also includes creating two grass playing pitches, a multi-use games area, a pavilion with changing facilities and three play areas.

The plans have been recommended for approval subject to a section 106 agreement, which will see the developers contribute £5.5m to education and build 143 affordable homes. In April 2015, the former South East Area planning committee supported similar plans but the applicants chose not to progress the scheme at the time due to concerns over financial viability.

Cramlington west councillor, Barry Flux, said: “It is clear that having been passed before, it is enviable it will be approved again. I think residents have been ground down by the plans going in again but they have already raised concerns about more cars being on the road and the impact on the infrastructure. I just hope the committee will listen to their views and try to find the best solution.”

Proposals to build more than 900 homes in Northumberland have been approved
By Michael Muncaster 7 February 2017


Plans to build 715 homes on land off Beacon Lane in Cramlington. (Photo: handout)

Plans to build more than 900 homes in Northumberland have been given the green light.

Developments in Cramlington , Widdrington Station and Hadston were all given approval by Northumberland County Council’s strategic planning committee on Tuesday.

Developers Barratt Homes North East and Keepmoat Homes were granted permission to build 715 homes on land off Beacon Lane in Cramlington. The scheme includes creating two grass playing pitches, a multi-use games area, a pavilion with changing facilities and three play areas. As part of the plans, the developers will contribute £5.5m to education and build 143 affordable homes. The councillors heard the former South East Area planning committee had backed the plans in April 2015 but the developers chose not to progress the scheme at the time.

The committee unanimously approved the development, with Coun Ian Swithenbank saying he was happy to see the plans finally go ahead.He said: “It is really pleasing to see more housing being built as more people want to live in Cramlington. Northumberland is becoming increasingly popular so we have got to get the infrastructure right. It is important we have affordable housing available as it helps those living on the lower salaries.”

The committee also approved plans to build 121 homes on land west of Grange Road in Widdrington Station and 90 homes off Hadston Road in Hadston. Concerns over loss of privacy, increased traffic and the impact on wildlife had been raised about both applications. However, the planning committee unanimously approved both developments.

The first phase of a housing development in Ellington was given the go-ahead this week.

A reserved matters application for land south of Aiden Grove and Lynemouth Road was unanimously approved at Tuesday’s meeting of the county council’s planning committee.

Work starts on homes at former colliery site
17 March 2017


An architect's impression of how a section of the new development on the former Ellington Colliery site will look.

The building of new housing on the site of the former Ellington Colliery has got under way.

Phase one, 99 properties, was granted planning approval in December and Ascent Homes has started work on the family homes and bungalows. Once completed, there will be 30 three-bedroom townhouses, 18 three-bedroom detached houses, 18 four-bedroom detached houses, 15 two-bedroom houses, 14 two-bedroom apartments and four two-bedroom bungalows – 14 of this number will be affordable homes, which will be prioritised for local residents.

Ascent Homes acquired the site from Harworth Estates last year and it has exchanged contracts on the phase two land for an additional 85 properties to be built on the site. They will also be a range of bungalows and two, three and four-bedroom properties. In addition, there are proposals to provide a retail unit on the site.

Duncan Bowman, Ascent Homes development director, said: “Our aim is to offer an additional high-quality range of family houses and bungalows, adding a new dimension to the housing market in Northumberland. We are working very hard to develop the highest quality specifications for this historic site.”

The project is expected to employ up to 140 people in construction, providing new job or apprenticeship opportunities for local people and contracts for local suppliers.
