There is actually a much better piece of land a couple of minutes from there which would be much more suitable. The land at the end of Doxford Business Park.

Durham Road from the A19 is one of the most scenic approaches into Sunderland and allowing developers to build on any park land is a very bad idea as before we know it we will have no greenery left. The land was left to the residents of Herrington by Sunderland Rural district council in the 1950s. It belonged to the NCB apparently who sold it with a covenant that the land was not to be build upon so I reckon the council are p....ing in the wind as they say regarding this bit of land. I appreciate Sunderland needs to grow and the need for more housing but while parts of Pennywell stands desolate the need to use green fields sites is not the way to go. I think the development of Doxford Park is excellent and perhaps Sunderland council should use that as a future model. Demolish older housing and replace it with more modern, "greener" buildings, however that is expensive compared to building on green fields. Also until Sunderland council sort out the city centre right we may not need to build all these extra houses as nobody will want to live here.

Regarding the Park in question,----- I posted this article a few days ago on the Horticultural thread,---it's an interesting read,---cheers,


This from the Sunderland Echo,--

The little piece of Sunderland tranquility - cows and all



Fifty years ago, a Wearside park became the centre of the public’s attention - and so did the cows who graze there.

It was the day when Middle Herrington Park - and its resident animals - were the topic of talks to protect them from boundary changes which would come into effect in Sunderland 48 hours later.

Middle Herrington Park.

Councillors gathered at the park gates to talk over the issue and in one fell swoop, they came up with a plan to ensure the future for the whole of the park.

We are indebted to Douglas Smith, who is the chairman of the Herrington Heritage Group, for providing us with the background to the 50th anniversary of that day.

“The reason for the gathering in 1967 of the local Rural District Councillors that day,” said the heritage group’s report, “was to declare not just the top part but the whole park as a place of recreation for the people of Herrington in perpetuity.”

Planning app in for Penshaw House:

17/01632/LB4 | The proposed development is for the Conversion of Penshaw House, the retention of the walled garden and the development of a high quality housing scheme on the adjacent land providing a total of 19 Units. Conversion of Penshaw House- A Grade II listed Georgian property into a 4 bedroom family home - The proposal is for a sympathetic conversion which will essentially maintain the existing room layout without the need for substantial subdivision. Following the fire within the building in October 2015 a number of original features were lost or damaged. These will be repaired or replaced with new elements to match the existing where possible. Re-use of building footprint adjacent to the Walled Garden as 1no. single storey units. - The existing wall will be repaired and incorporated within the development of a new unit to sit within the previous buildings footprint. The intention is to remove the most recent brickwork additions and return the wall to its original height as determined by the stone facing to one side. Provision of a further 17 houses with a wider range of house sizes and types to meet established needs in line with the local market demand, and to deliver an inclusive development for a sustainable cross section of the community. The proposals for redevelopment include a number of dwellings which respond to the key characteristics of the area; and seek a balance between the local vernacular and slightly more grandiose architecture of Penshaw House. | Penshaw House Community Home Penshaw Stables Penshaw Houghton-le-Spring DH4 7LB

An aerial picture giving view of the former Fire & Rescue Service Headquarters to be seen on Northern Echo article, http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/new...ousing_estate/ from 16/06/15



EXTRACT

A MAJOR housebuilder has been given the green light to build 50 homes on a former fire station site.

A Durham County Council county planning committee granted outline planning permission for the former Durham fire station plot, on Finchale Road, Framwellgate Moor to be used for housing back in January 2014.

The County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service vacated the site, moving its headquarters to Belmont Business Park, its training to a new facility at Bowburn South Industrial Estate and building a new city fire station off the A691 at Sniperley, which cost £5m and was officially opened by the Bishop of Durham, the Right Reverend Paul Butler, in March.


Some screen prints of Google Maps Street View images showing some views of what the Fire & Rescue Service Headquarters looked like - lucky that a few locations give "old" images from August 2014

Exclusive gents' club closes after 126 years

EXTRACT

AN EXCLUSIVE gentlemen’s club that has counted among its members Earls, Lord Lieutenants, High Sheriffs, Mayors and MPs has closed after 126 years.

The Durham County Club was formed in 1890 by a committee of 18 leading businessmen and aristocrats, including the Earl of Durham, the Marquis of Londonderry, a knight of the realm, a priest and two MPs.

Based in a three-storey, red brick Listed townhouse at 52 Old Elvet, Durham City, for many years the club had close links with the Durham Light Infantry and its successor The Rifles, as well as hosting Crown Court judges’ lunches and numerous High Sheriffs

However, in recent years usage has declined and the club has been forced to close, with the building’s contents put up for sale.

A spokesman for the club committee blamed increasing pressure on businessmen’s time, saying: “Business and professional gentlemen are today only able to take lunch breaks on special occasion

Plans to turn home of Durham's former gentlemen's club into flats

Original features of the 19th century building, including cupboards, ventilators and cooking ranges will be retained as evidence as to how it has been used in the past.

The Durham County Club was formed in 1890 by a committee of 18 leading businessmen and aristocrats, including the Earl of Durham, the Marquis of Londonderry, a knight of the realm, a priest and two MPs.

For many years, the club had close links with the Durham Light Infantry and its successor The Rifles, as well as hosting Crown Court judges’ lunches and numerous High Sheriffs.

It closed at the start of last year and its contents were sold at auction in May, with items including dinner services and glassware, hunting prints, a wooden choir bench from Durham Cathedral and prints of members of the Royal family.

This from the Northern Echo,--

Go ahead for flats in Durham city centre



AN empty and overgrown patch of land in a city centre street is to be turned into a block of flats.

James Charlton has been given permission to build the 12 flats on land next to 24 The Avenue, in Durham.

The application was approved by a Durham County Council planning committee, which had previously rejected a similar application because they said the layout suggested they could only be used as student accommodation

That is quite a few units- 49- , C3 dwelling uses shown below!

C3 Dwellinghouses - this class is formed of 3 parts:
C3(a) covers use by a single person or a family (a couple whether married or not, a person related to one another with members of the family of one of the couple to be treated as members of the family of the other), an employer and certain domestic employees (such as an au pair, nanny, nurse, governess, servant, chauffeur, gardener, secretary and personal assistant), a carer and the person receiving the care and a foster parent and foster child.
C3(b): up to six people living together as a single household and receiving care e.g. supported housing schemes such as those for people with learning disabilities or mental health problems.
C3(c) allows for groups of people (up to six) living together as a single household. This allows for those groupings that do not fall within the C4 HMO definition, but which fell within the previous C3 use class, to be provided for i.e. a small religious community may fall into this section as could a homeowner who is living with a lodger.

I thought the Gilbridge House was to be part of the MAC Trust and for cultural purpose,--and was to house art work shops,----anyway,---suppose this building could be used as Student Accommodation or Apartments,--and if so,--it's better the building will be occupied rather than left it deteriorate,---it's in a very good location too,---so wonder who the Developer is?---cheers.

The good thing is that around keel square and vaux, there will be plenty of potential buildings to satisfy Mac trusts aspirations.

I initially posted his on the student accom thread incorrectly. Now the plans are up you can see they're individual self contained apartments with ground floor retail:

http://www.sunderland.gov.uk/PlanDM/...ontent=obj.pdf

Slightly confusing as there's two lots of proposed plans on the application, could be wrong but I think the others have changed as there wouldn't be the space to accommodate both.

Seems to be a high spec as the apartments have en suites and look a decent size. Liked the idea of it being part of MACQ and then even student accom but still good news for me.

Means it's more than likely that the MACQ trust have taken the police station site and hopefully comprehensively redevelop it....couldn't see even our inept council selling it to someone else and potentially ruining the MACQ vision.

Yeah agree,---and pleased the building won't stand empty for too long,---as for MACQ,--lets hope there plans for the rest of this area can come to fruition,---and we have to hope that the New Courts Complex will still happen---so it would free up the Gilbridge Courts,--we can only hope,---cheers.
