Project to reduce congestion on Cowpen Road is completed

Blyth roadworks: Driver disruption expected as three-month work is set to begin
By Tom Eden 19 January 2017


Cowpen Road, Blyth

Roadworks have started in Blyth aimed at reducing congestion on Cowpen Road, with drivers warned to expect up to three months of disruption.

The £740,000 scheme to help traffic flow on the busy Blyth road have finally begun after a long campaign by Labour’s Cowpen councillor Susan Davey, who has spoken of her delight that the improvements are going ahead.

She said: “It’s great that this long-awaited and desperately needed scheme is finally getting underway. While there will inevitably be some disruption, as with any roadworks, we will be working to keep this to a minimum. It’s important we bear in mind why this work is being done - to improve safety, reduce congestion and improve journey times for the thousands of people who use this road every day. We have always stressed that a key part of the scheme will be careful monitoring of the improvements to ensure traffic is moving better and I’m confident that Cowpen Road will be a safer and a freer flowing road in the future.”

The work will be carried out in three consecutive stages. The first phase involves the removal of the traffic lights from Tynedale Drive and improvement of the traffic lights at Coniston Road. The council says this will make traffic flow on Cowpen Road at these junctions more efficient.

Starting on Saturday, January 21, Tynedale Drive and the right turn off Cowpen Road into Coniston Road will be temporarily closed. On Sunday, January 22, the traffic lights at the Tynedale Drive junction will be switched off and works to the signals at the Coniston Road junction will be carried out meaning that end of Coniston Road will be closed but Cowpen Road will remain open. Then, from Monday, January 23, the Tynedale Drive junction will be widened, with the work expected to take around a fortnight. Resurfacing work will also be carried out on consecutive Sunday evenings from January 29 with main road traffic diverted via the industrial estate to minimise disruption.

Bit of an over run on the time taken to complete the project.

Project to reduce congestion on Cowpen Road is completed
David Sedgwick 20 June 2017


Coun Glen Sanderson, cabinet member for environment and local services, and local county councillors Susan and Grant Davey with other members of Northumberland County Councils local services team marking completion of the improvement scheme on Cowpen Road.

A comprehensive scheme to improve one of Northumberland’s most congested roads has been completed.

The £740,000 project, carried out in three stages, aims to reduce congestion on Cowpen Road, Blyth. The project involved the removal and improvement of traffic lights, road widening and the creation of an additional lane on the exit from the Asda roundabout. New road markings are also in place on the A189 roundabout and approaches, along with improved road signs.

Coun Glen Sanderson, cabinet member for environment and local services, said: “This scheme is a great credit to our staff who worked tirelessly to get the various stages done as quickly as possible. We did everything we could to minimise disruption and it’s important we bear in mind why this work was done in the first place – to improve safety, reduce congestion and improve journey times for the thousands of people who use this road every day. “Feedback has been very positive and the standard of the work is first class.”

Local County Councillor Susan Davey, who long campaigned for the changes and helped secure funding from the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), said: “It’s fantastic that this long-awaited and desperately needed scheme is finally complete. I am delighted that these adjustments have had a marked improvement on the flow of the traffic. The opening of Spencer Road on the industrial Estate has not only taken away the heavy lorries from the main body of the road but have helped the Port of Blyth to consider the relocation of their entrance. As with all works and an ever increasing number of vehicle on our streets, monitoring of this road will remain a high priority.”

Ray Browning, Programme Manager at the North East LEP, said: “This was an important upgrade to help alleviate pressure at peak times at key junctions benefiting not only the local community but also importantly helping efforts to attract new investment and jobs into the Blyth Riverside Business Park and the enterprise zones sites around Blyth Harbour where the North East LEP is also supporting infrastructure investment.”

Curious. The only area i can see for a new entrance to the port would be to build a road along the back of the primary school on the old bates pit and re open/make the already existing Ann's Row entrance the main one. I thought the old pit had permission for housing, etc on there...hmm... if they didn't do that, lorries would still have to exit onto Cowpen Road from Chain Ferry Road.

[edit] Just looking at the old pit on GMaps, theres already half a road through there to the shipping fuels depot, so i guess it could just be extended a little.

Yes that's what I was thinking, Bates Staithes (Bates Terminal) is now also used for offshore vessels carrying out replenishment and mobbing/demobbing, so requires a direct link. Added to that the Marine Fuel Terminal needs good links, although the fuel appears to come into the port by sea rather than road.

Spartan Hotel, Twelfth Avenue, Blyth

17/00727/FUL | Proposed change of use for the conversion of the Spartan pub into a convenience store including a proposed ground floor extension to the rear | Spartan Hotel Twelfth Avenue Blyth Northumberland NE24 2QA

https://publicaccess.northumberland....=OM38EAQSN3I00

From the Design & Access Statement:

The Public House is believed to have been originally constructed during the 1970s but this date requires verification.

Careful consideration has been given to this planning application with respect to the Spartan Public House where potentially the premises are deemed to provide an Asset of Community Value, thus we propose that only part of the existing Public House be converted into a Convenience Store. In doing so the application will retain a local meeting place as well as providing a much needed community shopping facility available to both to passers-by and local residents whilst helping to create employment within the local area. Due to the extent of internal remodelling - the Public House will also benefit from a full internal update.

Housing developer starts work on two new sites

From today's News Post Leader @ http://www.newspostleader.co.uk/news...ites-1-8633186
Housing developer starts work on two new sites
David Sedgwick 8 July 2017


Miller Homes has opened the doors to its latest showhomes at Barley Meadows in Cramlington.

New showhomes have been unveiled by a housing developer at two sites.

Miller Homes has marked the official launch of its Barley Meadows development in Cramlington and Broadoaks in Bedlington. Prospective buyers can see the four-bedroom Seeger and Tressell showhomes at Barley Meadows, or the four-bedroom Tressell showhome and five-bedroom Buttermere viewhome at Broadoaks.

Prices at Barley Meadows – which is less than a mile-and-a-hal from Cramlington town centre – start at £137,950. The development consists of 192 two, three, four and five-bedroom houses. Prices at Broadoaks – which features three, four and five-bedroom homes – start at £218,950.

Andrew Somerville, regional sales manager at Miller Homes North East, said: “We have seen great demand across all of our South East Northumberland developments in recent months and with a great range of housetypes available at Barley Meadows and Broadoaks, these latest developments are set to be highly sought-after. We have created three stunning showhomes and a superb viewhome which demonstrate to buyers the high standards that every Miller home is built to and will help to show what life can be like at these new developments.”

Plans for Ash Barge Dock given go-ahead

Consultation for barge dock plans
24 February 2017

Proposals to improve the former Blyth Power Station dock – known locally as the Ash Barge Dock – will be on display to the public next week.

Arch has secured funding to upgrade it to allow larger vessels to berth as part of a package of measures to secure jobs and economic growth and ensure all available development land in Cambois is connected to the Port of Blyth.

People can see the plans on Wednesday, March 1, at Cambois Primary School, Cowgate, Cambois, between 1.30pm and 7pm. Representatives from Arch and their consultants will be on hand during the consultation to answer questions and listen to feedback.

The investment and asset-based business, which was set-up by Northumberland County Council in 2012, is leading on the delivery of the East Sleekburn site. It is part of the North East Enterprise Zone and one of the largest available development sites in the North East to provide a premier UK location for a range of energy, marine, oil and gas industries to complement and enhance the Port of Blyth’s existing facilities.

Arch acquired the site in May 2016 and immediately set out a major regeneration programme. The first phase plans for the reclamation of the former Blyth Power Station site were recently approved. They will involve earthworks operations to reclaim the land to create a 16 hectare development area. As a strategic site within Northumberland, it is targeted for significant economic growth and future jobs. T

Following the public consultation, Arch will seek to submit a planning application in March and, subject to approval, start works in Autumn 2017. The total works are expected to take between 12 and 18 months and once completed, Arch is confident private sector investment will follow to provide a significant boost to jobs and the economy of Cambois, Blyth and the Northumberland region as a whole.

Plans for Ash Barge Dock given go-ahead
Ben O’Connell 12 July 2017


Plans to upgrade the former Ash Barge Dock have been approved.

Plans to improve the former Blyth Power Station dock at East Sleekburn – known locally as the Ash Barge Dock – were given the green light last week.

The modifications, including widening, deepening and dredging, plus a temporary compound for processing materials, were unanimously approved by Northumberland County Council’s strategic planning committee. The total works are expected to take between 12 and 18 months.

As the Leader reported in February, Arch has secured funding to upgrade it to allow larger vessels to berth as part of a package of measures to secure jobs and economic growth and ensure all available development land in Cambois is connected to the Port of Blyth.

The first-phase plans for the reclamation of the former Blyth Power Station site were approved earlier this year and will create a 16 hectare development area. As a strategic site within Northumberland, it is targeted for significant economic growth and future jobs. The former Ash Barge Dock has remained derelict since the power station was demolished; the last chimneys came down in 2003.

Moving approval at last Tuesday’s meeting, Coun Trevor Thorne said: “I think the proposals for Energy Central and the Port of Blyth are very exciting.” Coun Jeff Gobin added: “There were concerns in the village when this was first put forward. People came out and spoke to the residents and there’s been no objections so I’m happy to second this.” Coun Gordon Castle said: “This is Blyth heading in the right direction, it’s part of the economic regeneration of the county.”

Dr Pit Park, Bedlington

£110,000 makeover for Bedlington's Dr Pit Park
22 Nov 2016



A £110,000 programme of improvements to spruce up Bedlington’s Dr Pit Park is about to get underway. The project has received funding support from the Banks Mining Community Fund and the SITA Trust (now known as Suez Communities), as well as Northumberland County Council and West Bedlington Town Council.

The award-winning park is in line for a makeover, with a range of improvements set to begin in the coming weeks and be completed in time for summer 2017. The cash will be spent on improving the park's infrastructure and footpaths, with tree-planting, landscaping, a new MUGA (multi-use games area), a SONA interactive dance and play arch, and new play equipment.

Local people will join school pupils and members of the youth service to help plant 23 species of trees as part of a series of community events. These will replace a number of sick and overgrown conifers which are being taken out to improve safety and visibility in the park.

The work is championed by County Councillor Alyson Wallace, who put some of her ward funding towards the scheme. She said: “This project will help to improve the visitor experience as well as the overall attractiveness of the park. And by thinning out some of the older and less healthy trees, we hope to be able to create a more open environment where people feel safer and more confident using the park. I would like to thank all our funding partners for helping to bring the project to fruition, and I am excited to see the results.

Ian Swithenbank, Cabinet Member for Local Services, added: “This is a genuinely exciting programme of work that will have a significant impact on the attractiveness and user friendliness of the park. Local people have already played an active role in helping to design the improvements, and hopefully they will continue to do so with our upcoming series of community events. The tree-planting will introduce healthier, more manageable trees to replace the conifers that have come to dominate the park and are in a poor condition, and this will also help to ensure the park is more open and accessible for everyone to enjoy.”

Historical village square to be protected

Historical village square to be protected
David Sedgwick 20 July 2017


An artist impression of how Cramlington Village Square could have looked.

Councillors have moved to protect a historical village square from any future development.

Proposals had been mooted last year to create a new plaza at Cramlington Village Square. Labour members on Cramlington Town Council had proposed to pave over the area so it could be used as a venue for festivals and other attractions.

More than 2,000 residents signed a petition opposing the changes proposed to the area. But now the Conservative-led council has voted to protect the historic square on a permanent basis.

Councillors Mark Swinburn and Loraine De Simone brought in a motion that sought to permanently protect the square and the surrounding area and also to ensure that the area retains its garden setting. The ten councillors present, nine Conservatives and one Labour, unanimously supported it.

Coun Swinburn said: “I am delighted that the new administration at Cramlington Town Council has voted to support the permanent protection of this area. This is a historic and tranquil setting for a war memorial and needs to be kept that way. This vote was a positive step, sending a clear message that this area should and will be protected from inappropriate changes.” Coun De Simone added: “Residents from across Cramlington and local businesses were quite clear that this area should be maintained as it is. It is important that local views are respected and that this area was not appropriate for drinking festivals.”

Work is completed to improve homes in Blyth
David Sedgwick 22 July 2017


Tolent Construction present a cheque of £500 for residents' community fund following work to improve homes in Alwinton Court, Blyth.

Residents have celebrated the completion of works to improve their homes.

Tolent Construction, based in Gateshead, started work on behalf of Bernicia to 38 flats making up a residential and sheltered housing scheme in Alwinton Court, Blyth. Work involved installing new kitchens and wet rooms as well as decoration.

To mark the completion of the work, Tolent staff presented the residents with a cheque for £500 to put towards their community fund.

Ian Thompson, project manager for Tolent, said: “The residents of Alwinton Court have been really patient throughut the disruption to their homes and have made it a pleasure to work here. “They have really looked after the workers during our time here and we wanted to give them a little thank-you.” The money was raised by the contractors Kevin Dixon Building, K Hewitt & Co, Malones Group, MSB Flooring and Tolent.

Olive Seddon, treasurer and secretary of the residents association, said “Everyone is really pleased with the work that has been carried out. It has been a bit of an upheaval for some people but the workers have been great and we are really grateful to them all for the donation.”

Request for offers on former police station with development potential in Blyth
Published on: 9th August 2017

A Grade II Listed building, located in Blyth, Northumberland has gone on the market with offers invited no later than 12 noon on Thursday 12th October 2017.

Blyth is a bustling port town on the coast in Northumberland, roughly 12 miles Northeast of Newcastle.

The large, imposing building was previously used as the town’s main police station and split across four floors and various out buildings has a combined internal area of 34,337 sq ft.

Kevin McGorie, agent on the property, said ““I am really pleased to be able to request offers for this impressive property. Its location is perfect, in the centre of the increasingly popular North East town of Blyth. The property’s development potential will make this an incredibly popular property and I expect there to be a significant level of interest from landlords, developers, investors and others.”

The property may be suitable for a range of uses, subject to relevant planning permissions and we would recommend that all interested parties speak to Northumberland County Council Planning Department.

Station facelift work on track

From today's News Post Leader @ http://www.newspostleader.co.uk/news...rack-1-8695879
Station facelift work on track
Janet Hall 11 August 2017


Cramlington Railway Station

Work is getting under way on a major modernisation programme for the region’s railway stations.

Cramlington is one of five Northern stations being equipped with better facilities for customers. New waiting shelters, seating, improved PA, a help point, upgraded CCTV, a ticket vending machine and improved signage are all planned.

The work is part of Northern’s Better Stations scheme, with a further 58 stations in the region earmarked for modernisation during the next two-and-a-half years.

Regional director Mike Paterson said: “This will be a three-year process which will see the majority of our stations given a new lease of life – with improved facilities to compliment the other work we are doing to modernise the Northern network. These are early days for the Better Stations project, but during the coming weeks and months our customers will begin to see changes right across the network. Our new facilities, designed specifically for Northern, will create a more modern and welcoming feel as we begin the process of developing Northern as a network fit for the 21st century.”

Better Stations is a key part of Northern’s commitment to modernising its network. It has has already started to roll out refurbished trains and the remainder of the fleet will go through this process during the next 18 months. Northern is also committed to bringing 98 new, purpose-built trains to the network by 2020, as well as removing all Pacers within the same timescale.

Bringing back Blyth Carnival

Bringing back Blyth Carnival
Ben O'Connell 16 August 2017


One of the Blyth Community Carnival Club workshops.

Headway Arts is working with the town council to bring back the Blyth Community Carnival this summer.

Headway Arts aims to involve local people and community groups in bringing back the Blyth Carnival, drawing inspiration from the old-time carnivals, circus, international and vintage entertainments from Blyth's unique history.

At noon on Saturday, August 26, there will be a Community Carnival Parade leaving Headway ArtSpace on Waterloo Road to Blyth Market Place where there will be street performances until 5pm.

Headway Arts has programmed quality acts from regional artists, including family favourites, Bell and Bullock Circus Theatre, international music from Soznac, escapologist Chris Cross, Timestep Dance, while local guitar hero Anth Purdy, fresh from wowing the crowds in London, will be playing his swing guitar. To dance out the afternoon, there will be a Lindy Hop swing=dance flashmob open to all who'd like to join in. Talented local buskers will also be the bill. Also look out for the up-close street magic and pop-up performances around the town centre.

Creative director, Allie Walton-Robson, said: "Our cultural programme and fringe festival were amazingly popular during the Tall Ships Regatta when Blyth showed the world what's great about it. Following that is a tough one, this a community-led event so we need the people of Blyth to get behind us to help to make it happen. Thanks to the support of Blyth Town Council, we've been able to offer free family workshops over the summer holidays and a great programme on the day. Our carnival club have taken inspiration from wonderful vintage entertainments, including Stan Laurel, The Old Theatre Royal with funny circus acts, such as a troupe of monkeys, clever ponies and the famous Roxy Ballroom."
