£5m Hebburn industrial development gets green light

£5m Hebburn industrial development gets green light
Jamie Hardesty 19 July 2017



100 new industrial jobs could be created at Hebburn’s Monkton Business Park within the next year, after plans for a £5m industrial project were given the go ahead this week.

Leading the project to build three large industrial units at the site, Washington-based Hellens Group will begin work on the site this September with completion expected to take 12 months. The development will create around 55,000 square feet of new industrial space, comprising of one large unit of 30,000 square feet and two smaller units of 15,000 and 10,000 square feet. However an option does exist for prospective businesses to combine the two smaller units into a 35,000 square foot facility. Once fully let, the new units will have the capacity to house over 100 jobs.

Hellens Group has been backed with £1.27m from the North East Local Enterprise Partnership’s Local Growth Fund, which aims to help infrastructure projects in the region, to complete the build alongside a £1.7m loan from the North East Investment Fund (NEIF), also administered by the LEP.

Gavin Cordwell-Smith, chief executive at Hellens Group, said: “The development is fantastic news for South Tyneside and the wider region. These new units will offer growing businesses modern manufacturing space with 6-8m eaves height, and good power availability. We will work with prospective tenants to develop the internal layout of the units and offer cost-competitive rates on long term leases. We are tremendously appreciative of the support for the project that we’ve had from both South Tyneside Council and the North East LEP.”

Leader of South Tyneside Council, Councillor Iain Malcolm, added: “This is excellent news for South Tyneside, with regional funds from the LEP being used in a targeted way to grow the borough’s business prospects. I’m delighted that funding from LEP’s North East Investment Fund and the Local Growth Fund will enable construction of these much-needed units to get underway this year.”

EXTRACT



A proposal to convert an historic seafront pub into an hotel have been rocked by planners worried about wildlife. They say bosses at the Marsden Grotto have failed to consider the £500,000 project’s possible ecological impact on sites and are to recommend councillors turn down the application.

Owner Terry Maughan – who is seeking to make only internal renovations - condemned the decision as bureaucracy gone mad and fears his plan to add 10 bedrooms to the first floor will suffer serious delays and incur unnecessary expense. Mr Maughan, 50, said:

“This is a ridiculous decision. The council are just throwing hurdles in the way.

“No one had ever mentioned a need for all these surveys until now. Some of the sites they are worried about are far from the Grotto and the works I have planned could have no possible impact on them.

“I understand that the area around the Grotto is of ecological importance, but I’m only making small internal changes.”

South Shields improvement team has a tough task in restoring ‘strangled’ town’s former glory, say readers

South Shields improvement team has a tough task in restoring ‘strangled’ town’s former glory, say readers
Sophie Brownson 3 August 2017



People in South Tyneside say a scheme which is hoping to give a boost to the town has a major task on its hands.

The newly formed South Shields Coastal Community Team aims to promote the area to increase the number of visitors to South Tyneside. Last month the organisation held a public launch at the Customs House which saw around 50 people turn out with ideas to improve positivity and community spirit to South Shields.

Gary Craig, chairman of South Tyneside Business Forum and one of the team’s directors, hopes more people will come forward and get involved in generating ideas to help being positivity to the town. Such ideas include a community clean up of rubbish in the town centre as well as introducing a tourist train and acquiring a vacant building to house a social enterprise project.

Gazette readers, however, saying that such a scheme will do little to give the town the boost it needs. Commenting on our Facebook page, Benjamin Scott said: “South Shields is a shadow of its former self. “All the towns trade has been strangled by ‘penny pinching’ car park charges. “Why come to Shields when you can park free all day at Metro Centre, Silverlink and Royal Quays?”

Geoff Hadaway added: “What’s the point? Every time people give advice they are ignored.” But Tony Mal Parvia said: “The ‘problems’ facing towns and cities like Shields and Sunderland are not unique to this part of the country, nor can they blamed on one specific reason.”

Once-forgotten South Tyneside estate set for new era

New homes plan for former South Tyneside ‘war zone’
Verity Ward 4 April 2017


Empty properties in Eskdale Drive, Jarrow, awaiting demolition last year.

Scores of new homes may be created on a former South Tyneside ‘war zone’ if planners give the go ahead. South Tyneside Housing Ventures Trust aims to build 36 dwellings on land within the Lakes Estate in Jarrow.

The plot will be bounded by Eskdale Drive, Coniston Drive,Lodore Grove, Kirkstone Avenue and Grasmere Avenue. Residents who previously lived in the pre-fabricated homes, which were demolished last year, likened the area to a war zone as many of the buildings were boarded up and had fallen into a state of disrepair.

If the plans, which have been submitted to South Tyneside Council’s planning department, are approved, a mixture of one to three bedroom flats, bungalows, semi-detached and terraced properties, would be created. The planning statement reads: “The proposed development will provide a significant contribution towards the delivery of the residential regeneration of the Lakes Estate and South Tyneside Housing Ventures Limited’s vision for the area. “The proposal is considered to be of an appropriate scale and massing within the context of its surroundings. Sympathetic and appropriate high quality materials, structures and hard and soft landscaping have been incorporated into the designs.”

Former residents had been due to have their homes revamped as part of the Decent Homes Standard Programme but a survey carried out by contractors Keepmoat found the properties - which were built at the end of the Second World War and were expected to last for twenty years - were in worse condition than first anticipated. South Tyneside Council’s Cabinet agreed in 2015 year to demolish the 43 homes.

Once-forgotten South Tyneside estate set for new era
Daniel Prince 5 August 2017


The Lakes Estate is set to welcome 35 new homes after plans were approved.

A once beleaguered estate in South Tyneside is set for a new era after plans for new homes were given the green light. A proposal for 35 new homes to be built on the Lakes Estate, in Jarrow, have been approved by South Tyneside Council’s Planning Committee.

It comes a year after 43 pre-fabricated houses on Eskdale Drive, Coniston Drive and Grasmere Avenue, on the estate, were demolished.

The borough’s independent housing company, South Tyneside Housing Ventures Trust, will work with a contractor to deliver the scheme. The development will be a mix of two and three-bedroomed houses, two-bedroomed bungalows and apartments. The properties will all have off-street parking and open plan front gardens.

Brian Scott, company secretary of the Ventures Trust, said: “We’re delighted that the application has been approved. The trust was established to build affordable housing in the borough and we are well on track to achieving our vision of delivering 400 new homes in our first five years. We will be appointing a contractor imminently and hope to start on site within the next few weeks.”

Coun Allan West, lead member for housing and transport at South Tyneside Council, said: “This is very welcome news. Housing has such a major impact on people’s lives and providing quality, affordable homes for rent in the borough is one of our priorities. I’m looking forward to seeing the new development take shape.”

Watch the dramatic moment a South Shields building goes up in flames

Middle Docks, including its built in 1907 ferro-concrete office building

Good information on http://twsitelines.info/SMR/2345, including

A ‘Mr Smith’s Dock’ is shown on a ‘Plan of the Low part of the Tyne’ in the late 1760s. The first mention by name of Middle Dock is from 1772, when the brig True Briton was announced for sale at ‘the Middle Dock, South Shields’. In 1774, the yard was described as containing a ‘large and commodious double dock, a spacious building yard, smiths’ shops, warehouses and all other necessary conveniences and appurtenances…’. References to ‘docks’ on the site by 1799 show it had at least two in place by that time. Wood’s map of South Shield’s of 1827 shows two owners in the Middle Dock Yard; a Mr Stoveld in the northern dock and a Mr Hall in the southern dock. In the mid-19th century the two docks were joined into one business under Hood, Henderson and Woods: the Middle Dock Co. In 1899 the Middle Dock Co. was sold and a new Middle Dock and Engineering Co. Ltd was formed. The prinicipal work of the yard was ship repairing. A third graving dock at Middle Dock was opened in 1909 and all the yard’s departments were reorganised and extended and new electric cranes installed. A fourth graving-dock was constructed between 1914 and 1917. Construction of this dock, which ran obliquely across the enlarged yard, involved the infilling of the old Metcalfe’s Dock and the demolition of much of the yard’s structures. At the time, it was the second largest graving dock on the east coast north of the Thames. After WW1, the two oldest docks in the yard were also extended and the yard considerably upgraded. The yard was employed to full capacity over WWII and the latest dock was extended in 1941 to 640 feet in length. From 1977 the Middle Dock and Engineering Company became a member of British Shipbuilders as part of the Tyne Shiprepairers Group Ltd. In 2003 many brick warehouses survived, along with a fine example of a ferro-concrete office block built in 1907. Four docks survived, crane tracks, mooring posts and steam winches. LOCAL LIST

Watch the dramatic moment a South Shields building goes up in flames
Petra Silfverskiold 6 August 2017


The fire in Hill Street, South Shields.

This is the moment a derelict South Shields building dramatically went up in flames. Smoke and flames could be seen for miles billowing from the disused building on Hill Street early yesterday evening.

The blaze was first reported at 6.47pm and 16 different 999 calls were made about the incident in Hill Street. At its peak, four fire appliances and an aerial ladder platform were on the scene with crews from South Shields, Wallsend, Tynemouth and Marley Park in Sunderland. At 9.41pm, Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service tweeted that the fire had been brought under control and said the incident had been scaled down to two pumps and an aerial ladder platform. The service also confirmed that there were no persons involved.

A Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service spokesman told the Gazette as the fire took hold: "We believe it was an old office block on Hill Street." She described it as a "derelict property on fire. Four fire engines and one of our aerial ladder platforms were sent and a duty officer." She said the crews came from South Shields, Wallsend, Tynemouth and the aerial platform was from the Marley Park station.

Talks underway after offers made on sites in South Shields

From today's Shields Gazette @ http://www.shieldsgazette.com/news/t...elds-1-8697025
Talks underway after offers made on sites in South Shields
Lisa Nightingale 11 August 2017


Land for sale at Towers Place off Newcastle Road

Talks have began over the sale of land once occupied by a former retail warehouse on a South Tyneside industrial estate. Council chiefs have revealed an offer has been made for the three acre site in Towers Place, Simonside - which once housed a Co-Op warehouse.

The site is one of two in the borough which are currently subject to offers by seperate companies, as the council look to sell off the land. As yet, the council were unable to confirm whether the land at Towers Place will remain for industrial use or whether it will be sold for housing development.

The second site is in Farding Square, Marsden, where former blocks of flats were demolished to make way for new modern housing. That site was marketed by land agents GVA which asked for informal sealed tenders for the land by no later than April. The area, which covers 1.51 hectares, was described as providing developers with an opportunity to “deliver an attractive, high quality residential scheme” within a strong market area and “highly sought after coastal location.” Six low rise blocks, which had been built in the 1950s, were demolished at the end of 2015 to clear the way for the development with residents relocated to other properties. It is thought the 72 two and three-bedroom flats would have needed about £7m spending on them to bring them up to modern standards.

A spokesman for South Tyneside Council said: “We have received offers on both sites and we are working through the finer details of both with the respective interested parties.”

Speaking at the time of the land at Farding Square being marketed, Coun Ed Malcolm, lead member for innovation and resources at South Tyneside Council, said: “This is a major milestone in the redevelopment of Farding Square, moving on from the demolition of outdated flats. We are now looking forward to seeing the development of attractive, modern housing which will further enhance an already superb location and coastal community.”

800 drivers face fines after falling foul of new traffic camera

From the Shields Gazette @ http://www.shieldsgazette.com/news/8...mera-1-8698586
800 drivers face fines after falling foul of new traffic camera
Lisa Nightingale 12 August 2017


Signs on the Scotch Estate

Council chiefs have the potential of raking in a whopping £48,000 in fines after 800 motorists fell foul of a new traffic camera on a South Tyneside road.

That is the number of drivers who - in just three weeks - ignored signs not to leave the Scotch Estate in South Shields by using the Edinburgh Road junction with Newcastle Road and were caught on camera. The move to make the exit bus only, comes as part of a multi-million pound road traffic scheme to improve the A194 at Lindisfarne Roundabout. Council chiefs say they are currently processing the paperwork no fines - £60 each - have yet been issued but the number of drivers involved has stunned local councillor Lee Hughes.

The Independent Putting People First councillor said: “This is an absolute disgrace. Right from the start of these roadworks I have let my views be known about the failures I have seen in the scheme. “A lot people used that junction to exit the estate including lorry drivers and those visiting the area. There is not enough clear signage warning drivers about the bus lane. He added: I am constantly getting messages from people worried because they have driven through, realised and reversed back up - surely this is going to cause more accidents. I’d also like to know what all this money is going to be spent on.”

One senior Labour councillor said: “This is just another way motorists in South Tyneside are being penalised. This borough has a road system which is not motorist friendly. We have traffic lights on roundabouts that cause more tailbacks than remedy problems. And now this.”

A spokeswoman for South Tyneside Council confirmed 800 drivers had been caught on camera. She said: “Our absolute priority is road safety. The Edinburgh Road exit has been closed to vehicles except buses to enhance safety. There is a history of accidents at this location and motorists are jeopardising their safety by not observing the restrictions. The restriction also ensures a smoother flow of traffic on the A194. The introduction of the bus gate has been widely publicised in local media, it is signed in accordance with the Traffic Sign Regulations and General Directions 2016 and additional temporary signs were installed for the first two weeks of the new system to further aid motorists. Ideally, we would not have to issue any fines, however exiting via Edinburgh Road is both illegal and unsafe and we would encourage motorists to observe the restrictions to avoid receiving a penalty.”

Over 55s to benefit from new development

Over 55s to benefit from new development
14 August 2017


Cllr Malcolm at the site of the new development

Construction of new homes for older people is underway in South Shields.

Two bungalows and two apartments are being built on the disused site of a former children's home in Edhill Avenue, in the Simonside area of the town.South Tyneside Homes' Property Services is carrying out the build, which is scheduled for completion next Spring The two-bedroomed properties will be available to the over 55s for affordable rent through South Tyneside Housing Ventures Trust.

Councillor Ed Malcolm, ward councillor for Simonside and Rekendyke and Chair of South Tyneside Homes, said: "This development is going to provide quality, affordable accommodation for older people in the area. The site has been derelict for some time so it's great for it to be brought back into use, helping to meet local housing need. It is the first in a series of schemes that will be built by South Tyneside Homes' Property Services and I am looking forward to seeing the end result."

The project received £80,000 in grant funding from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

Brian Scott, Company Secretary of South Tyneside Housing Ventures Trust, said: "The Borough's population is ageing and developments such as this help provide the kind of accommodation those older people want and need and that will promote independent living. It is a huge challenge to build the affordable homes we need and the establishment of the Ventures Trust has been a great leap forward in meeting that demand."

With fencing in place it is now not possible to walk past the building right by the river - have to walk along Long Row

Food festival to welcome bank holiday crowd as it makes debut at seafront park
Fiona Thompson 16 August 2017



A festival is set to welcome hungry foodies as it opens its gates for the first time this bank holiday weekend. The Great North Feast takes place in Bents Park in South Shields, with the team behind the Proper Food and Drink festivals leading the celebrations.

Mark Deakin, who launched the Proper Food and Drink Festivals five years ago with wife Shelley, said: "We’ve had a great few months welcoming thousands and thousands of people to our events. Shelley added: "For the last festival of the summer we’ve decided to do something a bit bigger and a bit different. It’s a chance to celebrate and enjoy all the fantastic food and drink produced in the North East and, above all, we want people to have fun.”

At the Great North Feast, guests can visit the Get into the Spirit VIP area, which will feature drinks made in the north. Presented by Savour Magazine, guests are invited to try their favourite tipple: gin, rum, whisky, vodka, cocktails or the new Noveltea – a blend of teas and spirits. Entrance to Get into the Spirit costs £6, which includes a drink.

The team say there will be street food to suit every taste, along with bars, a producer market, live music and food challenges.

The Great North Feast has also been chosen to host the regional heats and final of the 2017 UK Chilli Cook-Off Championship. The winner is guaranteed a place in the World Chilli Championship in Alabama, where $35,000 of prize money is on offer. The top three at South Shields will win up to £150 in cash and they will all go forward to compete in the UK’s Grand Final in September. Teams will have four hours to cook from scratch a gallon of their finest chilli. It will be judged on appearance, aroma, consistency, taste and aftertaste. It costs £10 to enter a team and there is no limit on the number of team members. Mark added: "“Whether you are a student or in your 70s, everybody thinks their chilli is the best – and now it’s your time to prove it."

The Great North Feast is open from 10am to 6pm from Saturday, August 26, to Bank Holiday Monday, August 28, at Bents Park. Entry to the new event will be free.

New homes get go ahead

From the South Tyneside Council web site @ https://www.southtyneside.gov.uk/art...s-get-go-ahead

A housing development in Jarrow, South Tyneside, has been given the go ahead.

Brian Scott, Company Secretary of the Ventures Trust, said: "We're delighted that this application has been approved. We will be starting on site imminently, with the development scheduled for completion next summer. The Trust is well on track to realising its vision of delivering 400 new homes in its first five years, with 231 already delivered and a further 158 under construction or in the pipeline."

The project was awarded a grant of £400,000 from the Homes and Communities Agency.

Councillor Allan West, Lead Member for Housing and Transport on South Tyneside Council, said: "This is very welcome news. This promises to be a fantastic development and I'm looking forward to seeing construction start Housing has such an important role to play in people's lives and can have a major impact on their health and wellbeing, which is why we are committed to providing quality housing to meet local need."

Homes plan for South Shields office block
Gareth Crickmer 22 August 2017


Gordon House

A vacant former council office block is set to be demolished and 18 affordable houses built in a regeneration programme in South Tyneside. Five two-bedroom and 13 three-bedroom properties, and car parking spaces, will be created on the site of Gordon House, in Gordon Street, South Shields.

Gosforth-based Isos Housing Limited has secured £579,000 from the government’s Homes and Communities Agency to part-fund the scheme. Under its terms, homeowners rent their property at 80% of its market value, allowing them to save for a deposit and buy after five years.

The project is set to gain consent at a meeting of South Tyneside Council’s planning committee next week. That comes despite a small number of objections from nearby residents, worried about car parking, access to rear yards and other traffic issues. In its report, the council states: “The proposal is considered to be acceptable in terms of layout and design, impact on the general character of the area, amenities of the neighbours, highway safety and council objective of delivering sustainable development. The potential environmental impacts of the proposal would not be harmful. All of the proposed dwellings would be considered as being affordable housing, having regard to the buy to rent delivery model being proposed by the applicant and the Home and Communities Agency funding they have secured to help finance it. It is recommended that planning committee resolve that it is minded to grant planning permission.”

The homes will be a mix of semi-detached and short terraces of three properties, all with front gardens and at least one parking space. Isos is one of the largest housing associations in the North East, owning and managing 24,000 homes.

Further Homes Improvements on Forum Agenda

From today's South Tyneside Council web site @ https://www.southtyneside.gov.uk/art...n-Forum-Agenda
Further Homes Improvements on Forum Agenda
25 August 2017



Plans to bring more council housing up to Decent Homes Standard are set to be discussed when the East Shields and Whitburn Community Area Forum meets next week (Thursday 31 August).

Since 2008, around 17,500 homes across South Tyneside have benefited from improvements - such as new kitchens, bathrooms, heating systems and wiring as well as window and door replacements - as part of a £243m investment in the Decent Homes programme. Now South Tyneside Homes, which manages the Borough's Council housing stock, has developed a five-year programme to ensure Decent Homes standards are maintained across improved properties and that any properties that did not benefit from the project initially can still have the work carried out.

The East Shields and Whitburn Community Area Forum will hear more about how the Planned Maintenance Programme 2017-22 will benefit local residents at Thursday's meeting.

Forum Chairman, Councillor Alex Donaldson said: "While thousands of residents have benefitted from improvements to bring their properties up to Decent Homes standards, more than 1,700 households across South Tyneside declined having the work carried out at the time. The Planned Maintenance Programme gives those residents, who didn't have the improvements done, another opportunity to see their homes brought up to Decent Homes standards and South Tyneside Homes has been contacting residents on the matter. Good quality housing is an important issue for local communities and we would encourage the residents of East Shields and Whitburn to come along to our meeting to find out more about the impact of the scheme in their local area."

The Programme of work also includes paint work where necessary and replacing wood with fascias or materials that are easier to maintain where appropriate.

Members of the press and public are invited to attend the next meeting of the East Shields and Whitburn Community Area Forum, which takes place on Thursday 31 August,at6pm,atSt Gregory's Church Hall, St Gregory's Court, off Borough Road, South Shields.

Marsden Grotto, Coast Road, South Shields, Change of use from a pub/restaurant to hotel - Planning Application Granted

A proposal to convert an historic seafront pub into an hotel have been rocked by planners worried about wildlife. They say bosses at the Marsden Grotto have failed to consider the £500,000 project’s possible ecological impact on sites and are to recommend councillors turn down the application.

Owner Terry Maughan – who is seeking to make only internal renovations - condemned the decision as bureaucracy gone mad and fears his plan to add 10 bedrooms to the first floor will suffer serious delays and incur unnecessary expense. Mr Maughan, 50, said:

“This is a ridiculous decision. The council are just throwing hurdles in the way.

“No one had ever mentioned a need for all these surveys until now. Some of the sites they are worried about are far from the Grotto and the works I have planned could have no possible impact on them.

“I understand that the area around the Grotto is of ecological importance, but I’m only making small internal changes.”

Great North Feast turns South Shields park into food and drinks haven
Lisa Nightingale 27 August 2017


Great North Feast Food Festival, Bents Park, South Shields.

A seafront park was turned into a haven for food lovers and drinks connoisseurs as the Great North Feast came to South Shields. There was an array of food available to tantalise the taste buds of visitors to the Bents Park.

The event - organised by the team behind the Proper Food and Drinks festivals - was aimed showcasing the variety of food and drink produced in the North East. And while people tucked into their dishes, live singers took to the stage to entertain visitors. There was also a range of activities for youngsters including a wand and dream catcher-making workshop, hosted by Scribble and Patch.

Owner Lindsey Grieves said: “I have done work with the team who have organised the event before, so when they asked if I’d be interested in coming along to these event, I said ‘yes’. We’ve had quite a few young people come to visit us to make wands and dream catchers and other items. The event itself is really good for families, while the workshops give young people the chance to design and make something without hindering their creativity. Each person we’ve had to the workshop has created something different. It’s been great seeing what they have produced.”

The Food Festival kicked off at 10am on Saturday and will run until 6pm on Monday. Entry is free.

Support grows for new boys centre in historic St Bede’s Chambers

Plans to change listed Jarrow building into centre for boys with special needs
Verity Ward 27 April 2017

A Grade II listed building in South Tyneside may be transformed into an educational centre for male students with special needs. The site was previously used as a call centre. Prior to that it was a Co-op administration centre and has also served as a Catholic parish centre

An application has been submitted to South Tyneside Council to convert St Bede’s Chambers, in Albert Road, Jarrow, into place of learning for boys aged 11 to 16 who have social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs.

The application, which has been submitted by a private company, states: “Planning permission is sought to convert the existing building from office use into an educational centre for male pupils aged 11-16 years who have been identified as having social, emotional and mental health difficulties. It is noted that the refurbishment of St Bede’s Chambers will allow for a significant improvement in the provision for SEMH children in the local area and expand the existing provision for support to KS4 pupils.”

If given the go-ahead, secondary schools across the borough will be able to purchase part time places for those students who need more practical curriculum alongside the high degree of support which a special school can offer. The proposed layout changes will allow for the delivery of vocational courses in carpentry, brickwork and decorating, plumbing and catering. It will also include classrooms for mainstream subjects and specialist spaces for media and music.

Comments can be made on the plans until May 15, by searching for ST/0196/17/FUL at www.southtyneside.gov.uk.

Support grows for new boys centre in historic St Bede’s Chambers
28th August 2017


St Bedes Chambers, Albert Road Jarrow

Plans to establish a new centre for boys with special educational needs in South Tyneside have been backed by readers.

Council bosses are due to make a decision tomorrow on a an application to turn Grade II listed St Bede’s Chambers, in Albert Road, Jarrow, into a centre for up to 50 youngsters - aged 11 to 16. Planning officials say it should get the go-ahead but local residents - and South Tyneside Council’s deputy leader, Coun Alan Kerr have deep reservations.

They are concerned at the presence of youngsters - described as ‘vulnerable’ - and the impact of possible increased traffic and parking. The plan comes from The Harbour School Group which says students will arrive by taxi or public transport and that any off-site activity will be monitored by some of the 20 employees. The centre will have classrooms, a workshop, main hall, meeting rooms, group rooms and other facilities. Students will learn a mainstream syllabus, along with music and media, and vocational courses of brickwork, carpentry, decorating plumbing and catering. Coun Kerr said: “I think this building could be put to better use and I’ve made that clear. I’m unhappy about this proposal.”

The concerns led to a flood of comments on the Gazette Facebook page. Nigel Martin wrote: “There seems to be the problem these days with the older generation not giving these kids a chance to try and better themselves and get somewhere in life.” Andrew Marshall added: “So, Councillor Kerr, what would be your proposal to put it “to better use”? “What can possibly be better than to help local young people grow into better people and in our local community.” Mike Robe added: “This seems like a great idea. As well as providing a vital service for those families who’s children require extra help, it also puts an organisation in charge of the building who will maintain it.”

The Harbour School Group could not be contacted for comment. A final decision by South Tyneside Council’s planning committee is expected tomorrow.

Centre closing to allow for £3million transformation project

Centre closing to allow for £3million transformation project
Tom Patterson 29 August 2017


An artists impression of the revamped Jarrow hub

Plans to transform a popular community centre in South Tyneside mean it has to close for more than a year for refurbishment work.

The £3m revamp of Jarrow Hub will see the current community centre in Cambrian Street transformed into a multi-purpose leisure facility incorporating a new library. The existing gym, sports hall, dance studios and theatre space will be redesigned, along with refurbished toilets and changing facilities. A new entrance and external façade are also planned.

Jarrow Hub will be closed to the public from Sunday, September 3, to enable the improvement works to begin, and is expected to reopen late next year. The modernisation project forms part of the council’s long-term plan for community centre in the borough.

Coun Alan Kerr, deputy leader of South Tyneside Council with responsibility for culture and leisure, said: “We are delighted that work will soon start on the new Jarrow Hub. It’s a key milestone in our delivery of more sustainable leisure and community facilities for the people of South Tyneside. The project involves revitalising a valuable local asset, to broaden its appeal to the wider community and to create a vibrant social venue that will not only serve as a real focal point for local people but help to enhance the health and wellbeing of all of our residents.”

Centre users are being encouraged to make use of the borough’s five other leisure facilities – Monkton Stadium, Temple Park Centre, Hebburn Central, Haven Point and Jarrow Community Pool – for the duration of the work. The Mid-Tyne Activities Centre and Millennium PHAB Club will not be affected and will remain open.
