Hi,

I've tried searching, but I can't seem to find any recent information about the planned Aldi development on West Farm Avenue in Longbenton. Is it still going ahead?

I contacted them about it recently. They replied "At present we do not have a proposed opening date for this store."

Work is almost complete now at the new Lidl in Killingworth. Here is my latest aerial update video from a couple of days ago.

Does anyone have an opening date?

Originally the aim was to open in Spring 2017 but delays occasioned by the discovery and infilling of a former pit shaft delayed that.

According to the Chronicle article @ http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=337 the planned opening is this month.

Keep the drone footage coming, fascinating views.

Demolition of damaged homes on West Allotment Bayfield estate set to cost at least £95,000

Ten more homes WILL be demolished on West Allotment Bayfield estate due to subsidence
Sonia Sharma 15 May 2017

The Coal Authority has been given the go-ahead to knock down 10 more houses on an estate where subsidence was found more than a year ago.

Last month, the group submitted another application to knock down a further 10 homes in the area and permission for this has now been granted by the council. However, at this stage, it is not known exactly when demolition work will start. The Coal Authority says discussions are taking place with the owners concerned, who are being offered market value of their properties, and work would only start once agreements have been reached with the residents affected.

Tim Marples, head of public safety and subsidence, said: “Permission for demolition was granted and we have been liaising closely with the residents concerned. They will receive the market value of their properties as assessed by independent valuations based on the original undamaged condition. We are currently unable to confirm when the demolition works will start because once agreements have been reached with the owners, service disconnections then have to be completed before the works can begin.”

The organisation says it cannot comment on individual cases for confidentiality reasons. However, if the authority and any owners are unable to reach an agreement, then procedures for “independent arbitration” can be put in place. Meanwhile, regular monitoring is taking place across the Bayfield site, which shows that the area of the subsidence zone has not increased.

Demolition of damaged homes on West Allotment Bayfield estate set to cost at least £95,000
Sonia Sharma 2 August 2017


Bayfield estate in West Allotment where houses are to be demolished due to building subsidence (Image: Newcastle Chronicle)

Work to demolish homes that were damaged by subsidence on a Tyneside estate will cost the taxpayer at least £95,000, it has been revealed.

The 15 properties at Bayfield, in West Allotment, are being knocked down by the Coal Authority. They were found to have subsidence last year and major investigations were carried out at the scene to find out the cause of the ground movement. The authority concluded it was likely to be the result of historical coal mining in the area and procedures were put in place to deal with the damaged homes.

So far, permission has been granted for the demolition of 15 properties. Four of them have already been flattened and five more are due to be knocked down this month. Work is planned to start on August 14 and is expected to take two weeks. After that, five further houses are to be demolished in September.

At this stage, the authority has not given formal notice of any further demolitions. If it is decided that more houses need to go, then the costs to the taxpayer will rise. A spokesman said: “We are preparing for the next phase of demolition, including carrying out service disconnections to allow the demolition works to take place. We are also continuing ground and property monitoring on a regular basis, which is being carried out by specialist companies. Works are on-going at the moment but we can confirm that the costs of, and associated with, these demolition works, are expected to be around £95,000.”

A new Lidl store will open its doors to the public in Killingworth next week - with a raft of special offers to celebrate the occasion.

The discount store, on the Stephenson Industrial Estate, off Southgate, North Tyneside, has created around 40 jobs.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 8am on Thursday, August 17 before customers are offered a chance to sample some of the supermarket’s products throughout the day.

The store includes an in-store bakery, long tills with dual packing, customer toilets, baby changing and parking for cars and bicycles.

David Murphy, Lidl UK’s regional head of property, said: “We would like to thank all those who have played a part in bringing this new Lidl store to Killingworth. It is great for us to be able to create more jobs and investment opportunities in the area, and we can’t wait to start serving our multi-award winning products to the local community.”

Passed the new Lidl at Killingworth this afternoon and (after what seems like a lifetime) it's now open!

Much Furore! Crazy busy with folk queuing simply for a carparking space, so heck knows how packed it was inside? I assume they were giving things away - otherwise I fear for humanity.

Anyway, I went to Aldi

Heres my aerial video from the opening day for Lidl in Killingworth. I filmed this at about 8.30am, so it was pretty quiet but I did notice later on in the day that the carpark was jam packed. I had a little nosy inside aswell and I was impressed with what I saw.

The site location plan shows the part they are taking at the western end, hence why Matalan relocated their car park entrance.

Second venue for Jesmond's Jam Jar bar and restaurant entrepreneur
Coreena Ford 17 August 2017


The new Coach Inn in Killingworth take over by Anthony Martin (Image: newcastle chronicle)

The young entrepreneur behind Newcastle’s Jam Jar bar and restaurant has expanded his portfolio by taking on a second venue.

Anthony Martin took ownership of Jam Jar at the end of last year, taking on the lease and pledging to ring in changes at the popular Jesmond venue after the former owners moved from the area. Now the 26-year-old, the former head chef at Quayside restaurant The Silk Rooms, plans to breathe new life into the New Coach Inn in Killingworth, North Tyneside, transforming it into a destination bar and restaurant and community hub.

Significant investment is set to be ploughed into the pub, where Mr Martin is working with the team to bring in a new menu and new features to put the Killingworth Road venue on the map.

Mr Martin, director at the New Coach Inn, said: “We feel that the pub has got a lot of potential but until now it has only really served the community as a place for drinkers. My background is very much in hospitality and I’ve worked in bars and restaurants ever since I was a teenager, growing up in Northumberland in the Bamburgh area. I was head chef at my brother’s restaurant The Silk Rooms for five years so I’ve crafted my trade in kitchens for years. The New Coach Inn is a real rustic, traditional pub with bags of opportunity, in a built up area full of families. It doesn’t need much doing inside or out, and it’s a huge site with a large beer garden – but what it’s missing is a bit of direction and a good food menu.

Mr Martin, who also runs Northumberland Street’s tattoo removal clinic LaserWays alongside Jam Jar and New Coach Inn, also aims to expand the business. He said: “We’re looking at the potential to add accommodation here at the moment. After that, I just want to fully focus on the businesses. Jam Jar has gone from strength to strength in the last year so I’m sure the New Coach Inn will as well.”

New Holystone retail park with Aldi and drive-thru Costa could create up to 180 jobs
Sonia Sharma 4 July 2017


Artist's impression of how the Holystone retail park development will look (Photo: Northumberland Estates)

More than 180 jobs could be coming to North Tyneside under plans to develop a new retail hub near the A19 Holystone roundabout.

Northumberland Estates have put together a scheme to develop land to the west of the Toby Carvery restaurant, just off the A186. The first phase of the proposed scheme includes an Aldi store and a drive-thru Costa cafe as well as associated car parking spaces. Details of the second phase are not available at this stage, however it is estimated that the whole project could create around 180 jobs with roles up for grabs in management, customer service, restocking, sales and cleaning.

The new Northumberland Retail Park will sit in an area where new housing developments are already being built and it is thought the services will help to serve the growing community.

Colin Barnes, head of planning and development at Northumberland Estates, said: “The site lies in the centre of North Tyneside’s largest growth area for housing and jobs. Directly adjacent are new housing developments at Backworth Park and at the Rising Sun site. We are also pleased to see the start of a major residential scheme which welcomes both Cussins and Robertson Homes to the area next to Backworth Golf Club. To the south Cobalt Business Park with around two million sq ft of office development is one of Europe’s largest business parks. The developments are a great sign of confidence in North Tyneside with good prospects for further jobs and investment in the coming years. Northumberland Retail Park is ideally located and highly accessible being on a major transport interchange with buses, trains, the Metro and with excellent road links. It will provide much-needed new services to the area as well as creating jobs.”

The future of a new Aldi and drive-thru Costa near Holystone roundabout will be known very soon
By Sonia Sharma 22 August 2017



Plans to build a new Aldi and drive-thru Costa cafe near a busy Tyneside junction could be given the go-ahead next week.

The scheme, drawn up by Northumberland Estates, involves constructing the retail hub next to the A19 Holystone roundabout in North Tyneside. The plot of land to be developed lies to the west of the Toby Carvery restaurant, just off the A186. Documents show that the foodstore is to measure around 60m by 36.8m while the restaurant will be 16.6m by 12.5m.

The multi-million pound project has already received outline planning permission but North Tyneside Council is set to discuss a more detailed scheme on August 29. Planning officers are recommending approval - they say the layout, scale, appearance and landscaping of the proposal is acceptable.

The Aldi and Costa are part of the first phase of a programme to develop the new Northumberland Retail Park. Details of the second phase have not been revealed at this stage, however it is estimated the whole project could create around 180 jobs. Meanwhile, hundreds of houses and a new school are being built in the vicinity by a number of different firms. Among the new housing sites are The Brierdene, Backworth Park and Heritage Green. The new retail hub aims to serve this growing community.

Benton's new trampoline park is sure to put a spring in your step when it opens this Bank Holiday

Latest Newcastle trampoline park plans revealed
Matthew Ord 30 March 2017



A North East leisure company has revealed plans to transform a vacant Newcastle unit into a trampoline park in a move which could create 45 jobs.

The Jump 360 brand is part of the Fun Shack group, owned by brothers Craig and Stuart Freeman alongside their partners Andrea and Georgette, and currently employs a workforce of more than 140 across the region. It is set to open its latest, 30,000 sq ft site in at Benton Business Park in July 2017.

The £1.3m investment will comprise a host of activities including foam pits, airbags, dodgeball courts, slam dunk basketball lanes and two-metre jump platforms. It will also boast a range of new attractions including a giant ninja assault course, bucking bronco bull ride and Aeroball courts. The expansion follows the success of similar parks in Stockton and Hartlepool, with the Newcastle venture being "unanimously backed" by the licensing committee as it will rejuvenate a building which has previously been victim to vandalism.

Stuart Freeman, director of The Fun Shack Group, said he was "very excited" by the upcoming launch. This is the third of seven new parks planned for the North East over the next two years, including another unique venue right here in Newcastle, and I am proud to be able to continue to contribute to creating a vibrant and thriving region for people to live and work," he added.

Fellow director Craig Freeman said: "We recognise the importance of benefitting and helping the communities that we are part of. Our business would not exist without them so we support local charities, causes and organisations whenever possible."

Late last year, Insider revealed that The Fun Shack Group had also submitted plans for a £3m trampoline and children’s play centre at Benfield Industrial Estate in Newcastle.

With its network of trampolines and a special ninja assault course, this new attraction is all set to get kids jumping when it opens its doors on Bank Holiday Monday.

The Jump 360 site, at Bellway Industrial Estate, off Whitley Road, in Benton , has been fitted out. And we were given a sneak peek inside the facility as final preparations were being made for the big opening.

The 30,000 sq ft-site has foam pits, airbags, dodgeball courts, slam dunk basketball lanes, 20ft tumble tracks and 2m jump platforms. It also boasts a ninja assault course, described as “the first of its kind in the North East”, which allows contenders to race against the clock over various obstacles to the finish line. The course has more than 20 challenges including cargo nets, drop slides, glide tracks, and motorized turntables.

In addition, operators have installed a bucking bronco bull ride, Cardio Wall games, Aeroball courts and a motorised rotating battle beam. The battle beam rotates at ground level, like a revolving dancefloor, as well as swivelling on its cylinder to make it even trickier to stay on board. As well as these activities, the park will offer a range of fitness classes, general bounce sessions as well as sessions for teenagers, toddlers and families. Jump Support, activities for people with special needs, will also be available.

Stuart Freeman, director, said: “We are very excited to launch our first park in the Newcastle area and bring all the fun and excitement of Jump 360 to families during the last week of the summer break. The end of the school holidays can make everyone a little blue but we have developed some fantastic new additions to the Jump 360 experience which is sure to put a bounce in your step.”

An Aldi and Costa drive-thru WILL open near Holystone roundabout - and work could begin soon
Hannah Graham 29 August 2017



Construction can now begin on a new Aldi and a drive-thru Costa for North Tyneside.

A scheme approved on Tuesday by North Tyneside council will see a retail hub built next to the A19 Holystone roundabout. The land which was given the green light for development lies near the Toby Carvery restaurant, just off the A168.

After outline planning permission was granted last year for a shop and cafe on the site, planners have now given more detailed plans the go-ahead. he Costa will lie near the entrance to the site, while the Aldi will sit to the west. Developers say they hope to start building work this year. There is room left in the rest of the site, which is owned by Northumberland Estates, for further shops to join these outlets in phase two of the Holystone Retail Park scheme.

Although full details of this second phase have not yet been revealed, it is estimated the whole multi-million pound project could create around 186 jobs. It is set to include a petrol station, and initial plans suggest there will be space for around four large new shops on the ground floor, with more space on an upper mezzanine level.

In order to satisfy planners’ conditions, the developers will have to contribute £187,104 to improvements at Holystone Interchange, along with more cash to create “sustainable links and to and from the site”.

Looks like the new petrol station is going to be significantly larger. I wonder if they will be trying to give it a multipurpose use of being a local store for our of hours service like evenings and weekends.
