Yeah, I bet it will be the same comments as those were made for Scaffold Hill. "It will take away my view", "I walk my dog there", "When I bought this house I was under the impression nothing would be built there", "It's green so therefor it's greenbelt land".

The information given i saw seemed to indicate a road down the side of the blue flames. I will see if i can find the document, not sure if that would be for the planning application you talk about or as my neighbor thought the land at the top of the DWP.

As for No Frills shocked another garden centre has not taken it as it always looked busy upon driving past.

Check this site out which is in favour of the development at Billy Pit

Public Respond Favourably To Blue Flames Development

Benton residents responded well to plans for a new road and housing development at a public exhibition held at Blue Flames Sporting Club last night.

Members of the public were invited to attend the exhibition by Muse Developments, the regeneration specialist that will be submitting a planning application to develop the land formerly known as Billy Pit Colliery in the coming weeks.

Neighbours to the site attended the meeting where they posed questions to the developer and it’s professional team to find out more about the application which proposes to build a new access road leading south from the entrance to Blue Flames on Whitley Road, to the land that was once Billy Pit colliery on which a new low density, sustainable housing scheme will be built subject to approval of planning in summer.

Muse and Blue Flames hosted the public exhibition in order to ascertain the views of people who would be directly affected by the proposed development, namely members of Blue Flames Sporting Club and immediate neighbours of the would-be development site ahead of the application’s submission, which is scheduled for next month.

Attendees had the opportunity to speak with the sports club, the developer, and the developer’s specialist advisors including their planning consultant, architect, and highways consultant, Chris Jolley of Mott MacDonald.

Aldi on Great Lime Road opened this morning - I went up about 90 mins after opening time to get dinner after my night shift, and it was already heaving!

All in all its a tidy development and will be an asset to the local area, although I was less than impressed to pass some people on my way up who had "borrowed" a shopping cart.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who will be less than impressed if we start seeing carts dumped all over the local area. It's very surprising they haven't installed systems to stop them being removed from the premises given the cost of the things.

This small piece in the Chronicle of 19th July 2013, copyright NCJMedia Ltd had me do a double take. I mean, how did they come up with that head line - "city shoppers", I would have thought the attraction would be for local residents, hardly 'city' status.

Fresh plan for new housing development in Palmersville

From today's Chronicle Live, copyright NCJMedia Ltd @ http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/...mitted-5744004

Fresh plan for new housing development in Palmersville


By Sonia Sharma - 17th August 2013


Banks Property project manager Stuart Morgan at the proposed housing site



A housing firm is making a second attempt to build a new residential development in Tyneside after its previous plans were turned down.

Earlier this year Banks Property, part of the Banks Group, put forward plans for 61 homes on a 4.5-acre site off Great Lime Road in Palmersville, adjacent to the existing Forest Gate estate.

The scheme was rejected by a North Tyneside Council planning committee in March on the grounds there could be gas migration from a former landfill site in the area, and would result in the loss of greenfield space. The panel also felt construction traffic would have an impact on highway safety, and noise would adversely affect residents at Forest Gate.

The project had been recommended for approval by planning officers who said that, subject to conditions, the site would be suitable for residential use, despite the proximity of the former landfill site.

However, the committee voted against the proposal 17 to 1.

Now the Banks Group has resubmitted the plans. The company says the council has withdrawn three of the four refusal reasons. And the final objection, relating to ecology matters, is being addressed.

Managing director Michael Shuttleworth said: “We were obviously disappointed to have the proposals turned down by the committee, especially after planning officers had recommended them for approval, and firmly believe that the additional ecological survey work we’ve now made fully address the concerns that were raised earlier this year.

“Over £140,000 would be made available through this project for investment in school, play spaces, sports facilities and wildlife habitats. It would also lead to revenue benefits for shops and services.”

A council spokesman said the scheme was due to be considered by a planning committee, therefore it was inappropriate to make any comment at this stage.

Controversial home plans for North Tyneside given the go ahead

Controversial home plans for North Tyneside given the go ahead

By Kerry Wood - 9th September 2013



Hundreds of executive homes can be built on previously ‘safeguarded’ land after a lapse in council planning.

In the latest instalment of the debacle centring on the major housing scheme in North Tyneside, Communities Secretary Eric Pickles has granted planning permission for 366 homes on land at Whitehouse Farm, West Moor, after an appeal by developers Bellway.

The move comes as a blow to the 1,000-plus protesters who’d previously been victorious in saving the vast green space from development having seen the authority’s planning committee go against the recommendation of officers and refuse the controversial application. Along with concerns about the impact on biodiversity of wildlife, the committee said “the proposal would result in the loss of designated Safeguarded Land” as set out in the council’s Unitary Development Plan 2002.

Appealed by developers Bellway, the decision went to a public inquiry last October with the planning inspector recommending the appeal be upheld despite the vocal opposition and protests of local residents.

Minded to agree with the inspector, Mr Pickles received further comments from Bellway, West Moor Residents’ Association and North Tyneside Council over the summer before his latest decision announcing he allows Bellway’s appeal and “grants planning permission for an executive scheme of 366 dwellings incorporating landscaping, wildlife corridors, open space, access and highways.”

Although deemed as safeguarded land locally, Mr Pickles previously said the fact “the council’s unitary development plan was six years beyond its end date,..can all be seen as arguments in favour of allowing development now on safeguarded land.”

The decision raises concerns for other authorities in the region hoping to protect green space, fenced as ‘safeguarded’ land in out-of-date plans, from development.

First look at new North Tyneside primary school

From today's Chronicle Live, copyright NCJMexdia Ltd @ http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/...neside-6020333

First look at new North Tyneside primary school
By Kerry Wood - 14th September 2013


Designer's impression of how the new school will look

This is the first look at an ambitious £6.5m dual-belief school in the heart of a community.

It’s been three years coming but with the advent of the new school year comes the much-anticipated building work on the vast site off Goathland Avenue, Benton, in North Tyneside.

It was in 2011 pupils of the now Benton Dene Primary School watched as their old classrooms, at Goathland Primary, were bulldozed.

With the site vacant St Bartholomew’s Church of England Primary, off nearby Front Street, and St Stephen’s Catholic School, based in Longbenton, teamed up with a plan to merge their buildings into one.

Boards surrounding the site have now gone up as building group Kier start work on the foundations of the new school due to open next September.

Richard Restall, head teacher at St Bartholomew’s made a site visit, and said: “The plans have changed slightly from the first plans for the school but it is going really well.

“We are having to look at the internal space how it can be used as well as the aesthetics of the building.

“While the work is going on behind the boards what we are doing has a big community impact and we are keen to do the best we can for the pupils and the community.”

Ward councillor Eddie Darke, chairman of St Stephen’s, said: “Hopefully this time next year there will be kids in the new school which has football pitches and running tracks in the field outside.”

Known as the Longbenton Voluntary Aided Schools campus, the school was given the go-ahead earlier this year after funding delays.

This is the Planning Application on the North Tyneside Portal:

12/01439/LAREG3 | The redevelopment of the former Goathland Primary School site in Longbenton, to provide new primary school with associated landscaping, access and sports facilities including single storey community pavilion for St Bartholomews Church of England Primary School and St Stephens Roman Catholic Primary School, which will both relocate from their existing premises within North Tyneside as part of a three phase development plan to improve the Longbenton Pyramid of Schools | Site Of Former Goathland Primary School Goathland Avenue Longbenton NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE

Norgas House - Killingworth

Norgas House is to be flattened and replaced with family homes


IT was built at the height of the swinging sixties – but since then its innovative design has fallen out of fashion. Now this vandal-hit building, which was designed by top Tyneside architects, is to be demolished. Norgas House, built in 1965, has been empty for more than five years and has suffered from criminal damage. The structure, created by Ryder and Yates, has been dubbed an eyesore.

The block in Northumbrian Way, Killingworth, was used as the HQ for the Northern Gas Board and its successor National Grid until it was sold to Prospect Ventures Ltd in early 2010. Now Prospect Ventures wants to knock it down and replace it with 117 homes. The scheme was approved by North Tyneside Council planning committee.

Mark Brooker, senior planner for Storeys Edward Symmons, the Tyneside-based agents for Prospect Ventures, said: “The building is in a dreadful condition. It has suffered vandalism and looks grim.

From North Tyneside Councillor, Jim Allan

Dear Friends, I would like to seek out your views on the suggestions for the names of the three streets currently being built on the former
Norgas House site, in Killingworth.

It has been suggested that they be named as follows :
1 to 12 Southgate (existing street name)
1 to 29 Northumbrian Way, excluding 13 (existing street name)
1 to 109 (odds) and 2 to 54 (evens) Lakeland Court, excluding 13 (new street name).

I have, as Ward Councillor, challenged the name Lakeland Court and suggested it should be related to the Norgas House name - so for example Norgas Court, Norgas Close.

The reason for suggesting this is the Fact that Norgas House was part of the original Killingworth New Town and was a well known building, both locally and internationally.

I would like you to let me know what you think, and if you have any other suggestions, but my view is that we need to hang on to recent history as much as we can, for future generations.

I look forward to hearing from you

Councillor Jim Allan
.

Any thoughts anyone?

I understand the reason for a link to the old site name but I don't think it needs to be as obvious as using Norgas in the name. Perhaps Gas House Lane? Or perhaps refer to something prior to Norgas House?

Would be good to think that a historical link could be established with at least one street/road carrying the Norgas Name.

I can see your point... although from a prospective developers view it might be a hard sell convincing them a tenant would prefer to live in "norgas close" as opposed to "lakeland drive/court"
