Ochre Yards, Bellway private housing development, Gateshead - ongoing work as at 13/06/14

Approx 3 weeks on from my last posting on this project with pictures, #40 of 25/05/14 I append some more of my pictures taken Friday 13/06/14 around 1000 from Askew Rd, through the fence of recently completed Rail Depot so as to show current position of the works

Current being constructed block





Area of next block - looks as if piling completed as no sign of equipment

Approx 6 weeks on from my last posting on this project with pictures, #41 of 13/06/14 I append some more of my pictures taken Wednesday 30/07/14 around 1200 - 1230, "close up", from Askew Rd (through the fence of recently completed Rail Depot) and looking down from Windmill Hills (east of St Cuthberts Court) so as to show current position of the well advanced works to block that was started in 2013

Due to current position of fences for ongoing block that was started in 2013 at present it is difficult to get any "close up" pictures of this block and even those taken from distance were with difficulty to vegetation blocking some views

Been doing the dry lining in all the flats on Block 7 & 8 just came across this site so thought i would share a picture




Picture has turned out the wrong way

(EDIT BY MODERATOR - Photo 'turned around' and reduced in size, it was too large to fit the forum page - NH.)

Ochre Yards, Bellway private housing development, Gateshead - ongoing work to block started in 2014, as at 02/11/14

Approx 4 weeks on from my last posting on this project with pictures, #48 of 01/10/14, I append some more of my pictures taken on Sunday 02/11/14 around 0900, from Windmill Hills area, east of St Cuthberts Court and from footbridge over Askew Rd so as to show current position of the works to block that was started in approx May 2014 - now with ground floor steelwork erected and first floor structure and concrete stairwell

Due to current position of fences for ongoing block that was started in 2013 at present it is difficult to get any "close up" pictures of this block and even those taken from distance were with difficulty to vegetation blocking some views - further pictures from within the site area like in the last post would be great help to show the ongoing work

Ochre Yards, Bellway private housing development, Gateshead - ongoing work to block started in 2013 as at 27/12/14

Over 3 months on from my last posting on this project with pictures, #46 of 16/09/14, I append some more of my pictures taken on Saturday 27/12/14 so as to show current position of the well advanced works (by parked cars, possibly complete) to block that was started in 2013

Site compound/site area have now been relocated making it now possible to get "close up" to the block, which from sign is called Midlothian Court

Ochre Yards, Bellway private housing development, Gateshead - ongoing work to block started in 2014, as at 27/01/15

Approx 12 weeks on from my last posting on this project with pictures, #50 of 03/11/14, I append some more of my pictures taken on Tuesday 27/01/15 in period approx 1315 - 1345, from "close up", Askew Rd though fence, footbridge over Askew Rd and Windmill Hills area, east of St Cuthberts Court so as to show current position of the works to block that was started in approx May 2014 - now with ground floor steelwork erected, first floor structure and concrete stairwell and some scaffold in place

Still relatively difficult to get pictures of this block and even those taken from distance were with difficulty due to trees blocking some views - will get worse once vegetation starts to grow

Thanks for these updates Ken.
I'm in the process of purchasing an apartment off plan, for the building you've just been photographing.

Its called Bittern House, (after the A4 locomotive - guessing once stabled there), and the building is now expected to be completed & ready for move-in around summer 2016.

Proposed Block 10 at Ochre Yards

On Gateshead Planning Portal some weeks back

DC/15/00016/FUL

Variation of Condition 1 (approved plans) of permission 103/01 to Block 10 to allow reduction of external access deck at rear on floors 1, 2 and 3, additional entrance and vertical circulation to include minor fenestration and external changes, and displacement of 3 parking bays to access road. (Amended description 19.2.15, additional information provided 18/02/15).

Ochre Yards Half Moon Lane Gateshead NE8 2AA

http://public.gateshead.gov.uk/onlin...=NHTETJHK08J00


Relates to the block to be built parallel with the railway track and south of the block currently being built

Due to the following that now appears on the Gateshead Planning Portal, there will be no further screen prints of drawings from myself but information can be viewed on the drawings within the "Documents" of the above application:-

Many thanks Ken, I have really enjoyed your shots of ochre yards and the many angles you have taken them from. They are always interesting as they also show the city in the background. cheers
