Anything that revives Wallsend town centre has to be good as the whole place looks like Groundhog Day at the moment.

Jobs hope for former Swan Hunter shipyard
by Graeme Whitfield, The Journal Oct 4 2012


PLANS to bring hundreds of jobs back to a former Tyne shipyard have taken a step forward.

Ministers have signed an agreement to cover the Swan Hunter yard in Wallsend, North Tyneside, with a Local Development Order (LDO) that will make it easier to build new factories on the site.

The order, which covers both the former shipyard and a plot of adjoining land, creates a simplified planning process where developers would not need to seek formal planning permission for the site as long as their project meets an agreed criteria.

Projects that would meet that criteria include job-creation schemes in offshore wind energy generation, tidal and wave technology, oil and gas exploration and extraction and advance subsea manufacturing and technology.

The schemes can use either existing buildings on the site or put up new ones, though there will be restrictions on the size of new developments to minimise the impact on the adjacent World Heritage Site at Segedunum.

North Tyneside’s mayor Linda Arkley said: “I am delighted that the Government has agreed the Local Development Order and we can now offer employers keen to invest in the Swan Hunter site a simplified planning process.

The Minister for Energy Ed Davey (centre) takes a tour of OGN in Wallsend

MORE THAN 800 jobs are set to be created along the River Tyne, after plans were approved for a new factory to make parts for offshore wind turbines. The £50m facility is to be constructed at a yard on Hadrian Road, in Wallsend, North Tyneside, after the scheme was given the green light by a planning committee. Offshore Group Newcastle (OGN), which is behind the project, says the factory will help to boost the offshore and renewable energy industry. The new 36,000sqm fabrication unit will be used to produce metal jackets for wind turbines, including the innovative Triton foundation.

Graham Kennedy, director and chief technical officer for OGN and its subsidiary firm Aquind, said: “The achievement of this milestone is excellent news, both for OGN and the North Tyneside area in general. We are delighted that North Tyneside Council has supported this project. We will create around 100 jobs during the construction of the facility and then 700 new sustainable jobs for people in its operation, plus many more in the regional supply chain. We look forward to working with the council and residents as we take this exciting development forward.”

Bit late, but this is great news. Good to see it's a local company too, so they should invest in the local area and won't disappear as soon as someone offers a cheaper location.

This is excellent news for Wallsend and keeps the link with marine based industries alive. I was told last year Shepherd Offshore plan to create 2700 jobs by 2014 and this factory, with its 800 jobs, is another boost to the town. It so makes a change from supermarkets, call centres and warehouses, although the redevelopment of the Forum will create jobs as well.

£13.6m scheme to redevelop Wallsend shipyard
by Sonia Sharma, Evening Chronicle, November 5th 2012


MORE than £13m is to be spent on essential infrastructure work to help revive a former Tyneside shipyard. North Tyneside Council wants to transform the Swan Hunter site in Wallsend into a hub for new firms, bringing hundreds of jobs to the area, but the yard, which was bought by the council in 2009, needs major improvement before any new business accommodation can be built.

The infrastructure work would include dredging, quay edge repairs, road access improvements and new electricity and water supplies. It is estimated the project will cost around £13.6m and the authority has already submitted funding bids to help pay for it. If the bids are approved, around £6.8m is to come from the European Regional Development Fund, £3m from the Homes and Communities Agency, and £3.8m from the North East Local Enterprise Partnership. The scheme is to be discussed at a cabinet meeting next week.

In a report, Ken Wilson, head of regeneration, development and regulatory services, says there are plans to further develop the yard by refurbishing existing buildings to set up a business incubation centre and research and development facility.

There was a piece in the Chronicle the other day about how NTC (North Tyneside council) want to use the former Coop store (or part of it) in the Forum shopping centre as one of their new public centre's (They have a name for them but I forgot it). They already have one in Killingworth inside the White Swan centre, they are building one in Whitley Bay due to be open next year, North Shields library is being converted into one and they want one in Wallsend as well. The ground floor will be left for retail units where as the upper floors will be customers service centre's, a library, rent payment desk, tourist information desk etc and they plan to convert Wallsend's current library into housing. I'm not sure if that housing would be sold to developers or if it would be used as social housing.

Nice to see Wallsend on the up and going back into sea based industries as the town has had it hard since the seventies and has lost 14,000 jobs in the last 40 years.

PLANS are being made to build new council houses at the former headquarters of Wallsend Boys’ Club. The group’s old building, on Station Road in the town, had to be knocked down earlier this year after it was badly damaged in high winds.

The club, which produced top football players like Alan Shearer and Peter Beardsley, is now hoping to develop a new indoor sports centre at Bigges Main, in Wallsend, and part of the funding for the project could come from selling the remaining terms of its lease for the Station Road site.

North Tyneside Council has confirmed that negotiations are under way with the club over buying the lease. If the deal goes ahead, it would enable the authority to build houses for the first time in more than 20 years. The plan is to construct 12 homes on Station Road, comprising a mixture of apartments and bungalows.

Buddle Arts Centre in Wallsend set for restoration
by Sonia Sharma, Evening Chronicle, February 22nd 2013


Sting signs autographs at the Buddle Arts Centre

EFFORTS are being made to bring new life to a former hotbed of the arts. For many years the Buddle Arts Centre on Station Road, Wallsend, hosted plays, music and art exhibitions. Wallsend-born rock star Sting practised there during his early years and held a concert there in 1991. But the Grade II-listed building fell into disrepair and closed in 2008 because of health and safety concerns resulting from failures to the electrical and heating systems.

The building was marketed in summer 2010 and although several groups were keen to use the space, none had the funding to carry out refurbishment work. Now a scheme is under way to restore and re-open the building. The site, which was transferred to the Tyne and Wear Building Preservation Trust by North Tyneside Council a year ago, will get a new heating and electrical system. The venue is expected to be occupied by the end of the year. It is understood the new-look structure will be flexible and able to cater for groups interested in creative ventures and workshops.

From the North Tyneside Council web site @ http://www.northtyneside.gov.uk/brow...ectCategory=23

Partnership secures rebirth of former shipyard

25-MAR-13 Issued by: Jeanette Hedley

The rebirth of the former Swan Hunter shipyard has been secured as North Tyneside Council selects a partner to help deliver its multi-million pound regeneration.

The partner was confirmed by North Tyneside's Cabinet last week, but is unable to be identified until the formal procurement process is completed over the next few weeks.

And once in place they will take the lead in developing the infrastructure on the site, now called Jupiter PaRC @ Swans, including providing ready-to move-into manufacturing accommodation for employers keen to set up business and provide jobs on the Wallsend riverside.

A masterplan is already in place, showing the site has the potential to accommodate up to 50,000 square metres of new manufacturing and office space.

And £13.6 million of capital funding has been secured to deliver the infrastructure improvements to complement the regeneration, including dredging of the quay berths, repair and strengthening of the quay walls, new electricity and water supplies, road and access improvements.

The next phase will see facilities for new small and micro businesses focused on innovation and research and development, with the creation of a Business Incubation and Research and Development Centre on the site. A separate second stage bid for ERDF funding has been submitted for this project.

"This new partnership is the final piece of the jigsaw in delivering the regeneration of this vitally important site and the wider economy of the borough and the North East," said North Tyneside's Elected Mayor, Mrs Linda Arkley.

"The developer partner will provide the ready to move into buildings that businesses want, so they can take advantage of the benefits of this site being part of the North East Low Carbon Enterprise Zone and create jobs for people in this area.

"Together with the £13.6m of infrastructure improvements to roads and the quay, and the exciting initiative to bring a new crane to the site that will improve river access, we can say that Jupiter PaRC @ Swans is well and truly open for business."

The regeneration of the Swan Hunter site was made one of the highest priorities for North Tyneside Council in order to stimulate growth and rebalance the local economy.

The River Tyne is already one of Europe's leading locations for the sub-sea, oil and gas, offshore manufacturing and renewable energy sectors.

The Jupiter PaRC @ Swans site will build on that with a focus on the offshore wind programme - a key part of achieving government targets for renewable energy.

"It is clear that our river-related industries continue to be important economic drivers and that many of the key components are already in place to develop a truly global centre of excellence in advanced manufacturing and engineering on the River Tyne. This will deliver benefits for the local, North East and national economy," added Mrs Arkley.

The site is part of 60 hectares designated as an enterprise zone for advanced manufacturing and low carbon growth within the River Tyne North Bank - along with part of the Port of Tyne, and Neptune Yard in Newcastle.

The main benefits for employers is either five years business rate relief for industrial businesses, which is the Jupiter PaRC @ Swans incentive, or enhanced capital allowances against investment in plant and machinery. There is also a simplified planning process and superfast broadband.

North Tyneside Council has joined forces with UK Trade and Investment, the Homes and Communities Agency, the North East Local Enterprise Partnership and other local authorities to market the site and its advantages for employers.

Paul Woolston, chair of the North East Local Enterprise Partnership welcomed the news. He said: "Offshore energy is a key sector for future economic growth in the North East. It's great news that a partner has been identified for Jupiter Parc @ Swans, which is an important location for the expansion of this sector.

"The North East LEP's large Enterprise Zone sites, including Jupiter [email protected], offer financial benefits to boost an already strong package from this area. We have great infrastructure for offshore wind manufacturing, access to a skilled workforce and a strong supply chain. The next chapter at Jupiter [email protected] is undoubtedly more optimistic as a result."

Martin Wilks , Capital Development Manager at the Homes and Communities Agency said:" This announcement is the culmination of years of work by the partners in this scheme and it is fantastic that the future of this site has been secured to keep engineering works on the River Tyne for the foreseeable future. The facilities on offer at Jupiter PaRC @ Swans along with the business rate relief will help create and protect local jobs."

Work set to start on new library and retail units

Published on Thursday 28 March 2013 09:16



WORK is set to begin soon on the first phase of a major redevelopment that will bring a state of the art library to Wallsend.

NewRiver Retail, owners of the Forum shopping centre, will start work on the library, community centre and extended retail space at the centre, in partnership with North Tyneside Council.

The local authority’s approval of its 2013-14 budget has given the green light for NewRiver Retail to progress plans approved late last year to regenerate the facility and transform the currently vacant Co-op building into a modern 50,000 sq ft library and community centre with three additional new retail units on the ground floor.

NewRiver Retail said the £5m investment to deliver the development demonstrates its commitment to help regenerate the town and drive economic sustainability.

Phase one of the project includes re-modelling the former Co-operative store, the introduction of mixed use community facilities and refurbishment of the Forum.

The relocation of the existing Wallsend library from Ferndale Avenue and the incorporation of the council’s customer service centre, will form the community facility, which will also create new jobs.

Work is anticipated to begin soon with the partial hand over of the retail units expected in October 2013 and completion of the library in early 2014.

I don't like that render one bit. Get a bit of weathering on it after a couple of years and it will show greatly. The design is not cutting edge and is more of a recycled variant from the early years.

BUT, it does look better than what is already there. The quality of materials used will play a major factor to how it will withstand the first 15 years before criticism sets in.

History group re-discovers life in
Wallsend through six decades.

By Sarah Scott, Evening Chronickle, 29th March 2013


High Street West, Wallsend, in 1967

FROM as far back as 1913, grainy images show life in Wallsend, as part of a new DVD bringing the area’s history to life. The DVD titled Wallsend: Those Were the Days has been compiled by Northumberland community history group Six Townships who have enjoyed re-discovering the area. The footage uncovered for the DVD ranges from a Victory Tea at Charles Street in Wallsend in 1918, to the 4th Wallsend Scout pipers in 1927 and the Wallsend May Day parade in 1930.

The group journey back in time using archive film and photographs to witness the historic town through around six decades. The footage captures events, occasions, shops, buildings, Royal visits, fashion, transport, shipbuilding and launches, Coronation Day events, people and much more in days long gone. John said: “I like to see the transport, the old streets and buildings and the old shops. I find it fascinating to look at the prices of things like fish – eight pennies for a pound of fish. It’s amazing how things change, even just glass bottles, it’s all plastic nowadays."

The historical group make their DVDs available to schools for free as they believe it is important for the youth of today to learn about the history of their area. John said: “It’s very important that young people learn about their local heritage, some people take the past for granted but I believe everyone should see a piece of their past.”

It appears the building is owned by Taylored Commercial Ltd which seems to have a track record for buying up closed pubs, demolishing them and building flats on the site – John Gilpin at Denton and Carville Hotel in Wallsend spring to mind.

Known locally as the Ship in the hole to differentiate it from the Ship Inn on Wallsend High Street. It took the name ‘in the hole’ from the fact it could be reached from a pedestrian tunnel that ran underneath the adjacent railway line.

No surprise that the HAG objections are all over that. I have to say that I agree with some of them, the traffic along that road (at least when you get to the traffic lights at Benton) can be pretty bad. Considering the site is right next to Holystone county park, and across the road there is other fields I would have to say that the loss of open space is a bit misleading. Lets not forget that this land is actually private land and anyone stepping foot on it would be leaving themselves open to prosecution on the grounds of trespassing.

Does anyone know whats happening with the Hadrian Village Bellway site at Willington Quay. Last houses are started and should be completed in six weeks but no sign of the six retail units and the family pub planned at east of site off Howdon Lane. Has the plans been amended, I am expecting a revised plan for housing to replace the retail and leisure part of the plans.....nothing to base this on than just the recession which might make the original plans unviable!
