Its not too great is it - but not that bad. Better than the empty lot I suppose. Apart from the Ryder designed but largely hidden Studio 5 office block, it was an unremarkable looking building.

Still I wish it was still there.

Tyne Tees site to be affordable housing

Tyne Tees site to be affordable housing


By The Journal - 23rd August 2013



One of the UK’s largest providers of affordable housing has outlined plans to build new homes on the site of former TV studios.

Gosforth-headquartered Home Group has submitted plans to Newcastle City Council to build 30 homes on the site of the former Tyne Tees Television studios as part of a £3.1m development.

The City Road site used to be home to the ITV studios where the celebrated music show The Tube was filmed from 1982 to 1987, but the building was demolished in 2010 after the station relocated to Gateshead and no permanent tenants could be found.

Following a protracted legal process and meetings with council officials the site was finally cleared for development last September, and consent was granted for the construction of dedicated student accommodation and a hotel, both of which are being constructed by other developers.

Now, the Gosforth social enterprise has put forward plans, already recommended for approval, to build a six-storey apartment block which will provide 16 affordable rental homes and 14 for shared ownership.

The homes will be two-bedroom apartments and the development will also provide parking for 19 cars and to encourage environmentally-friendly forms of transport a storage unit will be built for 24 cycles.

Tony Osborne, Home Group development manager, said: “The City Road site has been standing empty since Tyne Tees moved to new studios and it was later demolished. It’s now time to bring the site back into new use to help revitalise this area which is close to the city centre.

“We plan to build 30 affordable homes which will provide much needed homes for people who need to rent and those who want to get a foot onto the property ladder through shared ownership.

“We’ve worked closely with the local authority on compiling this planning application and we’re delighted that it has been recommended for approval. If we gain planning permission we would hope to start on site later this year.”

At least some of the accomodation is designed for affordable housing and isn't being given over entirely to student flats, unlike virtually all other new properties being built in Newcastle.

Yeah, I understand it as that image just above posted by Steve is of the aparments which are non-student, and are for affordable housing, and the other building (clad in blue/green - a separate scheme, with the uni halls hoarding) is the student accom element of the sites. So 2 schemes so far, and a hotel to follow. I may have got that wrong mind!

Yes that's correct - this is an excerpt from the Report to the Planning Committee, 23rd August 2013, copyright Newcastle City Council:

"1. On 29 June 2012 Planning Committee considered a hybrid application at the former Tyne Tees Studios, Howard Street, Newcastle. Detailed planning permission was approved for a 386 bedspace student accommodation with associated reception, management and administration areas, laundry, storage, plant and student hub/cafe with related pedestrian, cycle and vehicle access to car and cycle parking and bin storage. The Outline elements of the approval were a 139 bedroom hotel with associated bar, restaurant, reception, ancillary accommodation, associated servicing and drop off areas and a residential block of up to 30 apartments with associated parking and landscaping. All matters for both the hotel and residential units were reserved for further consideration.

2. The current proposal is for the construction of a five/six storey residential block comprising 30 apartments, associated communal areas, hard and soft landscaping and provision of 19 car parking spaces and 24 cycle racks. The application has been submitted as a detailed application rather than a reserved matters application as the proposed scheme is outside of the approved parameter plans submitted with the 2012 application.

51. Home Housing Group are the applicant for this detailed application – they are a Registered Social Landlord. Whilst again a condition would be imposed in relation to a scheme of affordable housing to Home have indicated that from their point of view they would be looking to deliver all of the flats as affordable housing. This is clearly welcome for the city. The provision of affordable housing can be secured through a planning condition."

Oh that is sad. Thsi building will replace Ariel House - the Admin Block - to give it its proper name.

That will be an end to the iconic Links mast that's been a feature on Newcastle's skyline since 1958.

I was conceived in that building during a Christmas party in 1969 - allegedly.

No Dan, the development you alluded to is on Howard Street and not Aerial House - not seen any plans for changes (demolition) for that particular building.

I understand that plans are afoot for the installation of a blue plaque at Aerial House to mark the fact that the 'tadpole met its mark'.

Yes, that would be a sad loss, but are you sure that is what is happening?

The last time this aspect of the Tyne Tees TV Site Development was discussed, it looked like it was shown that this specific block was on another part of the site altogether, on Howard Street, and that the 'Admin Block' (where all the top managers at TTTV were based) was not even part of this development . . .

The render just looked like it would fit the size of the plot.

I'll be there for the unveiling Steve!
