Another retailer now confirmed for Hermiston Retail Park is Brantano the footwear retailer, which is a new retailer to Consett.

Architect wins award for restoration of historic Walter Wilson store in Amble

Architect wins award for restoration of historic Walter Wilson store in Amble
By Tony Henderson - 5th November 2013


The Walter Wilson store in Amble in the late 19th Century

Architect Christopher Baglee shopped about for solutions when faced with the task of restoring a Northumberland store to its 19th Century heyday.

The 1837 store in the Amble conservation area had been much altered during the 1970s-80s.

When asbestos panelling and plastic was stripped away, it was found that the shop in Queen Street had been a Walter Willson store from the late 19th Century.

Walter Willson had owned scores of grocery stores throughout the North East.

Christopher, an associate at Spence and Dower Architects in Cambo in Northumberland, eventually tracked down the Walter Willson archive in Beamish Museum in County Durham.

And remarkably the archive contained a set of exterior and interior pictures of the Amble shop which Christopher was able to use as a template for his restoration.

Now the project has been voted joint winner in the built environment section of the Northumberland Coast AONB Partnership 2013 Awards for Excellence.

Two doorways and a window of the shop, which had been blocked up, were restored along with the 19th Century window design and stonework revealed under the 1980s alterations has been made good.

Timber Walter Willson signs which were also discovered have been left in place.

Layers of paint applied since 1837 have been scientifically analysed so that the store could be returned to an original colour scheme.

The other joint winner was another shop restoration scheme at The Wydenwell in Bamburgh.

New retail development likely in Northumberland town

From the Northumberland Gazette @ http://www.northumberlandgazette.co....town-1-6407961

New retail development likely in Northumberland town

by Ben O’Connell - 30th January 2014


The Willis site in Alnwick

Plans to build two new stores on an empty site in Alnwick look set to get the green light next week.

An application, by Northumberland Estates, for an Aldi food store and a Majestic Wine outlet on the former Willis of Alnwick site on South Road goes before Northumberland County Council’s north area planning committee next Thursday.

And it was revealed today that planning officers have recommended the scheme for approval, as ‘the proposal would deliver a sustainable form of development on the basis of economic (contributing to economic growth, investment in the town, job creation and regeneration of a vacant site), social (creating local employment opportunities and enhancing retail choice and range within the town) and environmental considerations (enhancement and regeneration of a vacant previously-developed site, use of sustainable construction and efficiency measures, and promotion of sustainable transport)’.

When the plans were unveiled last summer, it was reported that the development would create more than 30 jobs.

But the scheme has attracted three letters of objection from local residents, which raise concerns over additional traffic, and two more citing a lack of need for another discount food store.

Morrisons, Alnwick and District Chamber of Trade and Alnwick Civic Society have also raised concerns.

Flurry of building work at £2.5m Harbour Village site - Amble

Flurry of building work at £2.5m Harbour Village site
10th November 2014


Development work in the harbour area of Amble.

The first part of Amble’s ambitious £2.5million Harbour Village development should be up and running in December, and businesses are already clamouring to open at the site.

The town’s harbour front is currently alive with building activity as the major scheme, which includes the construction of 15 retail pods and a seafood centre, takes shape. It is hoped that the overall project will be completed by March next year, but the Village is due for a phased opening, starting next month.

Harbour Village coordinator Sarah Dunne said: “Everything is progressing well and we have plans for retail pods opening for Christmas 2014. We are looking at having 12 of them up and ready to go in December. Part of the site will be accessible by then too. The seafood centre will take a little bit longer and it, along with the three other retail pods, should be ready to go by the end of February. We have had some great initial interest in the 15 retail pods, including a mix of existing businesses and starts ups, and we are looking to get some trading before Christmas, but we are still looking for more tenants. If there are any small or start-up businesses offering crafts, food and drink, or even leisure services which are looking for small retail premises in a fantastic location, we would like to hear from you.”

As part of the Harbour Village project, a new Coquet Shorebase Trust building is being developed and construction is well under way. The new facility, next to Amble Boat Club, will provide safer, cleaner and more spacious accommodation for watersports enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. Work is also taking place on linking the harbour area and the marina.

Green light for fast-food bid - Alnwick

From today's Northumberland Gazette @ http://www.northumberlandgazette.co....-bid-1-6953313
Green light for fast-food bid
14th November 2014


The site of the proposed McDonald's restaurant at Cawledge in Alnwick, between the petrol station and the A1.

A fast-food giant’s move to a north Northumberland town is now a step closer after its planning application was approved.

In September, the Gazette reported that McDonald’s wants to build a drive-thru restaurant on the outskirts of Alnwick, creating 65 jobs in the process.

The global corporation lodged a full application with Northumberland County Council for a site which already has outline planning permission at Cawledge, between the A1 and the Alnwick Services petrol station. The scheme has now been given the go-ahead under delegated powers as there were no objections raised by residents or Alnwick Town Council. One of the conditions on the approval is that development begins within three years.

The proposed restaurant would be accessed via the road into the filling station and have a drive-thru lane as well as 42 parking spaces. The interior would have space for 96 customers and the company wants it to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It would also provide ‘a minimum of 65 additional jobs for the community’, both full and part-time roles. Excluding the management team, ‘almost all of these’ would be recruited from the local area.

The only outstanding issue relates to a separate application for a free-standing 12-metre totem sign at the site. The Highways Agency, which is responsible for the A1, raised concerns about its position in the original application, which has now been resubmitted to address these concerns. The town council objected to the height of the sign, suggesting it should be at least two metres shorter.

This from the Northern Echo,--

Site of now shelved Tesco store in Stanley, sold to discount retailer



A STORE group has sold a town centre site it no longer plans to develop after a nationwide expansion re-think.

Tesco was granted permission to build an 86,500-square foot store, with a 400-strong workforce, in Clifford Road, Stanley, in 2011.

Plans were later scaled back, to a 61,000-sq ft development, creating 250 jobs, in January 2014.

But, by January 2015, Tesco announced the proposed new store was among 49 scrapped from future development plans after a downturn in company profits.

A store spokesman has now confirmed: “Since then we have been in discussions with interested parties, which have come to a head.”

He confirmed agreement has been reached with national discount retailer Home Bargains to purchase the full Stanley site.
