The planning officer has said she is minded to refuse unless there is revision to the scheme.

.
I think it has been refused. I actually quite like it, no doubt it will go on to appeal.

Just looking at it, that might be where we will see the Orange-ish store.

It's seems to me that we are creating two new student villages in Newcastle. One near Manors and Bridge street, and another around SJP and Downing plaza. All good but these places the other facilities to open up ASAP, they need the convenience store (they have this on the Manors site with the Sainsbury's local store), they need pharmacy's, GP surgeries, coffee shops, gym, and banks, and everything else. The accommodation is there and going up, they just need the facilities to go with it. I guess you could say the 3rd student village (Trinity square) is doing that.

There doesn't seem to be any takers yet for the retail units on the ground floor of the New Bridge Street development. Which is a shame, because the influx of students has totally transformed Shieldifield, and I'd like to see some of the types of businesses you mention being introduced to the area.

Grand Hotel building set for £2.5m
Newcastle University upgrade.

by Dan Warburton, The Journal, December 10th 2012



A £2.5m cash investment will help refurbish an historic city centre hotel building, and provide student housing. The Grand Hotel on Barras Bridge, will undergo a huge re- development as Newcastle University invests millions into revamping the Grade II-listed building. Built in 1902 and bought 56 years later by the university to accommodate students from across the globe, the investment will help increase the number of en-suite rooms from 48 to 66.

Officials from Newcastle University confirmed work would focus on the building’s interior and the famous Victorian facade will remain unchanged. It means the ‘Grand Hotel’ lettering – carved in to stone at the top of the building between two ball-finial capped gables – will be preserved for future generations. Work on the Grand Hotel is expected to start next month, with completion in late 2013. It comes as Newcastle University continues its huge re-development around the university campus, that has included the £74m construction of the new INTO Newcastle Centre which opened in September.

Mark I’Anson, chairman of the university’s council which approved the investment, said: “We recognise that quality accommodation is an important part of the overall student experience we offer at Newcastle. That’s why we are continuing to invest in the range and quality of our residences. Creating a campus that can be enjoyed by staff, students and visitors alike is also a key priority for the university, particularly when it is so central to the city."

Wellington House - Wellington Street

More student accomodation planned.

Reference 2012/1613/01/DET
Alternative Reference PP-02332292
Application Received Fri 30 Nov 2012
Address Wellington House Wellington Street Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 5TA
Proposal Demolition of existing building and erection of 4/6 storey building accommodating 10 apartments (59 beds) and associated hard landscaping, cycle parking, laundry and refuse storage
Status Pending Consideration
http://publicaccess.newcastle.gov.uk...=MEB5T3BSAP000

Description
The proposals relate to the former Henry Hirst (Provision) Ltd, 18 Pitt Street, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE4 5SU. Generally, the site consists of two buildings – one single storey warehouse and a vacant two storey warehouse/meat processing block – and several car parking and yard areas.
The site is currently used as a cash and carry.

Planning History This application is the third made by the applicant in respect of the site. The previous application, 2012/0982/01/DET, was withdrawn in November 2012 and was for the “Erection of 5 storey building comprising extension to existing cash and carry at Wellington House (Class B8) and ancillary accommodation to upper floors and ground floor, student accommodation at first to fourth floors (4 x 7 beds and 2 x 8 beds) HMO (Sui Generis)” The previous application was a re-submission of a rejected scheme – 2012/0317/01/DET – for the “Erection of 5 storey building comprising of extension to existing cash and carry at Wellington House (B8) and ancillary accommodation to upper floors at ground floor, student accommodation at first to third floors (Sui Generis) and 4 bed duplex apartment at third and forth floors (C3)” Further back, and submitted by a different applicant, was an application for the change of use of use to office units of the warehouse only. This was approved in May 2008, however, it is unclear whether this was ever implemented

This is the PA for the building part of the development - https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=166

Not sure that this sits in the Science City thread as its a little out of the boundary of that development - better placed under Student Accomodation?

Yes, good spot.

It is adjacent to and in between 'Science City' and 'Downing', as your photo (Steve) of June 2012 shows . . .




However, as it is an intrinsic part of the general area of the Science City development, it has been covered on this thread . . .

https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=261

As it is (also) Student Accommodation, I'll put copies over there.

Is there a social housing surplus in Newcastle? Seems to be an awful lot of social housing coming down at the moment, similar to the situation in Sheffield in the 90s that has resulted in a waiting list of 50k+ now for social housing!

Sheffield has had much larger immigration than Newcastle though, which I suspect the housing strategists of the 90s didn't predict and placing more pressure on housing.

Would be a shame to see Newcastle (& Gateshead) in a similar position in the near future though.

I can't be bothered to look at the planning app, but from the article it says 'traditional masonry', and if it's brick, then I think this building will sit quite well with the surrounding streets, but is modern enough to be of 'our' time.

I actually think that that block has potential to be a decent looking block. A "traditional" silhouette and window layout, yet with crisp, modern details. Then again, it can always go one way or another.

This does, of course, judge the building on its own merit and not upon the fact that it's being built on the site of some fine old terraces.

The Greyhound - Pitt Street - Proposed Student Accomodation

Thought I might take some photographs of The Greyhound on Pitt Street before it meets its fate and is redeveloped into living accommodation for students (Planning Meeting decision pernding).

The Greyhound was rebuilt in 1899, becoming a Bass house in 1958 and subsequently sold off in 1982 when purchased by Jennings Bros of Workington and renamed the Cumberland Wrestler. In 1990 its name was again changed to The Milburn (when taken over by Scottish and Newcastle Breweries) but it changed back to its original name in recent years.

Plans are currently with Newcastle City Council and the application is due to be discussed at the next Planning Committee Meeting, 28th March 2013.

2013/0077/01/DET | Change of use of Greyhound public house to student accommodation (Class C3) accommodating 17 studios and external alterations | The Greyhound 70 Pitt Street Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 5ST.
Reference 2013/0077/01/DET
Alternative Reference PP-02331808
Application Received Thu 29 Nov 2012
Address The Greyhound 70 Pitt Street Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 5ST
Proposal Change of use of Greyhound public house to student accommodation (Class C3) accommodating 17 studios and external alterations
Status Pending Consideration
http://publicaccess.newcastle.gov.uk...=ME9B7BBSAP000

The City Officers are recommending refusal of the application on these grounds:

Quote:
1. The proposed conversion works including cladding and external alterations to the property, the dormer roof extension, the internal layout of the proposed studio flats and the refuse storage arrangements are all considered to the detrimental to the character of the area and of the host building which fail to demonstrate a high quality design and to be detrimental to the amenity of occupants of the development and fails to add to the overall quality of the area contrary to National Planning Policy Framework and saved Unitary Development Plan policies EN1.1, H2 and H4.












These photographs were taken of the pub when it was The Milburn:
