Askew Park New Private Housing (Birtley) | Gateshead | Various | U/C

Separate thread set up for the Askew Park New Private Housing (Birtley) | Gateshead | Various | U/C development, so future postings here please.

As it is nearly a year since an update, can anyone in the area clarify the state of play - is it completed?
