From the Design & Access Statement:

Brief Overview
High quality design, commercial viability and deliverability were all key factors when DAY were first engaged to develop initial feasibility schemes for the Manors Metro site. Taking these key factors into consideration DAY Architectural set about understanding the site history and context of the site in order to inform and influence the early conceptual ideas striving to deliver a high quality piece of architecture whilst ensuring the client achieved there key brief factors.
The proposal for the Manors Metro site will replace a number of existing buildings with several new ones that positively contribute to the surrounding built environment whilst also providing high quality city centre accommodation close to both universities for students.

Wheres the masterplan. Where am I looking in the planning docs?
Noticed it in the Design and Access statement Pg54

If I were Nexus/Metro, I would start think about developing some retail in Manors metro station as it looks in the next 5 - 10 years, there is going to be 100s of apartments built literally on its doorstep. Certainly Nexus should look a better integrating/modernising Manors train station as access to to Central station!!

^Another large proposal for Newcastle. i feel this is the appropriate scale for the area and it is good to see development around the Manors metro station. In the Design & Access statement there is shown an adjacent proposal of similar scale - also student res. However this area is used for office space, something our city centre is short on, and I don't think the council should allow for student residential to be built here.
Really?! There are loads of empty office buildings all over Newcastle, including the old BT office on the Quayside that has been empty for ages. If Newcastle was that short on office space, we might actually be getting some decent buildings and not just student accommodation, surely?

Additional info can be found in page 58/59 showing a scheme by Intersect architects. This is for Clough House in the south corner. Just a thought does anybody know who owns the land .

What this place needs is a properly thought out masterplan.

I don't like the proposal tabled. Its an example of poorly designed architecture trying to be a landmark to hide the fact they are stuffing in units to profit. I don't think more poorly designed staggered massing will help either.

It funny isn't it, how mixed use regeneration is tabled, but its always Student accommodation that leads. The cynic in me worries that the developer tables a mixed use scheme to win over the City Council but then economic excuse after excuse occurs resulting in proper residential and office is thrown out in favour of stag do hostel rooms and student ghettos that give better returns but poor offering to the city.

It happened at Downing Plaza, and I am very worried it could happen here and St. James Metro.

Back to a masterplan. Its all very well proposing new buildings, but what about the links, connections and infrastructure?

In 10 years time Manors could be a much more populated station. If the Ashington line is restored, and if better stopping services along the ECML occur then Manors could be a decent place to avoid the rush at Central and get into the city and Quayside from the East, as well as interchanging on the Metro.

This link to the city from the East can only occur if better links across the CME is created.
As part of an agreement for development a joint funded new bridge to connect up Manors and East Pilgrim Street could be created. This would not only allow for Manors to rejoin the city proper, but also allow for EPS to be a thoroughfare once gain, as opposed to its current state as an isolated cul de sac. Furthermore, a better restored Manors station could reopen links to the South; Battlefield and Quayside and allow for a Manors area to be a linking space, rather than an island of nothingness isolated ironically by connective infrastructure of motorway and railway.

Student Accommodation is all very well, but it is not enough to allow for a vibrant city centre. Good quality residential and office space is also required, along with retail and leisure to create a proper mix and civic feel. One of poorly designed landmark plots that do little to raise the quality of the area beyond some average landscaping will not cut it.

But its good to see something is happening here at the very least.

Another little snippet from the D&A:

Within Central Park, the business park which houses the Manors Metro site, there are a number of other proposals currently being developed.
This one is from Intersect Architects and is intended to replace the existing Clough House in the South corner of the site.
Similarly to DAY’s proposal, the scheme seeks to address the surrounding context via a series of steps within the design.
Designs for both schemes are in development and would benefit from moving forward collaboratively

I would be happy about this however considering the poor quality of architecture served up by Intersect (Clavering Place) and Day Architectural (St. James Point and Bradford Square) I am really rather nervous that the actual product in our city will be commercial flashy gimmicky architecture that pays no respect to the historic elegance of our city but rather envelopes overdevelopment in a tacky skin replete with a lack of care to the design output.

Anyway, this sketch shows how Manors could become far more of a connective space.



Ignore the massing, thats just there to suggest built stuff!

love this - would really help regenerate EPS and Manors if Market Street was extended over the motorway. Considering this site has excellent road and metro access NCC need to think about a proper masterplan for the site and how it links to the wider urban fabric rather than building piecemeal on the business-park style plots currently there.

Bid to replace Newcastle office block with 14-storey student accommodation block

Bid to replace Newcastle office block with 14-storey student accommodation block
15 Apr 2016 By Coreena Ford


This shows how the scheme and two others would sit together

A property firm has submitted plans to flatten Newcastle’s former tribunal offices and build a 14-storey student accommodation scheme.

Wordie – a Glasgow-based group which has appeared on the Sunday Times Rich List – plans to expand in the North East by demolishing Manor View House in the Manors area of Newcastle and building a student housing scheme on the site with 407 bed spaces.

The scheme is the third student accommodation scheme to come before Newcastle City Council planners within months, joining plans to convert Clough House and create 353 bed spaces, and proposals to demolish 1 Kings Manor and build a property to house 462 students.

The complimentary projects would breathe new life into a part of Newcastle which has been neglected in recent years with many of the office blocks lying empty, despite being something of a tech park in the 1990. Architects enlisted on the scheme say it makes perfect sense for the two new build schemes to be built collaboratively.

A design statement submitted by DAY Architectural Ltd said: “The proposal for the Manors Metro site will replace a number of existing buildings with several new ones that positively contribute to the surrounding built environment whilst also providing high quality city centre accommodation close to both universities for students.” Collectively using information from both Newcastle’s Tall Building Guide and The Tyne Gorge Study, key vista view points and panoramic vantage points have been identified as a response to the topography and existing built environment. These will be key in developing the proposal. Within Central Park, the business park which houses the Manors Metro site, there are a number of other proposals currently being developed. One is from Intersect Architects and is intended to replace the existing Clough House in the South corner of the site. Similarly to DAY’s proposal, the scheme seeks to address the surrounding context via a series of steps within the design.

The area originally built as and called The Technopole . . .



The "Technopole" is actually more like an out of town Business Park, than a City Centre location!

As I understood it at the time, this and the equally dire out-of-town-style Warner cinema built on the other side of the road at around the same time were associated with the Urban Development Corporation -- the UDC developed the "Technopole" scheme (which I don't remember ever attracting any particularly leading-edge technology firms, despite the marketing pitch), and the City Council did the deal for the cinema to prevent the UDC from grabbing the site and claiming credit for redeveloping it. It would be interesting to try to work out how much public money went into the two competitive "regeneration" schemes (or how much future income was foregone in the case of the Council selling the site to Warner), and whether there were any benefits compared to leaving the sites alone until university expansion created sensible uses for them.

Just a snippet of info, 1Kings Manor(The Twin towers, the northern block) has requested extra time till 30 April. The Clough House Development ( The Southern Block has been withdrawn) 6 - 12 floors with a central courtyard) that would struggle to gain any natural sunlight and was a poor design in my humble opinion, it looked like a cluster of tenement blocks. so no loss there. cheers

High quality design, commercial viability and deliverability were all key factors when DAY were first engaged to develop initial feasibility schemes for the Manors Metro site. Taking these key factors into consideration DAY Architectural set about understanding the site history and context of the site in order to inform and influence the early conceptual ideas striving to deliver a high quality piece of architecture whilst ensuring the client achieved there key brief factors.

Planning Officers are recommending refusal on this proposal - report to Planning Committee Meeting, 27th May 2016:

Taking into account all of the above assessment and representations received it is considered that the development would not comply with national planning policy set out in the NPPF and the provisions of the statutory development plan.

The Planning Committee is therefore recommended to refuse planning permission for application reference 2015/1585/01/DET for the following reasons:

1. The proposed development by reason of its scale, massing and layout, would fail to enhance the positive characteristics, context and opportunities of the site, would fail to relate well to the site and surroundings and would prejudice redevelopment of adjacent sites. The proposed development would fail to respond to local character and distinctiveness and would not respect important views from or across the Tyne Gorge, from defined major movement corridors and of distinctive landmark buildings contrary to National Planning Policy Framework, Core Strategy and Urban Core Policies CS2, CS15, CS18, UC11, UC12, UC13, UC15 and saved Unitary Development Plan Policy EN1.1, EN2 and EN2.1;

2. The proposed development would fail to deliver a good standard of amenity for future residents by reason of the poor levels of daylight and sunlight and poor outlook and privacy from habitable rooms The application is therefore contrary to a core planning policy principle of the National Planning Policy Framework and saved Unitary Development Plan Policies H2 and H4;

3. The application has failed to secure through a finalised S106 agreement planning obligations to mitigate the impact of the proposed development. The
equired measures would comprise:
i) £107,184 towards the New Bridge Street Cycle Improvement Scheme;
ii) £119,196 towards open space;
ii) Final Travel Plan implementation and monitoring;
iii) Training Employment Management Plan; and
iv) Details of Car Parking Management Arrangements at the beginning and
end of term.
As a consequence, the proposal would be contrary to Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan, Policies CS5, CS13, UC6, DEL1 and Unitary Development Plan Polices OS1.1, OS1.2, T4 and T7.1.

4. The development would by reason of its layout and lack of on-site landscape planting fail to protect and enhance the Urban Green Infrastructure network across the site to deliver a high quality design, ontrary to Polices UC15, UC12 and CS18 of the CSUCP and Policies EN1.1 and EN3.2 of the UDP.
