One of my friends from University has bought a house in Hebburn on a new estate where a lot of the houses don’t have a drive or garage, not even one of those on the street drives. It is next to a Metro station, however I’m always under the impression that if you can afford to buy your own home then you likely has a decent enough paying and job will likely be able to afford/will have a car.
A big problem that I can see in future is that if electric cars do become the norm, then how are these people going to be able to charge their cars up at home? The resale value on them in future will just plummet.
Most owner occupiers have at least one car and families will have three. However, it could mean when the Scotswood redevelopment is finished, Armstrong Rd and Scotswood Rd could become a lot busier. I am thinking maybe reopening the railway line and/or introducing more bus services will be needed.

A lot of new housing doesn't have driveways and you see numerous garage conversions on these estates anyways, and I think a lot of planning policies actively discourages car use through density requirements etc. As you say Chris this could come back to bite people, but surely that would hit virtually every apartment complex built in the past 20 years, obviously most new housing developments etc. I'm sure someone will come up with a solution.

Continued rise of Scotswood redevelopment

From the Newcastle City Council web site @ https://www.newcastle.gov.uk/news/continued-rise-scotswood-redevelopment
Continued rise of Scotswood redevelopment
4 December 2017


The Rise - Cllr Bell and Lee McGray

Planning permission has been granted for the second phase of an ambitious regeneration project that has already breathed new life into the west end of Newcastle.

A new phase of 264 homes, at The Rise in Scotswood, will be constructed to the south of the current development area – between Whitehouse Road and the Hadrian’s Way pedestrian and cycle route.

Delivered by New Tyne West Development Company (NTWDC) - a partnership comprising Newcastle City Council and developers Barratt Homes and Keepmoat - The Rise plans to deliver 1,800 properties over a 15 year period. The first phase of 367 properties will be completed in the Summer of 2018. The 239 two, three and four bedroomed homes and 25 two bedroomed apartments, will continue the partnership’s work to improve the choice and quality of new homes available in the area. Construction is scheduled to commence early in 2018.

As building progresses, new open spaces will be created and linked to The Shard – the green corridor that will eventually run the length of the development and connect with Hadrian’s Way.

Lee McGray, Development Director with NTWDC, said: “Homes at The Rise have already proved extremely popular with local people with 75% of buyers moving less than 10 miles to their new home. The scheme has been recognised by both regional and national awards* and has created jobs, apprenticeships and training opportunities for local people - something we will continue to do as the second phase begins. We will also continue to work with and engage with local organisations – including contractors and suppliers on site and schools and neighbourhood groups in the wider area – and we look forward to building on the platform of what is already an exciting, vibrant and sustainable community, close to the heart of the city.”

Scotswood estate (The Rise) residents' fight back against leasehold sale concerns

On Chronicle Live website 02/02/18

EXTRACT

Neighbours on a new build Tyneside estate say they had to fight to stop their leaseholds being sold onto a company in London.

Homeowners on The Rise in Scotswood say the land beneath their houses was almost sold on to the third party without their knowledge.

The New Tyne West Development Company (NTWDC), a partnership of Newcastle City Council and developers Barratt Homes and Keepmoat, said they stopped the sale in response to national concern.

Now, a month after the Government announced new measures to ban leaseholds for new build homes, one neighbour wants to warn new build buyers.

Robin Hume moved onto the estate in December 2015 and said he was told he would be able to buy his freehold for £3,600, six months after moving in.

But when he tried to make the purchase, he claimed the leaseholds on The Rise were about to be sold to an “investment company”.

After a few neighbours banded together in protest, he says NTWDC backtracked and offered to sell the freehold for £4,000 plus legal fees.

It seems Scotswood is moving in the right direction after decades of decline and serious social problems. No one would want a return to the era where a council estate was left to nature, older housing was either boarded up or falling apart, and where the name Scotswood had a certain stigma.

Scotswood Housing Redevelopment, Newcastle in Google Maps 2d & 3d, 21/11/18

Noticed on 19/11/18 that Google Maps opened in 2d version showing a more up to date image - back to normal on my laptop on 21/11/18 opening with 3d version

However it is possible to open by use of "open with 2d"

Using https://support.google.com/maps/answer/3031966?hl=en and “Other versions of Google Maps on the web

And then 2D Mode: "This Google Maps version may work better on older or lower performance computers. It doesn’t have 3D images or WebGL, and it uses simple zooming and transitions. Open Maps in 2D Mode.”

This gave me a view with lot more houses on it compared to that on 3d - see below

Screen prints taken 21/11/18 AM showing latest Google Maps image of Scotswood Housing Redevelopment, Newcastle in Google Maps 2d format



Hope that the 3d version, below, receives the latest image in due course as it is currently showing this "earlier" view on 21/11/18



Images hosted on Photobucket , over 30 hours later than intended due to "another Photobucket difficulty" causing non display of images

Interesting to see the remains of the old streets which contained the Lower Deleval Estate, which had gone to nature in the nineties after most of the tenants were moved out and arguments raged over the future of the site.

Looking at Ken's photos, there are still large areas of Scotswood that can be redeveloped for housing and there must be tens of acres of former streets, mostly to the west, that can be built on. However, still a huge improvement on the mostly derelict Victorian streets and abandoned council estates that blighted Scotswood in the last decade.

Building For Life 12: The Rise (Phase 1), Scotswood

Posted on 2nd March, 2020 by Adil Zeynalov on Newcasle University Urban Design 2019 - 2020 Blog on Building For Life 12: The Rise (Phase 1), Scotswood - Urban Design

EXTRACT

The Rise is located in the electoral ward of Benwell and Scotswood of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. With the completion of 1st phase (4 phases remain)[1], it intends to accommodate “diverse, sustainable and forward looking community” comprised of the local working class population[2]. I will further assess The Rise according to 12 criteria of Building for Life. Each criterion will be granted a red, amber or green colour, depending on its unsuccessful, moderate or successful implementation within the scheme, respectively.

AND

Overall, the Rise (Phase 1) scored 6 green, 5 amber and 1 red, showing that the scheme is partially successful. The main disadvantage of this scheme is the lack of community infrastructure, which will be resolved in later phases. Considering the following issues, I am looking forward to reassess this scheme upon the completion of remaining 4 phases.

While I'm all in favour of Scotswood being redeveloped and new people moving in after decades of decline, I don't want the area to become one big housing estate with no community faciliites and shops which has blighted housing developments in the past. I'm sure a supermarket chain could establish a branch on Armstrong Rd and there is potential for a Brewers Fayre type family pub.
