Below is as scanned copy of the site plan of proposed works as taken from the planning documentation



and one of the elevations drawings




The site is the triangular area as shown on this copy of Google Map of the area - it being located to the adjoining area to the east (in Google images which travellers caravans on it) which has recently had ground preparation in advance of new housing development ( previously covered on this Gateshead thread, my post #486 of 12/01/12, at the moment nothing further is progressing on this scheme beyond the levelled and rolled site work carried out)

They are still building in areas of high risk. I passed the old Bridon Fibres (British Ropes/Haggies) factory in the Teams on Sunday and theres a massive build going on there. In 1974 the whole area was under three feet of water when a combination of rain (nothing like what we get now) high tides and wind flooded most of lower Dunston.
Since then, the Metrocentre, and most of the riverside down to Dunston Staithes has been built upon.
Maybe, just maybe they have beefed up the drainage sytems but I have my doubts.
I think any potential occupier should check with their insurance company what their premiums would rise to if the area flooded again. It might just put purchasers off!

The Ropery, Derwentwater Road, Teams, Gateshead, 28/10/13

Separate thread now set up for The Ropery (former Bridon Fibres Site) | Gateshead | Various | U/C development.

Can someone clarify if this is now a Completed development?
Went down to Teams area 28/10/13 and it does seem completed as all site boundary temporary fencing has been removed and replaced with permanent metal and timber fences







On checking the web "The Ropery" is covered on this site http://www.paramountcareltd.com/

It gives information about the complex, text including

"These purpose built environments offer an ideal opportunity for a well trained staff team to deliver person centred results for people who society quite often overlook. With knowledge of the person combined with information of the challenges the person faces, Paramount Care will deliver outcomes that will be a great benefit to the people of Gateshead and the North East."

AND

This can also include Motivational, Occupational, Recreational and Educational facilities and activities, within the purpose built environment alongside our homes at Dunston.

The homes are set within 1.5 acres of land and offers a wide range of different types of accommodation, from residential Homes for 4 people through to single occupancy apartments.All are built to an exceptionally high standard and specification.

Regardless of the type of accommodation, all of our bedrooms have full en-suite facilities and each communal area is light, spacious and can be adapted to suit individual needs.

We have provided an environment which is conducive to relaxation within a homely setting, and additional quiet areas and sensory rooms only add to this effect. People using our service are encouraged to personalise not only their own rooms, but also our communal rooms, working together with others with whom they live.



In respect of thread title I have now checked back through the Gateshead Planning Portal documentation http://public.gateshead.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=LYEZ81HK3Y000

and "former Bridon Fibres site" does not refer to the location of this development but for the planned 93 property housing development http://public.gateshead.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=MUSYQVHK08J00 located immediately to the east and on other side of River Derwent - error of my part in posts made

Nothing happening on that site since inial site clearance work that was carried out early 2012

See highlighted scanned copy of Google Map image showing the areas of each development




Perhaps a change to thread title should be made to correct this

New project thread for the housing scheme when/if it ever starts
