Flats/apartments in that location is a good idea.
However I do feel that the size and the design of the building is not in keeping with the local area.
I would also have concerns that the scheme does not have enough private parking spaces to cover 1 per property, let alone 2nd cars or visitors parking.
Ok it’s located at a Metro station and we are set to encourage public transport use. The reality though is that people who will spend the presumably large amount of money on the flats via a mortgage or rent, are likely to also have at least 1 private car as well.

Not really NIMBY’s though are they?

In my view the scale, and the lack of parking are valid concerns.

The people in Holystone who objected to new houses being built on the other half of the field that their own homes were built on were NIMBY’s.

I think the philosophy is that these will be occupied by couples with a commute to Ncl and maybe car sharing scheme / hire on weekends. Everything else built in North Tyneside in the past ten years has parking so this could be seen as something different in a wider portfolio. Not saying I agree with this but I would say its worth a punt, especially if all other immediate parking options nearby are closed off as permit etc.

People need to get over the fact that they can't have cars anymore, especially if they live in a huge city with an out of the ordinary commuter metro rail link.

This development is the most sustainable possible in many economic ways. Its literally in the railway station! I understand overlooking to a degree as well but these historic seperation distances (set out literally according to how far you can discern a female nipple from window to window- 24m) aren't conducive to places that are tight knit and characterful, so compromises have to be made.

New homes could be coming to former Whitley Bay school site

The site off Marine Gardens was home to Croquet Park and Marine Park First Schools until their demolition in 2006

Places for People and McCarthy & Stone have already submitted plans for 65 extra care apartments for the elderly on land next to the proposed homes.

North Tyneside Council are expected to decide on the latest plans by early June

Major renovations planned for Tynemouth's Pier Road Bridge

Chronicle Live website article from 10/04/20

EXTRACT

Major renovations planned for Tynemouth's Pier Road Bridge

North Tyneside Council is behind plans to fill the underside of the bridge with foamed concrete

If the plans go ahead, council workers will also replace the current "substandard" parapet with a reinforced concrete parapet.

New traffic barriers would be fitted, as well as a replacement timber fence either side of the bridge.

The road on the bridge would also be resurfaced, and work would be done to maintain the wildlife tunnel underneath.

http://idoxpublicaccess.northtyneside.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=OJMO3KBHIG500

Applicant is the Malhotra Group.

From the Planning Statement:

The change of use of the former 69 bed Rex Hotel and conversion into a luxury 83 bed care facility. The proposal will restore, remodel, refurbish and extend the existing building to provide state of the art facilities for younger persons with a physical disability (YPD) and a specialist dementia nursing unit.

The proposal would reuse the original hotel building whilst demolishing later, poorer quality, extensions to expose original features and enhance the appearance of the building.

 The main (north) façade will be restored to its original design by continuing the original bay windows to ground level;
 A proposed new glazed slot, in place of the demolished infill block, will create an easily identifiable entrance. The entrance foyer is continued to a full height, lightweight, glazed atrium which runs around the east (side) and southern (rear) facades of the original hotel. The lightweight structure provides a clear visual separation between the hotel and the adjoining terrace to the east;
 To the rear, the new masonry block (which will house purpose built accommodation space) will be separated from original building by the glazed atrium space. This provides a clear separation between the heritage asset and the contemporary extension; and
 The masonry block will be constructed using a red brick, which is inkeeping with the surrounding buildings. It will not match exactly the brick style and colour of the existing hotel building, which ensures that the heritage asset is clearly identifiable from the contemporary extension.
