A principal contractor has been appointed for the first phase of development on the old Ashington Hospital site.

Gentoo Construction has been appointed on behalf of Bernicia to build residential properties and an elderly apartment scheme on the land.

The site, which has stood unused for over a decade, will see a 40 sheltered accommodation building with communal living facilities and 26 sheltered living bungalows, complete with road and car parking infrastructure, private gardens and soft landscaping.

Gentoo Construction’s Allan Thompson said: “We look forward to being a part of this regeneration project and will work with Bernicia to maximise the supply chain opportunities in this area.”
