A community event designed to introduce outline plans for a new residential development in Cramlington is set to take place later this month.
Proposals are being developed for a new housing scheme on an eight hectare site to the south of the B1326 and the east of the A189, which it has named Chapel View.
The scheme would include approximately 200 two-storey homes for families and first time buyers, as well as areas of informal green space and a sustainable urban drainage system, and would sit to the east of Cramlington’s new specialist Emergency Care Hospital, which is scheduled to open next summer.
Banks has begun consultations with local residents and community leaders about the project, and will be looking to widen this ideas-gathering process by bringing its exhibition unit to Weldon Road in East Cramlington between 2pm and 7pm on Tuesday, November 18.
Members of the project team will be on hand to answer questions about what they’re looking to do, and to get further ideas from local people about how they think the overall development package might achieve the maximum economic, environmental and social benefit for the local community.
Ideas that have been put forward so far include making improvements to local footpaths and cycleways, improving recreational and play areas for children and introducing new traffic calming measures.
A planning application for the Chapel View development is expected to be submitted to Northumberland County Council before the end of the year.
