Plans approved for North East's largest housing scheme
Published: 16 January, 2012
NEWCASTLE: Planning permission has been granted for the North East's biggest housing-led redevelopment on the banks of the Tyne.
Barratt, Keepmoat and Yuill plan 1800 homes over the next 15 years to regenerate the run-down Scotswood area in the westend of Newcastle city centre.
Housing work on the first 400 homes is expected to get underway this summer.
All will be to Level 4 of the government's Code for Sustainable Homes - higher than the required standard.
The New Tyne West Development Company – the public private partnership formed by the builders and the city council – will be running workshops in coming months to help local firms bid for work on the development.
