Cleadon Lane Industrial Estate

Avant Homes Proposed Cleadon Lane Development

    Avant Homes have made further amendments to some of the scheme documents in response to the recent comments submitted by the Forum and South Tyneside Council. The Council published the revised documents on its planning portal in early January 2023.

    The Council now proposes to take the proposed scheme to its planning committee on 13th February 2023.

    The Forum has provided further comments in response to the latest changes.

    Proposed Telecommunications Mast on greenbelt, east of Cleadon Lane Industrial Estate

      A planning application has been submitted to South Tyneside Council for a 30 metre high telecommunications mast to be located in the field to the east of Cleadon Lane industrial estate. This is a replacement for the mast currently located within the industrial estate, which will be displaced by the proposed housing development. The proposed location is sited within the green belt and will make the mast much more prominent than the current mast.

      Forum Application for Re-Designation

        The Forum has applied to South Tyneside Council so that it can continue to be recognised as a formal body representing residents particularly when dealing with the Local Plan and other planning applications.
        Neighbourhood forum designations only last for 5 years and East Boldon Forum was initially designated in January 2018 so will cease to be recognised by the council unless the re-designation application is approved.
