More information on the timetable for the next version of the council’s Local Plan
Members of the Forum Executive and a senior representative of East Boldon Developments met on 21 September to discuss the company’s plan for the future use of their Station Approach premises, formerly occupied by Doves and Watson Tool Hire, and the role of the Neighbourhood Forum.
Read on to find out more about how the East Boldon Neighbourhood Plan and its design code were able to influence the design and overall quality of a recently approved housing scheme involving the partial redevelopment of an industrial estate (Cleadon Lane).
For some time the Forum has considered that the Council’s Heritage Assets reference documents, including the “Local List”, were out of date and in need of review.
Following consultation the Forum submitted 12 new nominations to be assessed for suitability by an expert panel of independent judges.
STC have recently advised that 9 of the 12 new nominations put forward by the Forum, have been accepted by the judging panel.
On Monday, 13 February 2023 South Tyneside Council planning committee approved the Avant Homes planning application to build 202 new homes on Cleadon Lane.
South Tyneside Council will decide the outcome of the Avant Homes planning application when the planning committee meets on Monday 13 February 2023
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.
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.
South Tyneside Council are undertaking a community consultation on the use of open spaces (including beaches) across the borough. The consultation closes at 5pm on Friday 4 November.
