The Proposals

Further details on the site locations and initial proposals can be found below.

Hipsburn

We are proposing to submit an outline planning application for the delivery of approximately 60no. homes on land to the north of Alnmouth Station.

The proposals would include the delivery of ‘affordable’ housing for local people alongside parking, landscaping, drainage and a new surface level car park (approximately 80no. spaces). It is proposed that the car park would serve Alnmouth Station and also the local community and visitors by helping to alleviate congestion in the surrounding area. It is intended that a new bus service will be able to utilise this car parking area, providing a much-needed facility for direct drop-off/pick-up to and from the Station.

Alnmouth Station is a key asset for North Northumberland and it is intended that the proposed development will secure its long-term future and enhance the Station as the gateway to all that North Northumberland has to offer. Access to the site would be taken from the A1068 to the east of the Site. The proposals seek to deliver a range of house types and sizes including two, three, four and five bedroom homes.

Lesbury

We are proposing to submit an outline planning application for the delivery of approximately 40no. homes on land to the north of St Mary’s Church in Lesbury.

Access to the site would be taken from Longhoughton Road (B1339) to the east of the Site. The development would include two, three and four bedroom houses, as well as bungalows, with the aim of offering a range of new housing suitable for families, young couples and the elderly, in addition to affordable housing to enable local people to get onto the property ladder.

The development will include an area reserved for Community Facilities, whilst the final use is to be confirmed this could comprise accessible open green space, play facilities or a community orchard, with an enhanced pedestrian access connecting this area to the existing village centre with a great deal of attention being paid to retaining landscape features and additional tree planting.
