New housing proposal wants your feedback
Plans to create a ‘Lifetime Neighbourhood’ in Amble are being drawn up by Northumberland Estates and they are asking for feedback from the community.
The plans include Independent Supported Living Apartments, residential apartments and traditional housing. The location of the development is on Braid Hill, where the Tesco supermarket had originally been planned.
Northumberland Estates say:
“The current plans and information can be accessed on the website, and we are keen to engage with local people and receive feedback on the proposals, before refining the plans and submitting a planning application.”
The proposed accommodation would provide a range of 1-bed and 2-bed homes, designed to facilitate the changing needs of residents over their lifetimes.
The Independent Supported Living Accommodation (‘extra-care’) will provide 48no. apartments, including 10no. 1-bed and 38no. 2-bed. This will include staff facilities, communal lounges and open green space.
35no. residential (2-bed) apartments will be provided alongside 10no. residential 2-bed houses. The proposals will also include the delivery of ‘affordable housing’ for local people.
The site would be accessed from a new access road from the A1068 via the existing residential estate road at Rivergreen. Pedestrian access will be provided directly from the site to Amble Town Centre via North Street.
The proposals will include extensive green infrastructure and landscaping, including the provision of useable open green space. The landscaping proposals will maximise opportunities for biodiversity.
