£6.5m residential development in Gateshead secures planning

The first phase of a £6.5m 17-home development in Tyne and Wear has been given the go ahead by Gateshead Council’s planning and development committee.


The four-bedroom semi-detached houses, designed by BDN Ltd, will be built on a 8,003 sq m site at the edge of farmland, boasting countryside views across the Tyne Valley.

Kapex Construction — part of Newcastle-based, property development and construction business Morton Group — will start building the homes in early 2021, with completion expected in summer 2022.

Kapex Construction plans to build three more phases on the site, providing up to 50 new homes in the suburb.

Chris Nunn, business development director at Kapex Construction, said: “We’re delighted to achieve planning permission for this lovely development on the A692 behind The Cottage in Streetgate.

“These beautifully designed modern homes with large windows are set in a stunning landscape in a very desirable village close to Sunniside and Whickham.

“It’s a great development in a fantastic location, and we can’t wait to start work on building these homes as phase one of our overall four-phase development.”
