Christon Park is Adderstone Group's proposal to transform a part of Gosforth Industrial Estate into a new and sustainable residential development of 51 family homes.
Adderstone Group have submitted a planning application to Newcastle City Council to build a high quality housing scheme on a 3.3 acre brownfield site in the heart of Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne.
The scheme, to be known as Christon Park, comprises 51 large four-bed family homes on the site that is best known as the location of the original Greggs' bakeries.
Christon Park has been architecturally designed around a grand crescent and features wildlife corridors and communal "pocket parks" offering a variety of functions from sports activity to a community allotment. The semi-detached and terraced houses each have large private gardens and come with generous parking allocations and some private garages.
Great emphasis has been placed on enhancing biodiversity through wildlife corridors, wildflower planting, swift boxes and additional tree planting.
Adderstone Group's current proposals are part of a wider potential scheme as detailed below.
At the request of the Newcastle city planners in 2015, Adderstone Group initially submitted a vision document setting out the potential benefits of a redevelopment of the entire Gosforth Industrial Estate. The document set out a range of longer term economic, social, environmental, employment and supply chain benefits that could result from a more comprehensive brownfield development, potentially comprising some 200 houses on the estate.
A public consultation was carried out in August 2015 at Gosforth Church Hall and proposals for the scheme have been on display within Gosforth Library. Feedback, mainly in relation to housing types, traffic management and access, has been factored into the latest proposals for the 51 house scheme.
James Atkinson, Adderstone Group Development Director explained: “On a number of levels, this has been a really challenging site to bring forward. We have worked hard with the planners to arrive at a unique, architecturally designed solution.
“We are proposing low density family housing of unprecedented quality, within easy walking distance of Gosforth High Street, local amenities and schools.
“With the support of Newcastle City Council, families could be moving in to Phase 1 homes by 2018."
Adderstone Group is asking members of the public to add a message of support for the scheme to the Council’s Planning Portal website which can be accessed here.

Adderstone Group's vision for Christon Park is to create a high quality scheme, beginning with 51 high quality four bed homes on Phase I and II of the park located on the site of the former Greggs factory. Over time the entire conversion of the park could result in up to 250 sustainable residential homes in the heart of the Gosforth community.
