We are delighted to have secured planning permission for 16 luxury apartments on Anderson Green.
The development will sit on what is currently a vacant site adjacent to Saltwell Business Park, a conversion of the Grade II listed former open-air school at the junction of Durham Road and Joicey Road in Gateshead. The school was originally built in 1936 to care for pupils with asthma and tuberculosis.
The new residential scheme, designed by Ryder Architecture, will see 16 high-quality apartments with open plan living spaces facing a landscaped green, surrounded by mature trees taking advantage of views and natural light. The ground floor units will open onto private external areas, and the upper units will have balconies and private terraces.
Nelson Carr, Development and Investment Manager at Adderstone Group, said:
“It’s never easy to secure planning consent for a new development within the curtilage of a listed building. Our vision was for these beautiful new homes to sit perfectly alongside the eclectic mix of existing occupiers, making for an exemplary mixed-use community. This consent should enable us to realise this vision.”
Anderson Green will add a new dimension to the remarkable transformation of our Saltwell Business Park development. The buildings had become derelict and sat empty for more than a decade prior to Adderstone converting them into a bustling hub in 2011. The park is now home to several small and medium-sized businesses, a nursery and a dance school.
The planning permission came as a result of the April meeting of the Gateshead Council Planning and Development Committee.
