Plans have been submitted for 180 new ‘executive’ homes in Backworth.

Story Homes has teamed with Northumberland Estates on proposals for the properties in the village.

We are pleased to be working with Story Homes, and think that the site at Backworth Park will set a high standard for development within the A19 corridor

Colin Barnes, director at Northumberland Estates

The development will see a mix of two, three, four and five-bedroom houses, including affordable homes.

Steve Errington, chief executive of Story Homes, said: “We are delighted to be working with Northumberland Estates on this prestigious development.

“We are looking forward to delivering a development with the standards customers expect of Story Homes while also, through our commitment to use of local contractors and suppliers, bringing economic benefits to the area.”

Colin Barnes, director at Northumberland Estates, said: “We are pleased to be working with Story Homes, and think that the site at Backworth Park will set a high standard for development within the A19 corridor.”

“This part of North Tyneside is critical to the economic success of the region providing high quality houses alongside major employment areas with good services and public transport.”

Northumberland Estates originally obtained planning consent in November 2013 for a development of up to 590 residential dwellings, new primary school and separate building for local community use, with the residential element being split in to three lots.

The Story Homes application relates to one of the three available lots.
