Plans have been approved for 200 new homes in Killingworth.

The application by Avant Homes, working with George F White, includes provision for 50 affordable homes, and will feature two, three and four bedroom properties.

The George F White Planning and Development team, working with a project team including Pod Architecture, produced a carefully considered and design-led scheme that resolved issues including noise and access, resulting in a high quality, well-designed and accessible development proposal.

Stephanie Linnell, a senior planning consultant at George F White, said: “Despite a number of technical objections and the challenging nature of the site, the planning team worked closely with North Tyneside Council to secure a positive outcome, informed by technical reports and utilising bespoke solutions, which will result in the delivery of high quality homes on the site by Avant.”

The development will deliver highways improvements including the widening of the west bound A1056 to two lanes where it joins the Weetslade roundabout.

Scott Varley, managing director at Avant Homes, said: “George F White’s planning team has done a fantastic job in securing planning permission for this development and we intend to commence construction as soon as possible.

“The planning and development detail and problem solving that went into the application was excellent and really demonstrated the expertise George F White has.”
