We've had a busy summer working on our Redevelopment scheme. Design detail has been further developed to provide information to inform Gateshead Planning Authority. A second pre-Planning Application was deemed necessary which was submitted in June and which received a favourable response. This was then followed with the full Planning Application in July and we were delighted to receive planning approval on the 30th August. Sufficient work has now been completed on the architectural, structural and services design to enable us to seek final estimates from our two shortlisted Contractors. We will then interview the bidders and appoint one Contractor to work with to develop the final scheme details, which then enables us to meet our date for commencement of construction work in Spring 2020.
