The search is on for a developer to take on a scheme for 16 homes in Acklington which was approved before Christmas.
The development will create a mixture of properties ranging from two-bedroom bungalows to five-bedroom detached houses on a 1.69-acre site in the centre of the village.
The proposals, which will also see the demolition of Pearson’s Garage along with improved access arrangements, were given the go-ahead under delegated powers by Northumberland County Council’s planning department. The scheme had sparked three objections from neighbours.
Planning permission was obtained by the planning and development team at George F White, which managed the project alongside architectural input by Blake Hopkinson Architecture.
Craig Ross, planning consultant at George F White, said: “We are delighted that the development, which is in a fantastic location in the centre of Acklington, has been given the green light.
“Planning within Northumberland is in a huge transitional period and, as a result, we faced a challenging planning situation which involved overcoming a number of complex barriers.
“I am really pleased with the dedication and ability that the team demonstrated to overcome these obstacles and secure approval.”
George F White is now actively seeking a housing developer to take on the site.

It features two, two-bedroom bungalows, two three-bedroom terraced houses, five four-bedroom detached houses, two four-bedroom semi-detached houses, two five-bedroom detached houses and three five-bedroom detached corner houses.
