The proposed developments by Advance Northumberland are for a mix of 14 affordable two and three-bedroomed properties to be built on land to the north west of Hastings Street in Klondyke, Cramlington.

Elsewhere, nine two-bedroom bungalows would offer affordable residential properties at a site off Lysdon Avenue in New Hartley, near Seaton Delaval.

Construction work on the schemes could start on site as early as summer 2021 if they get the planning green light.

If plans get the green light, the developments will support upwards of 60 construction and supply chain jobs.

Hedley Planning Services says more affordable housing is needed for Northumberland.

Director Joe Ridgeon said: “We’re working with developers and the local planning authorities to ensure that these schemes are both viable and can start on site straight away.

“The commercial pressures associated with the affordable housing sector are different to volume house building and our experience working for registered social housing providers across the North of England means that we can add value to this type of planning.”

Plans for the remaining developments are currently under consideration with applications to be submitted this spring.
