Planning applications before Northumberland County Council.

A reserved matters application for land south of Aiden Grove and Lynemouth Road is recommended for approval at Tuesday’s meeting of the county council’s planning committee.

An outline bid for up to 400 homes on the former Ellington Colliery site was approved in August 2015. Full plans for a Co-op store were then given the nod in November last year. The first phase is for 99 of the proposed 400 homes, which would consist of 14 two-bedroom apartments, four two-bedroom bungalows, 15 other two-bedroom properties, 30 three-bedroom townhouses and 36 three and four-bedroom detached properties.
