Learn about our plans for a final phase of development at Kenton Bank Foot
The Master Plan
The plans aim to promote health and wellbeing by providing footpath links around the site. Pedestrian links though a landscaped area will connect the area to the south of the Metro line to Ponteland Road via Black Lane and Green Lane. A pedestrian link to Station Road will minimise walking distance to and from Kenton Bank Foot.
The new development would support and stimulate the local economy, supporting the vitality of the local area and increasing footfall for local businesses. New jobs would be created and existing jobs supported through construction along with further indirect jobs through the supply chain. It is anticipated that the development would provide in total 51 direct jobs and 22 indirect jobs.
New developments bring additional revenues to the local authority through Council Tax and the Government’s New Homes Bonus.
As people move into their new homes, they would bring further revenue to the local area, with approximately £1.3m of first occupation expenditure and an additional £6.2m spend by residents each year.
