Learn about our plans for an exciting new community in Upper Callerton
We have submitted a hybrid application with another developer to deliver up to 1600 homes, 394 of which are in detail and the remainder in outline. The application outlines plans for an exciting new community with 2, 3 4 and 5 bedroom homes and 1 bedroom apartments in Callerton to the north western edge of Newcastle Upon Tyne.
As well as new homes the application includes new roundabout access off Newbiggin Lane with a spine road linking through to Middle Callerton, a new primary school, local centre, allotments, new cycle links and footpaths, sustainable drainage, ecology and biodiversity mitigation, open space and landscaping.
The proposed consortium development would see up to 1,600, 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes built at Upper Callerton. As part of this, we are proposing to build the first phases of new homes on the land adjacent Newbiggin Lane.
Our plans also include the development of a new primary school, local centre, areas of green, open space and play areas. New walkways and cycle paths will be designed to provide convenient connections to the local area.
We propose a variety of two story, semi-detached, terraced and detached homes as well as a small selection of 2.5 storey homes.
Design inspiration has been taken from the character of nearby housing estates to ensure the development will be in keeping with the local area whilst keeping its own identity. There will be a mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced designs built with traditional materials.
Our proposals features
Further, the provision of a school and local services within the development, as well as well-designed homes suitable for homes working, will reduce the need to travel and the potential for impacts on the road network
These measures will help to deliver biodiversity rich spaces to maintain and enhance the ecological value of the site and the local area around Callerton and Woolsington. Measures will focus on providing and enhancing habitats for birds, brown hare, bats, amphibians and hedgehogs.
During development and post construction, species and habitats will continue to be monitored to ensure wildlife and habitats are protected and enhanced. This will be achieved through ongoing ecological survey, biodiversity assessments and engagement with local nature conservation groups.

Amenities and Facilities
If our planning application is approved, we will make a financial contribution to Newcastle City Council which will be used to improve local infrastructure and facilities. While the council will decide how our contribution is spent, it could go towards improving local roads, supporting delivery of new sporting facilities, expanding existing healthcare centres or developing educational facilities.
Community Benefits features
Consultation with the local community is currently ongoing and this feedback is being collected by the overall consortium. In order to give feedback on the proposed development please visit the consortium consultation website
