The site benefits from planning permission for 32 dwellings in a mix of high quality houses and apartments. The location is serviced by many local bus routes and the property is only 0.3 miles from Morpeth train station which provides access to Newcastle upon Tyne city centre and Edinburgh. The site comprises land with various buildings which extends to 0.79 hectares (1.96 acres).
The development has been designed to retain the functional relationship between the police station and Morpeth Court House. This has been achieved by ensuring that no part of the development obstructs or interrupts the views between the two buildings. The development is set to carefully maintain the elegance of the Victorian architecture whilst also incorporating a contemporary addition.
The scheme is said to deliver economic, social and environmental benefits and will encourage the effective reuse of a brownfield site and deliver a high-quality housing development within a sustainable location.
