Bernicia has applied for planning permission from Northumberland County Council to build a 60 unit scheme on land north of Station Road, Cramlington.
The scheme consists of 48 two bedroom apartments for older people and incorporates the provision of flexible care, enabling residents to retain their independence. The development will feature a variety of amenity areas and offer facilities designed to make the development a vibrant and welcoming place to live.
There will be a further four individual two bedroom apartments as well as eight, two bedroom bungalows for shared ownership targeted towards older people or those requiring level access accommodation.
The scheme is planned for two acres of land opposite the Manor Walks Shopping Centre in Cramlington and close to the local train station.
A tender process is underway to identify a contractor for the scheme. Subject to planning permission, we hope to start on site in October this year, with completion of the development in spring 2021.
