POSTED ON16th April 2021
Greenfield Employment Site 7.43 hectares (18,36 acres) - This triangular shaped site is generally level in nature but traversed by overhead power lines and two water courses. Currently the farm access to the site is from Luke’s Lane and this is the most cost effective position for any future access to the site although there may be an opportunity to take access directly from the A194M either in the form of a left hand in/left hand out junction or the significantly more expensive option of a roundabout.
Details of the available services are available on request.
The western area of the site (shown shaded blue on the attached OS Promap) and extending to approx. 3.8 hectares (9.4 acres) is allocated in South Tyneside’s Draft Local Plan as land for general economic development and therefore suitable for uses falling within Classes B2 and B8 of the Town & Country Planning Use Classes Order. The plan was issued prior to the changes to the Use Classes Order in August 2020 and therefore the site may also be considered for some or all of the new ‘E’ Class which covers a much wider range of business and retail uses.
It is worth mentioning that the area of land immediately to the north of the Metro line is being developed for housing and as part of the release of these two areas of land there is land safeguarded for a possible new Metro Station at Monkton Fell which, if it proceeds, will service both the new residential and employment sites along with the existing Monkton Business Park.
Interested parties are recommended to discuss their specific proposals with the planning department of South Tyneside Council on 0191 424 7688 or alternatively visit their website at www.southtyneside.info/planning
