Housing plans lodged

Plans to build dozens of new homes on the edge of Morpeth have been made official.

Developer Story Homes has submitted an application for 39 properties on land at Peacock Gap, south of The Dell and next to the A192.

Last year, an exhibition took place in the town centre as part of the public consultation on the proposal.

The firm’s planning statement says: “The proposed development includes high quality, low density and substantial two and two-and-a-half storey detached residential dwellings in landscaped gardens, with garages and vehicular parking.

“It includes road widening on Fulbeck Lane and some junction improvements with the A192.”
