More housing for Hebburn

Another area of South Tyneside which has lain fallow for many years is to be redeveloped for housing. Hebburn’s School Street  village green (see this Google Map), the South Tyneside Council owned land will be developed by a consortium of  Rok plc and the Four Housing Group.

The plans, for the easterly half of the site, include the construction of 71 houses ranging from two-bedroom bungalows to four-bedroom houses.

And, subject to planning permission and a successful bid for social housing grant from the Homes and Communities Agency, works are due to start this summer.

This small area of land was held dear in the hearts of many who grew up by the banks of the Tyne in Hebburn and whilst progress and change are an inevitable part of life, so is reminiscing and holding on to good memories, a local Facebook group has been set up by Carol Unwin, Celebrating School Street Village Green, Hebburn, and she would like you to help provide a gallery of photographs and memories. So, if you can help her out, you know where to go, it will be like a cyber museum for this transient urban common.
