Consent for 400 homes
Retail store to be developed
Overall site covers 36 acres

With planning consent secured in 2015 for 400 new homes and a local convenience store, the Saxton Vale site in Ellington, Northumberland has since sold two plots to Arch (Development Projects) for building 184 homes – 99 homes in phase 1 and a further 85 to be built in Q4 2018 in phase 2.


The site, built on the former Ellington Colliery which closed in 2005, forms part of our wider North East portfolio, which also includes key employment sites such as Lynefield Park (the former Alcan Smelter in Lynemouth) and Wardley in Gateshead; a site that forms part of the area’s proposed International Advanced Manufacturing Park.


The Saxton Vale site has been part remediated for development with further remediation being undertaken in Summer 2018 to enable the next land sale (Phase 2). Ascent Homes are on site with their development named ‘Wayside Point’ on Phase 1, building out 99 Homes where a further 85 Homes will be brought forward from early 2019 by Ascent Homes on Phase 2.


Phases 3 and 4 of the development, which total approximately 15 acres, are available to purchase providing for a further 216 homes. Our consent also includes permission for a food store totalling 3,000 sq ft. This plot is located in the middle of Phases 1 and 2 and remains available for freehold purchase.
