Major Northumberland Housing Development Opportunity to be sold by H&H Land & Estates
As part of a multi-million pound Northeast mental health service initiative, H&H Land & Estates has been appointed as agent for Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Trust land sale in Morpeth.
We are delighted to offer to the market development land at Northgate Hospital in Morpeth. Extending to 7.01 ha (17.34 acres) with outline planning consent for 134 units including 24 affordable, this sale is upon the instruction of the Cumbria, Northumberland and Tyne & Wear NHS Foundation Trust.
The site is offered for sale freehold with informal tenders to be received by H&H Land & Estates by 12pm, Thursday 18th November 2021.
The land for sale, which is split across two individual areas, is set within the mature grounds of the operational Northgate Hospital which itself is undergoing re-development. Adjacent to a previous phase of development, it is part of an ongoing strategy to fund the overhaul of the Trust’s specialist medium secure facilities, as part of its CEDAR programme (Care Environment Development and Re-provision).
Commenting on the sale and appointment, Tim Sedgewick, Head of Land Agency (North East & Yorkshire) for H&H Land & Estates, said:
“We are honoured to be entrusted with such a significant sale for the NHS, and one that will have such an enormous impact on future health services offered throughout the region.
“This is an amazing opportunity for the development of highly sought-after housing, in an area that has seen unprecedented demand in recent times, due to its close proximity to Morpeth town centre, the stunning Northumberland coast, and convenience to the A1 and East Coast mainline train service. I expect the sale to attract huge interest and we are excited to work with the NHS to ensure a successful sale.”
The Cedar Programme’s £73 million project includes the development of state-of-art medium secure facilities at Northgate Hospital, the re-provision of Newcastle and Gateshead adult inpatient services in Gosforth and the re-provision of adolescent medium-secure inpatient services at Prudhoe.
Tony Railton, CEDAR Programme Consultant, added:
“The land sale at Northgate Hospital in Morpeth is just the latest in a long line of service innovations and investment by the Trust to ensure that service users have access to the latest state of the art facilities. It demonstrates the Trust’s commitment to regenerate and improve care and sees the latest investment in improving mental health services in the North of England.”
