Plans for a vibrant riverside development in South Shields have taken a major step forward. The plan will transform disused docks and surrounding brownfield land into a bustling riverside quarter for high quality offices, housing and a cultural offer.
Keepmoat, working in partnership with Cussins, have been appointed as the development partner to deliver 365 homes on the multi-million-pound development.
The Council and its partners have completed phase one and two of South Shields 365, a £100 million redevelopment of South Shields town centre, with the sustainable economic vision to breathe new life into the community.
The successful completion of phase one and two includes:
The market square, which underwent a multi-million pound makeover last year, will soon host themed food, craft and farmers' markets as well as the popular traditional markets which run three days a week. (Image courtesy of See Tyne and Wear Differently)
Work on the £100m South Shields 365 regeneration masterplan to transform the town centre is continuing at a pace. Work is now ongoing to bring forward the next phases of the scheme, the transport interchange and new retail and leisure development.
