The Holborn area has been largely derelict for many years.

This mixed-use development will transform former industrial land into a desirable location for residents and visitors.

The area is already home to award-winning schemes such as:

  • Harton Quays Park,
  • One Trinity Green business centr
  • Trinity South residential development

This development will strenghten the link between the riverside and the town centre.

For the latest information, read the press release: New Homes to Regenerate Riverside.

Development of new homes

High quality family houses and apartments and the associated infrastructure will be delivered in three phases across the Holborn site.

Permission was granted for 48 family homes, plus reprovision of a play park on Phase 1 of the regeneration.

Outline planning permission was also granted for Phases 2 and 3 of the multi-million-pound development, which will consist of around a further 300 homes, with landscaping.

Keepmoat, working in partnership with Cussins, will deliver the one to four-bedroomed houses and apartments.

To address local need, 15% of these will be affordable homes, delivered in partnership with the Bernicia Housing Group.

Government funding

This major riverside regeneration project had been awarded an extra £1.85 million in government funding.

The funding will be used for civil engineering works needed to prepare the nine-hectare site for development and facilitate the construction of around 300 new homes.

Significant works are needed to make the site more suitable for development.

This includes:

  • installation of a new quay edge wall
  • re-grading of the site
  • decontamination of the ground
  • raising of the former dry docks to overcome serious flooding issues
