TWO homes are planned for derelict land in a Tynedale village.

Clara Vale-based Stewart Property Development has submitted an application to Northumberland County Council to create two semi detached, three bedroomed properties at Leah Gardens, adjacent to Burnside Lodge, Eastgate, in Mickley.

The developer plans to use mainly brick walls for the development, with a small amount of render to the front to match recently built new houses to the east on Leah Gardens.

The existing land is currently unused and sits almost sandwiched between the new development of houses on Leah Gardens, and the row of houses going up Eastgate Bank.

The land is generally on a slope from front to back and has direct access from the A695.

The application is a slight revision to a planning application that was previously granted.

The previously granted application was a three storey building including a basement, but the new application has included for a second storey within the loft space, which would match the approximate height of the neighbouring properties on Leah Gardens.
