A planning application has been lodged which could see homes built in a Tynedale town to provide 'additional, new housing on a large, abandoned allotment.'

Permission to built four three-bedroom homes on land east of Tulip Street, Prudhoe, have been submitted to Northumberland County Council for approval.

The development would also see the creation of five additional, off street car parking spaces.

The applicant is David Lawson Design.

A design and access statement said: "The split level houses are to consist of three floors with a lounge/dining and kitchen at entrance level, and two decent bedrooms at first floor level and a master bedroom and bathrooms at garden level. With the benefit from a private garden to the rear, parking spaces with small cultivated area to the front.

"We believe the impact on the area will be a very positive one creating a new, tasteful and considerate, small development in keeping with the area and surrounding properties and relieve the area of a ‘blot on the horizon’ abandoned allotment/waste ground.

"The development will create new properties suitable to the housing market typical within the area."

South View would be expanded for access.
