Home > Inquiries > Birney Hill Garden City extension rejected

Inquiry into a proposal for an exemplar Garden City extension to Ponteland, near Newcastle, on a site within the Green Belt and featuring Listed Buildings. The proposal was promoted on the grounds of strategic regional requirement for executive housing, underwritten by a shortage of housing land supply more generally. The Secretary of State resumed jurisdiction to determine the appeal and dismissed it.

Simon Pickles represented Northumberland County Council.
