OLD DUNSTON HILL SCHOOL SITE UPDATE:
Cllr Chris McHugh: “I have just been informed by Gateshead Council officers that, following the recent exchange of contracts between Gateshead Council and Meldrum Construction, on-site investigation work will shortly take place.
The intrusive investigation work on the former school site will form part of the preparations for Meldrum to submit their planning pre-application later this month.
The plans will include a number of family homes and a state of the art cancer support centre to be run by local charity FACT.
I am sure you will agree that this is excellent news and I will update you with any useful news going forward.”
