Newcastle new homes boost

Plans to transform 150 acres in the Scotswood Benwell area of Newcastle with up to 1,800 new homes have been approved by the Government Office for the North East.

Some 23 expressions of interest were received from house builders and property developers hoping to deliver the £380m masterplan.

A shortlist will be drawn up in October and a final award made next summer.
