Jesmond Avenue

The land which lies between Jesmond Avenue and the Medical Centre, the Day Centre and up towards the Premier Inn was recently returned to the ownership of the company who originally developed the properties in Jesmond Avenue in the 1950’s. Planning permission was obtained at that time to build on both sides of the road. However, a compulsory purchase order for the proposed development interrupted the development, leaving an air of uncertainty in the area.

Fast forward to the present time and the By pass scheme has officially been abandoned, and in accordance with the law, first refusal on purchase of land goes to those who originally owned it. Brentland, a company owned by the original builders in association with Dorset County Council, would like to finish what was started all of those years ago.

Some vegetation has been cleared from the site, but following a strong campaign from residents no planning permission has been given as yet. Concerns have been expressed about the water course and damage to wild life.

Hoardings put around the site two years ago have been refused retrospective planning permission and there is an enforcement order to have them removed, but the builder does have the right to appeal that decision.
