Exciting new plans being proposed by Northumberland Estates seek to bring 270 new homes to the east of the town on land at Windy Edge, just off the Alnmouth Road.  

To be delivered over a 10-year period, the plans include extensive green space, seeking to retain some of the existing paddocks and open space located at the site. 

The development, which is on land allocated for housing development in the Alnwick and Denwick Neighbourhood Plan will be phased with the first tranche, looking to deliver around 80 homes.  An affordable housing element is to be included at 15 per cent of the total. A mix of two, three, four and five bedroom homes make up the remaining proposed development  to include semi/terrace, semi/detached, detached and bungalows accessed from the Alnmouth Road.  

The masterplan looks to retain existing landscape features including hedges and trees on all boundaries where possible.  Substantial additional tree planting and open space will be provided to enhance the housing proposals and respect existing residential amenities.  Numerous pedestrian footpaths will be promoted through the site, linking to existing footpaths and public rights of way.  

Local residents are invited to attend a Public Exhibition of the development proposals at Willowburn Sports Centre, Alnwick on Wednesday 19th July from 3.00pm – 7.00pm. Below are consulation documents available for download.
