Meadowlands, Lesbury, Northumberland
After buying the land from the Duke of Northumberland, this was one of the more challenging projects we have constructed. One of the toughest drawn out planning applications we have been involved in, with planning stipulations being used to try and have us withdraw and plans constantly thrown out by the council for minor issues. We fought the planning process for a very long time before we eventually achieved our goal of building on this controversial site. The resulting development is one to be admired, with some beautifully designed three and four bedroom bungalows and houses all built to a very high standard with large plots of land. The stone for the houses was sourced from Slaley in Hexham, with natural clay roof tiles and stone sills to help produce an estate which is one of the best seen in Northumberland.
