This is an exciting new development of family homes that will completely transform the Trinity South site as part of a major redevelopment scheme for the area.
The new homes will be built on a 13.1 acre site including part of the former Circatex factory site at the southern end of Frederick Street. All properties will be built to meet level 3 of the Government’s Code for Sustainable Homes and the homes will include environmental design features that will also help residents reduce their household bills. Trinity South forms part of the South Shields Riverside Regeneration masterplan alongside five other neighbourhoods, and is expected to take six years to complete.
South Shields provides easy access to the A19 trunk road and is close to the Tyne Tunnel at Jarrow.
The town is well connected to other areas of Tyne and Wear and the A194 motorway provides a direct link between South Shields and the A1.
The Tyne and Wear Metro serves South Tyneside, Gateshead, Newcastle, North Tyneside, Sunderland and Newcastle Airport.
There is also a frequent pedestrian ferry service to North Shields on the opposite bank of the Tyne.
South Shields prides itself on being the oldest and largest town in South Tyneside and one of the region’s most popular seaside resorts.
The area boasts a good range of restaurants, cafes, public houses and nightlife as well as hotels, guest houses and caravan parks.
Newcastle city centre is less than 10 miles away and the Metro Centre only 12 miles from Trinity South. As well as Newcastle and the Metro Centre, South Shields also offers a wide choice of high street shops including Debenhams, Next, BHS, ASDA, Morrisons, Dorothy Perkins and Boots. There is also a local market selling local produce every Saturday.
South Shields attractions include the reconstructed Roman Fort and excavations at Arbeia, which form part of the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage site, a seafront complete with a promenade, parks, fairground and amusement arcades, coastal scenery, the National Trust-owned Souter Lighthouse and The Leas cliff tops.
South Tyneside Council has also spent £16 million on the development of a brand new swimming pool and leisure complex on the seafront, which is due to open at the end of Autumn 2013.
