The Ageing Well Village is the first of its kind in the UK - a concept created by Northumberland Estates in collaboration with Age UK and NHS North East and North Cumbria - designed to reduce the need for hospital admissions and provide longer-term care within a residential community. 

The plans for the site incorporate high-quality modern housing, care facilities, new technologies, social engagement and well-being services within a community environment.  The 11.86-acre development offers high-quality residential housing with integrated health, care and frailty services all in one place – breaking the mould of traditional ‘standalone’ units. North Tyneside Council has committed to the Frailty Hub and Tynemouth Nursey Group to the pre-school nursery. 

35 residential dwellings – comprising two-bed bungalows and two and three-bedroom two-storey houses - are included. 


An apartment block accommodating 54 one, two and three bedroom flats have also been approved.
