Newcastle: The Malings, Ouseburn

The Malings is a new residential development on brownfield land on the banks of the Ouseburn, a small river valley running into the River Tyne about half a mile downstream from Newcastle city centre. It represents the 1st phase in a Framework Agreement between Carillion-igloo Ltd - a joint venture company formed between The igloo Regeneration Partnership (an Aviva Investors Fund) and Carillion plc. - and Newcastle City Council and The Homes & Communities Agency. The Framework area covers sites throughout the Lower Ouseburn Valley owned by the Council and the Agency and proposals include for at least 4 more phases delivering around 250 homes, offices, leisure and retail accommodation.

Phase 1 comprises seventy six houses and flats with two main residential types: the terraced house, generally three storeys high with a small garden behind; and a pair of maisonettes where one is stacked over the other to create four-storey units. The lower flat has a garden, the upper flat has a large terrace over the roof of the adjoining three-storey house.

The Malings, named after Malings Pottery which was located on the site from 1800's, will promote more sustainable ways of low-energy living with shared allotments, outdoor clothes drying, easy storage of cycles, recycling areas and ultra-fast broadband. All homes will achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 incorporating Passivehaus levels of airtightness and insulation with PV arrays on roofs. Homes will be built with locally sourced brick and high performance timber framed windows. Roofs will be green and brown with many providing outdoor amenity space for residents.
