Social housing, Cleadon Vale, South Shields

Estate replaced

This picture represents the future of social housing in South Shields, the majority of the estate known as Cleadon Park has been demolished, hundreds of homes and families facing a new future. The replacement houses are being built to the highest eco-friendly standards and are a mix of houses to buy, houses to rent, and houses to share (buy-rent.) The new development is now called Cleadon Vale and this picture shows what used to be Ashgrove Avenue. Soon the new roads will be surfaced and the whole job completed.

  3. sless – I find your use of a term for the former residents to be quite denigrating therefore it has been edited. Those who wished to return to Cleadon Vale and help promote the benefits of a tight knit community have done so, the have been joined by a lot of newcomers, gardens have started to be cultivated, a real pride is beginning to show!
