Consult North is celebrating its involvement in several significant regeneration schemes across the North East and Cumbria.

Consult North is celebrating its involvement in several significant regeneration schemes across the North East and Cumbria.


Consult North founder and managing director, Javaad Khalil, has been appointed to oversee the construction of the projects which include the multimillion pound housing and hospitality development, the £4.5m regeneration of South Beach Blyth, the creation of the region’s only ‘yacht shop’ by West Nautical in Jesmond and millions of pounds worth of redevelopment across several of The
Inn Collection Group sites.


Javaad, who was recently named a national award winner at the RICS MATRICS Young Surveyor of the Year ceremony in London, said: “There is an amazing amount of development and regeneration taking place across the North East and Lake District. It’s exciting to see so many projects gathering pace and our built environment evolving to provide new opportunities for local people to work, socialise and live.

“I am proud to be part of a region which is home to so many businesses, organisations and key influential people who are dedicated to driving forward improvements in our built environment. To be involved in a range of such significant developments is fantastic and is a testament to Consult North and our professional reputation in the region.”


Consult North has also been appointed to the South Beach Blyth project which has attracted significant interest from the public and media. The first phase is part of ambitious plans by developers Blagdon Estate to transform the existing derelict buildings and land on the Links Road into a new 3,750-sq ft Co-op convenience store with a further six smaller units ranging from 1,000-sq ft to 3,350-sq ft available to lease.


Plans for the first-floor accommodation, which has views across towards South Beach, will also create more than 4,000-sq ft of space to accommodate a new health and fitness gym, studio or restaurant.

Consult North was appointed by Blagdon Estate to manage the project in the wake of substantial residential development in the South Blyth area, which has seen 600 new homes built over the past 10 years. Plans for the second phase of development, which includes a further two acres of adjoining land next to the South Beach car park and national cycle route, are already underway with proposals likely to be brought forward during the course of 2022. Following the three latest lettings, more than 7,400 sq.ft. of ground floor space within the 16,000 sq,ft. development has been snapped up, six months ahead of the scheduled completion date in October.


Javaad commented: “The South Beach Blyth development will result in hundreds of jobs for local people throughout the build and redevelopment, further resulting in opportunities for business owners, operators and careers for many during development and on completion. The direct, indirect and induced economic impact on these developments are significant and will provide well-paid and secure jobs for many for years to come.”


Consult North have also worked across several developments with pubs with rooms operator, The Inn Collection Group. Javaad supported the firm in the redevelopment of venues the Black Swan, Helmsley, The Pheasant Inn, Bassenthwaite and the Northallerton Inn. The operator recently hit the news for its sale to The Harris Family Trusts together with Kings Park Capital in a deal believed to be in excess of £300m. In another unique project Consult North has been appointed to project manage the fit out of the new West Nautical shop on Osbourne Road in Jesmond. Its new base will provide a shop-front for superyacht sales and charter services, as well as providing a new offices for its growing team. The shop will be the only one of its kind in the North East.
