The main building will have 40 sheltered living apartments with communal living facilities. There will also be 26 bungalows alongside.

Client is social housing provider Bernicia, which is investing £13m to regenerate this area of Ashington.

Ashington Hospital dates back to 1913 but closed after Wansbeck General Hospital opened in the 1990s.
