Lodging plans filed for the former site of the Ryhope pub the Salutation Inn
Sunderland City Council’s Planning Department received an application for land on the corner of The Village and Ryhope Road, near The Albion pub, earlier this year.
This request for authorization for two three-bedroom semi-detached houses and a four-bedroom detached house, including parking.
One of the properties would be built on the site of the former Salutation Inn pub, with the other two houses to the north, next to Cliff View.

Planning documents indicate that the houses would be compatible with existing adjacent dwellings in terms of scale and aim to retain the character of the area.
This includes incorporating features from historic housing, as well as features such as bay windows and fireplaces and pedestrian access to a new level.
A heritage statement, prepared on behalf of the applicant and submitted with the plans, outlines the benefits of the proposed housing program.
This includes regenerating a vacant site within the Ryhope Village Conservation Area and creating a ‘natural link between the village and Cliff Road’.
The heritage statement goes on to say, “While preserving the region’s identity, the development will also bring a modern and forward-looking vision.
“With sustainable design – energy-efficient construction and long-lasting materials – the homes will be fit for the future of Ryhope’s continued development.”
A decision on the housing program is expected later this year.
