Residents in Tynemouth are opposing plans to build 69 luxury houses, flats and apartments next to the village’s historic metro station.
People living nearby have put forward 12 objections to the proposals from Northumberland-based company Station Development for aesthetic reasons.
Commuter Jess Hawkins said: “If it was to compromise [the station] in any way I’d be against it. If it’s done sympathetically to the surroundings, then we do need housing.”
Station Development have not yet been available to comment on the plans, which have been under development for two years.
