Planning History - Seabridge Hall was converted to six apartments in the 1960s. Information provided by the client and Newcastle Borough Council planning department shows that various applications have been submitted over the last ten years. In 2002, there was a renewal of planning permission 99/00176/OUT for the erection of three dwellings within the grounds of Seabridge Hall. Reserved matters for this application were permitted in 2005; however, following an issue with access from Fermain Close, a revised application was submitted in 2008 with a revised scheme incorporating access from Seabridge Lane and through the main driveway.

In 2007, an application was submitted and approved for the demolition of the existing garages and the erection of new garages with alterations to access. This application (06/1702/FUL) was then extended in 2010. The application for the removal of the existing garages was implemented to provide access to the proposed development of the three dwellings to the lower part of the site as the access goes through the site of the existing garage block.
