Work is due to commence summer 2014 and is expected to take six years to complete.

John Morgan, Morgan Sindall chief executive said: “We have a strong track record in delivering complex, mixed-use regeneration schemes and we are delighted to be working alongside South Tyneside council to revitalise South Shields town centre.

“This important project will see the creation of a vibrant retail and leisure quarter as well as the development of new homes and will unlock new opportunities for residents, businesses and visitors to the area.”
