Development Potential

England's busiest station (apart from those serving airports) had 4,170,558 passenger movements in the period 2019-2020. The station with the least was 68. Haydon Bridge station had 46,438 passengers enter or exit it during this period. That's roughly 128 people per day.

For a station with this number of passengers passing through it each year a density of 20 homes per hectare is reasonable, based on its proximity to major population centres and existing infrastructure.

Haydon Bridge is located within the North East railway region. The potential area for development around the station (excluding existing buildings, national parks, flood zones, public green space, protected habitats, areas of outstanding natural beauty, world heritage sites and surface water) is approximately 64.34ha.

Assuming an appropriate (but not prevailing) development density of 20 dwellings per hectare, this area has a development capacity of around 1,287 homes.

The station sits within Northumberland planning authority, which in 2021 achieved a Housing Delivery Test Score of 280%, having delivered 4,874 homes from a target of 1,738. There are no consequences for the planning authority as a result.

The total capacity of all Northumberland's stations is 21,214 homes. That's 1,221% of its total 2021 Housing Delivery Test requirement.

Taking green belt into account, the capacity of Northumberland's stations is 13,068 homes without building on protected land. That's 752% of its total 2021 Housing Delivery Test requirement.
