LOCAL property developer Town End Farm Partnership has submitted a major mixed-use planning application to Sunderland City Council for Wear Point 55.

This exciting hybrid application, which includes both detailed and outline proposals, will see a major manufacturing and commercial site developed on land owned by the partnership to the north of Nissan, adjacent to the A19.
