A new development at Sunderland's seafront has been given the green light by planners.
STACK Seaburn is set to be built by Danieli Holdings and this will be the firm's second container village in the North East, following the setup in Newcastle city centre.
The company has said this development will create "a unique space for enhanced lifestyle experiences with a focus on community wellbeing, socialising, events and a mix of independent street food and casual dining options".
It will feature music, sport, games, events and regular pop ups and also aims to make the most of being based on the seafront.
STACK Seaburn will be built from shipping containers that are assembled to make an enclosed village and will stand on disused land opposite the seafront promenade.
Neill Winch, chief executive of Danieli Holdings, said:
Councillor Michael Mordey, deputy leader of Sunderland City Council, said:
The development is due to open next year.
