The Neon Social Club, on Nairn Street, in the town’s Scotch Estate, was demolished in August 2019.
Businessman Tony Singh, who runs Premier Leisure Company and owns the site and several pubs across South Tyneside, has been given planning permission to redevelop the land.
He has been given approval to build 12 two- and three-bedroom properties on the plot.

The former Whitburn Lodge pub, Mill Lane, Whitburn.
It closed around 2013 and has fallen into a fall into a state of wrack and ruin.
Its owners had hoped to turn it into a wedding and events venue but were unable to push forward with the proposals.
Since then village campaign group Whitburn Forum has been pushing for residents to have a greater say on its future.
