Newcastle Great Park commenced on site in 2002 and the proposals have been subject to comprehensive statutory consultation and examination as part of the planning process. The most recent consultation and examination took place during summer 2014, as part of the Newcastle City Council and Gateshead Council’s joint Core Strategy that proposed changes to land allocations on Newcastle Great Park. Work is continuing in line with existing planning permissions, legal agreements and the now changes that form part of the Core Strategy.

The Consortium are working with Newcastle City Council to prepare and confirm how future development proposals will be communicated to residents, commercial operators and other stakeholders. The outcomes of this work will be made available in the future. As development proposals come forward, they will be made available via this website and events and consultation processes will be promoted and reported through the site.

The NGP Consortium are in contact with residents groups and commercial operators but we will also be undertaking positive pubic engagement on a range of projects and issues some live now and some proposed in the future.

  • Cell D and Spine Road Design

    The Consortium are in pre-application discussions with Newcastle City Council regarding Cell D and the Spine Road. This is the final residential cell that forms part of the current outline planning permission and as a result already has planning permission. The details will be subject to what is known as a ‘reserved matters planning application’. Included within this application will be the details of the spine road that will link Kingston Park Road and the existing spine road at the top of Waggonway drive adjacent to Sage.

    You can view more details on both the Cell D proposals and the Spine Road design in the attachments.

  • Cell C Phase IV Planning Application

    Persimmon Homes are proposing a new residential development of approximately 130 dwellings, which forms the last parcel of developable land within Cell C, Newcastle Great Park.

    The proposed development site has historic planning consent for commercial development, however, due to decline in demand and a need for housing, Persimmon are now progressing the site for residential development.
    The site allows for a continuation of build within Cell C and a combination of the existing design principles within the area.

    If you have any queries on the development, please contact samuel.kenny@persimmonhomes.com
