Since development started in 2001, Newcastle Great Park is developing into a sustainable community and one of the most desirable places to live in the Northeast. Physical and social infrastructure has been delivered, serving over 1500 high quality homes, the headquarters of the software company the SAGE group with capacity for 1500 staff, a range of other high quality office accommodation, a new first school and a new community centre with associated sports and playing pitches. Most significantly over half of the 1200 acres is being been landscaped and has delivered significant, landscape, drainage, biodiversity and public access improvements.
The development is served by excellent transport connections with a range of dedicated public transport options including a branded bus service and park and ride facility.
Uniquely positioned in a rural setting, but 3 miles from Newcastle City Centre, the site is one of the most accessible locations in the Northeast.
Newcastle Great Park has been one of the driving forces in attracting and retaining a working population for the Northeast in the Regions major conurbation.
The purpose of this website is to bring together information for all who live, work, play and relax in the sustainable community that exists, but also a valuable source of information for potential purchasers, investors or visitors.
The driving force behind Newcastle Great Park is the NGP Consortium, a partnership between Persimmon Homes plc and Taylor Wimpey Developments, with the support of Newcastle City Council.
