Gateshead Council

Gateshead Council has a strong reputation, together with a historic track record of achievement, particularly in iconic physical regeneration projects. Many of these are internationally recognised and have put Gateshead on the map, such as Sage Gateshead, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and the Angel of the North.

Gateshead offers easy access to all local, national and international markets; providing links to air, road, rail and sea. With a working age population of 1.4 million within a 10 mile radius, businesses can enjoy a flexible and skilled workforce with competitive employee costs.

Voted as one of the top locations within the UK from which to do business, for its environment and infrastructure, it is easy to see why it has proven to be the location of choice for many investors.

Home to pioneering digital technology companies and industry leaders in advanced manufacturing, Gateshead has a reputation as a centre of excellence for creativity and innovation. With its diverse and growing business base, as well as a supportive environment, it provides the perfect setting from which to establish and grow a business. We continue to build for the future, making Gateshead a hub for future development.
