Newcastle City Council

Newcastle is a great city, one that never stands still. A city that makes history and shapes the future, a place of bright sparks and big ideas.

In just over 10 years from now, we plan to deliver 14,000 new jobs, 19,000 new homes and to have radically reinvented our transport system in the city centre and beyond and, with an investment pipeline worth £1.5 billion, there are a raft of projects under development that will continue this transformation. 

Newcastle is at the heart of a region of fast growth, innovation and energy.  It’s a place that makes history and shapes the future with most of our knowledge led industry sectors outpacing other UK regions for growth; in addition we’ve been named a leading smart city and ranked as a top 10 tech hub.   

Key investment & development opportunities include three in the accelerated development zone:

  • Newcastle Science Central, a  9.7ha city centre innovation and science hub;
  • Stephenson Quarter, a 4ha site in the historic quarter of Newcastle with an exciting mix of Grade II listed buildings and new contemporary architecture
  • East Pilgrim Street, spanning 7.9ha of prime retail and leisure core

And two enterprise zone sites:

  • Newcastle International Airport Business Park, 41ha of land adjacent to the Airport and providing logistics opportunities with airside access
  • North Bank of the Tyne, central to the offshore and subsea sectors with some of the best infrastructure in Europe
