Gateshead Placemaking SPD


The purpose of the Gateshead Placemaking SPD is to set out, with reference to saved UDP policies (and the emerging Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan), more detailed planning policy guidance on the principles of good design for all types of development within Gateshead, and to explain how Local Plan policies will be applied in the context of recent guidance and requirements.

The SPD provides practical guidance on the opportunities for incorporating public art as part of development proposals and reflects the Council's aspiration to reinforce the concept of 'Creative Gateshead' as outlined in Vision 2030. This refers to how creative experiences and opportunities can improve the quality of life as well as the look and feel of the borough
