Max Curtis, Corporate Affairs Manager for Tesco speaking on behalf of Spen Hill says: “the option of a mixed-use development at Trinity Square offers a superb opportunity to bring better facilities to the town centre and to make a significant contribution to the continuing regeneration of Gateshead.
This exhibition will provide local residents with an opportunity to comment on the emerging plans. Views and comments from residents throughout the consultation will be extremely valuable in shaping the proposals and so we would like to encourage as many people as possible to attend the exhibition.”
Leader of Gateshead Council, Councillor Mick Henry, said,
“Local people and businesses that have an interest in the town centre all have their own ideas about what they would like to see developed there. This is an exciting time for Gateshead and all views are welcome so we would encourage people to take this opportunity to see what might be possible in our centre and have their say.”
