  • Members of the public are invited to comment on a planning framework set to transform Gateshead Quays
  • It will run from 9 September to 8 October 2019
  • Emerging proposals could deliver a new 12,500 seat arena, hotels, office and leisure space and significantly improve the connection between the Quayside and Gateshead town centre.

Gateshead Council is consulting on a planning framework to inform the development of Gateshead Quays.

It's an opportunity for the local community to see the proposals for several developments, including an arena, regional conference centre, offices, hotels, bars, restaurants and improved public areas.  

The area has seen major improvements over the years with the addition of the iconic Sage Gateshead and Gateshead Millennium Bridge. The restoration of a former flour mill into the region's much-loved BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and more recently the award winning By the River Brew Co. 

Cllr Martin Gannon, Leader of Gateshead council said: "We're passionate about the part we are playing in Gateshead's transformation and we want residents to play their part too. Our latest plans to extend the already visible regeneration on the south banks of the River Tyne includes a £260million events destination complete with 12,500 seat arena, conference and exhibition centre, new homes, hotels and office accommodation, beautiful green spaces and improved links through to Gateshead town centre. We're committed to making Gateshead a place where people want to work, visit and live."

You can view the draft development framework online or during office hours at Gateshead Civic Centre and Gateshead Central Library. The council will be taking questions live on Twitter on Tuesday 17 September from 4-5.30pm and is hosting a drop-in event on Thursday 26 September from 3-7pm at St Mary's Heritage Centre.
