MSGP was adopted on the 1 February 2021.
MSGP forms Part 3 of our Local Plan following the adoption of the Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan for Gateshead and Newcastle [59.93MB] which forms parts 1 and 2. MSGP intends to:
detailed policies to both assist applicants, and inform decisions made on planning applications
allocations land for particular types of development
designations of land on the basis of its use or quality, including conservation areas, retail centres and local wildlife sites, for example
identification of areas where there may be limitations on development.
The policies and allocated sites set out in MSGP will support the implementation of strategic priorities set out in the Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan. MSGP supersedes the remaining saved policies from the Unitary Development Plan.
