Newcastle has been successful in its bid for 11 million pounds funding from the Future High Streets Fund.
The cash will boost the Council’s ambitious town centre regeneration plans following the submission of a revised scheme in January this year.
It includes the demolition of the former Civic Offices building and the significant redevelopment of the whole Ryecroft site. This will comprise a mix of employment and residential uses, a new multi-storey car park, new public space and better pedestrian and cycle connectivity with the residential areas north of the town centre.
Council leader Simon Tagg, says it’s an amazing vote of confidence in our town by the Government.
