Written by Hitmix News Team on 10 June 2021
Newcastle is getting nearly 24 million pounds from the Towns Fund for a raft of projects including new buses, hundreds of homes in Knutton and Chesterton and a circus arts centre.
There’ll also be a crossing on Barracks Road, a new foot bridge and improved cycle access routes into the town centre.
Other projects include a new ‘Digital Society Centre’, helping residents improve their IT skills as well as providing office space for growing local businesses and the redevelopment of the former Zanzibar nightclub site.
