This development framework promotes comprehensive development of the Science Central Key Site as designated in the Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan for Gateshead and Newcastle, 2010-2030. It provides further detail that supports Policy C2, Science Central Key site.

The framework sets out a vision for the development, outlining the key approach for transportation, land use, recreation, housing and design and identifies the key infrastructure required to support existing and future communities. 

It sets the principles for development for the sites and will be a material consideration in the determination of any future applications for the area it covers.
