The Benwell Scotswood Area Action Plan (BSAAP) is a Development Plan Document. The Plan was found sound by an independent Inspector in a report received by us in July 2009 and was adopted by the Council on the 4th November 2009.

The Plan covers an area in the inner west of Newcastle, generally bounded by the A1 Western Bypass, West Road, the eastern edge of Benwell and the River Tyne. It also includes some land north of West Road and Westgate Road, including the Newcastle General Hospital site.

Following the adoption of the CSUCP some of the policies in BSAAP have been superseded and deleted following a review (PDF, 1021KB). The Newcastle Policies Map (PDF, 24.49MB) illustrates these policies alongside the CSUCP allocations. The Council have prepared a Development Plan document (PDF, 375KB) which contains all of the Policies in Newcastle’s Local Plan.
