A shared ambition to transform Northumberland Street

On 21 September 2016 Newcastle City Council and partners NE1 Ltd launched a shared ambition to transform Northumberland Street into a world-class retail and leisure destination to rival that of other major European regional cities.

Around 50 local businesses attended the inaugural Northumberland Street Stakeholder Briefing to hear about our collaborative approach to local retailers, traders, landlords, property agents, banks and building societies, setting out how the city can build on improvements already taking place, to extend Newcastle’s retail and cultural offer.


A copy of the presentation made at the launch event is available to download here.

Next steps

We hope to engage with businesses and residents to help shape the programme as we move forward.

Our next steps are to commission retail and design advisers - they will engage with businesses over the coming months as they begin to address the transformation opportunities for Northumberland Street and its adjoining streets. We will feedback to you early in 2017 when the advisers have completed their work.

In the meantime, should you have any queries about our ongoing programme of work, please contact our Senior Project Manager, Farah Hussain – email: farah.hussain@newcastle.gov.uk
