FaulknerBrowns submits 1,500-home Newcastle ‘urban village’

  • Comment

FaulknerBrowns Architects’ masterplan for a 1,500-home ‘urban village’ in Newcastle has been submitted to planners

The practice drew up proposals for the £250 million Quayside West development on behalf of developer Newby.

The outline planning application submitted to Newcastle City Council covers a former industrial site on the banks of the River Tyne that has been vacant for more than 15 years.

As well as the homes, the FaulknerBrowns proposals include a hotel and up to 10,605m2 of commercial, community and leisure space.

An east-west spine road would be created through the site to provide vehicle, cycle and pedestrian access. The scheme would also include public open spaces, viewpoints and walkways.

The practice said the development would form a major part of the council’s Forth Yards Opportunity Site and spark further regeneration.

FaulknerBrowns partner Ben Sykes said: ‘With these proposals, we are delighted to be leading the regeneration of an area of the city that has been underutilised for many years. Our plans exploit the site’s enormous potential to become an attractive, sustainable community for residents and a vibrant destination for visitors.’

Newby director Nick Moody added: ‘Our development team has worked hard to devise proposals which will make Quayside West an attractive place to live, work and visit.’
