One of the main "plans" wthin the group of Central Area Plans in the 1960s, was The Leisure Plan. Within that, the principal 'grand plan' involved finding enhanced uses for our main City Centre Park / Open Space - The Town Moor . . .

Plans that never happened, or only partially happened.


Part 8 - The Eldon Square Scheme : The Percy Street / Blackett Street Comprehensive Development Area (CDA).


There are plenty of plans, diagrams and (eventually) an 'end product' to illustrate the 1970s Eldon Square Plans, that we are now living with.

These are different, they are the UNREALISED 1960s Plans . . .

The Cityscape ideas from the 1980s

Part 1 - Explanation and the background to the ideas proposed



CITYSCAPE has been mentioned (in passing) on this forum in the past, but if ever there was a subject that was suitable for this "Newcastle as it might have been" thread, then the Cityscape ideas and proposals from 1986, are it!

OK, they were never firm plans or planning applications (that didn't come to fruition) they were simply "ideas", but they certainly paint a picture of how Newcastle might have been, if funding had been available. Indeed in one or two of the ideas it might be possible to detect certain origins of what eventually DID happen in some areas.

Before we actually get into the 'as it might have been' ideas, this first part actually discusses the origins of the project and shows the aspects and problems perceived to exist in the City Centre of the 1980s, that the Cityscape ideas were intended to solve . . .





















The next and subsequent parts in this series about Cityscape, will look at the various specific ideas (some very innovative!) for individual areas of the City Centre.

The Cityscape ideas from the 1980s

Part 2 - John Dobson Street, and around the Laing Art Gallery.


In Part 1, the CITYSCAPE project was introduced in general, but here in Part 2 is the first specific area of the City Centre that received their attention. This part covers the full length of John Dobson Street, down to and around the Laing Art Gallery . . .

The Cityscape ideas from the 1980s

Part 5 - The "TNI" 1988 version of Cityscape-Style ideas and suggestions.


In Parts 1 to 4 of this series, the 1986 Cityscape ideas have been shown in detail. Here in 'Part 5' are some VERY similar ideas put forward only two years later (in 1988) by TNI.

TNI ("The Newcastle Initiative") is the organisation that more recently has become NGI ("Newcastle Gateshead Initiative").

Again, as with 'Parts 1 to 4', it is interesting to look at these IDEAS now (with hindsight in 2011) and see what parts of those ideas have actually found themselves being wholly or partly implemented - as well as those that have been completely ignored and forgotten about!!

Here are the TNI ideas, concentrating on slightly different areas of the City Centre to Cityscape, namely, Stowell Street, Theatre Village, Clayton Street and St James Boulevard. These ideas were published in the Evening Chronicle on Tuesday October 11th 1988 . . .

Unbuilt Newcastle: Seven images of plans for the city which never came to pass

Unbuilt Newcastle: Seven images of plans for the city which never came to pass
7 Apr 2016 By David Morton


Tyne Deck, 1969. Double-deck motorway and walkway around Newcastle and a concrete platform across the River Tyne. (Source: Ryder Architecture)

Imagine a very different Newcastle to the one we know today. How about a city with a monorail and a rebuilt St James’ Park? Or a motorway under Northumberland Street? A city centre with double-deck motorway and walkway? Or a new stadium shared by Newcastle United and Sunderland? Or, incredibly, what if Newcastle had been completely demolished and rebuilt in the mid-20th century?

These and other fabulous forgotten plans for the city have been brought to light by Prof Mark Tewdwr-Jones of Newcastle University’s School of Architecture, Planning & Landscape.

Prof Tewdwr-Jones, who is an author, speaker and broadcaster, points out that Newcastle is a city that has undergone almost constant physical change over the decades. He said: “These discarded plans may seem quirky by today’s stands, but Newcastle has long been subject to change. You only have to think back to the massive redevelopment which took place in the 1960s or, before that, in the 1940s. And long before that, the 19th century development of Grainger Town was hugely radical.”

Among the discarded plans uncovered from the archive by the professor are the ‘Tyne Deck’ in 1969: A double-deck motorway and walkway around Newcastle and a concrete platform across the Tyne.

Future of cities: visualising the future of Newcastle

Future of cities: visualising the future of Newcastle

Report and animation looking at scenarios for the future of Newcastle upon Tyne.

The Newcastle City Futures 2065 project looked into the long-term future of cities over the next 50 years using Newcastle upon Tyne as a pilot. This report explores the role of visualisation in the project and explains how the accompanying scenarios animation was created.

Published on 26 Jan 2016

This video created by Dr Emine Mine Thompson, Dr James Charlton, Dr Danilo Di Mascio and Diogo Henriques from Northumbria University, Department of Architecture and Built Environment.

It is created for UK Government Office for Science, Future of Cities Foresight Project. This project looks into the opportunities and challenges that UK cities will be facing over the next 50 years.

One of the many activities from this Foresight Project is “The Newcastle City Futures 2065 Report” developed by Prof M. Tewdwr-Jones and Prof. J Goddard and Dr. Paul Cowie from Newcastle University. This recently published report explores the future of cities over the next 50 years by looking in detail at the prospects for Newcastle as a test bed for this new methodology. Northumbria University’s Virtual Reality and Visualisation Studio is given approval to decipher these different scenarios, from the report, into visualisations. These visualisations will support knowledge exchange and public engagement activities for the Newcastle Futures Project.

Newcastle as a skyscraper city - where would the high rise towers go?

Newcastle as a skyscraper city - where would the high rise towers go?
By Mike Kelly 14 February 2017


Newcastle could become a city of skyscrapers

There’s been talk about Newcastle potentially becoming a city of skyscrapers - but where would they go?

We asked experts to speculate where the huge multi storey blocks could be located. Peter Buchan, senior partner at Ryder Architecture in Newcastle, named two possible sites.

The first was the Calders Yard, next to Redheugh Bridge and near to the Metro Radio Arena. The second is the St James’s car park next to Newcastle United’s stadium, an area where there is already a proposal for a block of student flats.

He said: “The first a gateway into the city. The second the centre of the new quarter developing around the stadium and Science Central. Mr Buchan went on to say the skyscrapers should be clustered together - but away from the historic heart of the city. He said: “I’m supportive in principle. UK cities need to densify to avoid urban sprawl. There should be a clear policy on location. All our cities - including London- have suffered from a lack of such a policy. I favour clustering of towers rather than dotting them around and the logical location is around the St James Boulevard and the Redheugh Bridge head. The historic core of Newcastle should be sacrosanct as a total no go area and development is constrained in the other directions.”

Another possible site is near Swan House roundabout. Last year we revealed plans for a possible ‘Dubai-style’ skyscraper there after developers held informal talks with Newcastle City Council about submitting a planning application to build a 35-storey building there, behind Manors station.

I've been saying for a while now that a few tall buildings (skyscrapers) would be ideal near the arena.
