  1. Newcastle Metro Area
    Since this particular site looks highly likely to be sold off, I thought it might be pertinent to create a thread specifically about what is quite an iconic building in the centre of our city, and about what may become of it (whether converted into some other use, or torn down as a likely prime...
  2. Newcastle Metro Area
    . This thread is for the discussion of issues relating to the two areas of Newcastle shown in the below MAP. The Woolsington and Dinnington areas of Newcastle, effectively those areas 'surrounding' Newcastle Airport . . . .

    Coatsworth Road to be restored to Victorian splendour: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-13419572
  4. Newcastle Metro Area
    . I couldn't find a logical thread to put this on (which is unusual, as we now seem to have threads that can cover most eventualities on the Newcastle Area Urbanism front) so I have started this new one. This can, if big things DO start happening, end up as the 'Project Thread' for the...
  5. Newcastle Metro Area
    A new day dawns as Ponteland market shifts tack August 19th 2010, The Journal CHANGES are being made to a second Northumberland market, to attract traders and protect its future. A specialist farmers’ market has been held in Ponteland since 2000 to allow local producers to sell food and...
  6. Newcastle Metro Area
    By now (May 2010) all of Newcastle, South Northumberland, North Tyneside and South Tyneside (though NOT so much Gateshead) have their own "Area Developments" threads. One area of North Tyneside though, that does not, is the 'Wallsend area' - immediately as you cross the City Boundary heading...
  7. Newcastle Metro Area
    Don't know if anyone knew but one of the stands at Gateshead International Stadium is having some work done, it looks like they are adding a roof to the stand. It looks as though the frame is up and it looks quite decent, quite a 'wavy' roof instead of just a boring box one.
  8. Newcastle Metro Area
    As part of our remit to cover issues and projects in South Northumberland, I notice that we do not have a thread for Tyne Valley Developments. So, I thought I should start one, as it is about the only part of our patch that we have not got covered now, and it starts with some disappointing...
  9. Newcastle Metro Area
    . This thread has CHANGED its use . . . Originally, as can be seen from 'Post 2' onward, this thread was used for "all the developments" going on at the big three Newcastle Hospitals of 'The RVI', 'Freeman', and 'General'. However, there was such a lot of ongoing development at these three...

  12. Newcastle Metro Area
    By now (January 2010) quite a few areas of Newcastle, South Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside and Gateshead have their own "Area Developments" threads on our Forum. One area of North Tyneside though, that does not seem to have one is the Benton, Forest Hall and Killingworth area...
  13. Newcastle Metro Area
    . There is one 'discrete' area of our City Centre, that I have long felt could well deserve a thread of its own . . . CHINATOWN. OK, some aspects could be covered on the 'retail' or the 'restaurants' threads . . or they may have a "Project Thread" of their own if needed, but I think it is a...
  14. Newcastle Metro Area
    This thread can be used to post small developments in the city centre that aren't big enough to warrant their own thread and might fly 'under the radar' as a result. I'll start off with the refurbishment of Forth House into a Chinese Church. This was a controversial development 7 years ago that...
  15. Newcastle Metro Area
    I have been asked to find out from your marvelous retail packed minds whether you feel a food outlet will perform well in the "new" (post extension completion) Clayton Street? Paninis, baguettes, soups, sandwiches, wraps, jacket spuds, coffees, cakes etc - in a nice setting with nice comfy...
