Newcastle City Council has announced its plan to build three thousand new homes in the west of the city. Its draft masterplan for the Callerton area has been made available for public view.
The scheme is part of the council-driven plan to construct 21,000 new residences across Newcastle by 2030, which will create around 14,000 new jobs at the same time.
The council has reserved locations throughout the Callerton area for development. It will be working with a consortium of local developers to bring the scheme to fruition.
The goal is to build new and sustainable communities that complement the local area, have their own distinct appearance and identity, integrate easily with the surrounding communities, and make sure that the landscape is a fundamental part of the development.
The history and landscape of Callerton are taken into account in the design proposals, which demonstrate how the development will benefit the local community and the natural environment in the long run. Transport, schools, shops, leisure, and open space are all explored and explained.
