Newcastle’s concerted effort to propel socio-economic progress through urban regeneration has been very successful.

It has seen extremely effective heritage led regeneration alongside more comprehensive renewal. Following decline through the 70s and 80s, Newcastle is now the social and economic driver at the heart of the North-East.
