Newcastle Great Park: Cell A

Our well established and ongoing relationship the Newcastle Great Park Consortium has seen TPS provide Transport Planning advice over many years.

Newcastle Great Park is one of the largest mixed-use developments in the North East of England with more than 5,000 homes proposed, in addition to a range of high quality office accommodation, a new town centre, a new first school and many community facilities.  Since its inception in 1999, the site has seen some 2,000 homes already built along with significant new road infrastructure provided as well as significant, popular and well-established network of public transport provisions.

More recently, our role has seen the design of the multi-million-pound extension to the existing spine road through Newcastle Great Park, including three new roundabout junctions and a signalised junction, and the preparation of the Transport Assessment for the reserved matters planning application for residential development at Cell D and the completion of the spine road.

Allied to this, having already considered the futureproofing of the spine road within the Cell D Transport Assessment, TPS has prepared the Transport Assessment to accompany the planning application for residential and education development in Cell A.  The proposals will provide a further 1,200 new homes and three schools with a total roll number of more than 2,000 pupils.  This report has considered the impact of the proposals on the road network internal to the Great Park, on the local road network external to the Great Park and on the strategic road network, particularly the A1(M).

Other Transport Statements and Travel Plans prepared for the Great Park accompanied planning applications for town centre developments, reserved matters applications for other residential elements and a change of use application.  We are very pleased to be retained to provide the Consortium with continued technical advice in respect of its development aspirations and other external factors.
