New Tyne Crossing Landscape Masterplan

We want to know what you think about these ideas for land use.


Please bear in mind that we may receive a number of suggestions that conflict with each other. We also have to consider legal, technical and other practical constraints which may mean that your ideas can’t be developed. We hope this won’t put you off sharing your views, and we look forward to hearing them.


Which parts of the landscape masterplan do you like best?


Are there any parts of the masterplan that you don’t like?


Do you think the masterplan will improve the use of land in this area for local people? How do you think the different spaces will be used by the public?


In the south (Jarrow) do you like the idea of an outdoor entertainment venue, an amphitheatre, being sited by the river, or would you prefer the space to be smaller and more intimate, but less suitable for performances?


In the south (Jarrow) do you think children’s play areas should be located closer to the river (near Ferry Street) or closer to the south junction (near Stothard Street)?


In the north (East Howdon) do you think the land should be built up in such a way that it could support public art in the future?


Is there anything else that you think should be included or that should be changed?


Do you have any other comments or suggestions?
