Supplementary planning documents and masterplans

Live Consultations

** There are no live consultations at this time.



Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) provide greater detail to supplement the policies and proposals of the Local Plan and are a consideration in the determination of planning applications. North Tyneside Council has a series of SPDs, ranging from those specific to a particular topic or to a geographical area.

Masterplans and associated guidance have been produced for Killingworth Moor and Murton Gap Strategic Sites which can also be found on this page.

Killingworth Moor and Murton Gap Masterplans

Killingworth Moor and Murton Gap Masterplans and associated guidance were formally agreed by North Tyneside Council’s Cabinet on the 18th December 2017.  The Masterplans provide a framework for all future development on the sites. The Masterplans have been prepared with engagement with existing communities, residents and businesses affected by proposals for development. The Masterplans are a material consideration in the planning application process. Any planning applications will need to demonstrate that they meet the requirements of the Masterplans.
