Council celebrates further awards

North Tyneside Council is celebrating after picking up a host of recent awards.

On Friday night (June 14) the Central Lower Promenade scheme won best project in the Innovation category at the annual Constructing Excellence North East Awards.

This was a joint bid with the Hartlepool Headland Project. The judges praised the two councils for working together to share expertise and the same construction solution / procurement model resulting in significant savings and value for money.

At the same awards the Spanish City was highly commended in the Project of the Year category.

Earlier, the council scooped two awards at The Planning Awards 2019 which were held at the RIBA in London on Tuesday June 4.

The Business and Enterprise Team won the national award for Promoting Economic Growth for its support to business start-ups, business growth and inward investment. This is the fourth national or international award the team have won over the last three years.

Spanish City also received a Highly Commended Award in the Best Use of Heritage in Placemaking category. This was the latest award for Spanish City with more opportunities coming up in the next few months.

Elected Mayor Norma Redfearn CBE said: “I am delighted that we have continued to receive yet more awards in the last couple of weeks for our Spanish City and Central Lower Promenade awards.

“It’s fantastic that our Business and Enterprise team have been recognised nationally for the work they do too – this is testament to everything they do to support our local businesses.

“We are all extremely proud and congratulations to everyone involved.”
