What's in the plan
North Tyneside Council has always been about ambition. Our plans for North Shields are no different.
Through a series of bold proposals we aim to transform the town centre and Fish Quay into an environment where people choose to live, work and spend their leisure time.
- We aim to improve public transport, pedestrian and cycle access between the town and riverside to create a neighbourhood to be proud of.
- And by creating new green spaces and revitalising Northumberland Square we will make the town an attractive place to spend time.
- We will create opportunities for a mix of new housing to make a community that sustains North Shields for decades to come.
This is all part of our Ambition for North Tyneside which looks at how we will transform all parts of the borough.
Our main projects are:
