RECENT PLANNING APPLICATIONS DISCUSSED BY THE TYNESIDE COMMITTEE:

48 Sandhill, Quayside ~ Comments sent to Newcastle City Council; Opposed to pavement cafe and shopfront could be more sympathetic.

Pendower Hall ~ Acceptable proposal.

Eagle Star House Gosforth ~ Comments sent to Newcastle City Council; overall we welcome the conversion but feel the design, colours and materials chosen do not reflect the character of the surrounding area.

Major Development of Land at former Calder's site, Redheugh Bridge Road ~ Comments sent to Newcastle City Council; design proposal 'blocky', lacks humanity, uncoordinated and unimaginative. Concern about lack of provision of public transport.

Lower Steenbergs Yard Ouseburn ~ Outline proposal supported.

Upper Norfolk Street North Shields ~ Comments sent to North Tyneside Council; Size, number and location of fascia boards inappropriate.

EMPATHY ARCHITECTURE

We will be contacting the 'Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission', as we also want to see better design.

We recently wrote to a number of local and national organisations, including RIBA, Newcastle City Council, the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) with our thoughts on what our Tyneside Committee has dubbed 'Empathy Architecture'. Read it below 👇
