Project Description

Town Centre Regeneration

Value

£150m

Trinity Square, Gateshead

Trinity Square in Gateshead is one of the most significant regeneration schemes in Tyneside and has been successfully developed. This mixed-use scheme provides over 100,000 sqm of floor space for retail, financial and professional services, restaurants and cafes, pubs, hot food takeaways, a supermarket, offices, student accommodation, cinema, gym, PCT, car parking and access, public realm and landscaping.

DPP has been involved in the regeneration of the town centre since 2004 and achieved planning permission for a new Primary Care Trust (PCT) Unit at Trinity Square after successfully achieving planning permission for the regeneration of the town centre.

We provided extensive planning advice to support the scheme’s planning application both before and after submission, and since approval of the PCT application, have continued to provide planning advice to Spenhill and successfully gained planning permission for other supporting town centre uses at Trinity Square.

  • DPP has provided advice on complicated, challenging and technically demanding projects. They work hard to forge relationships with large project teams, the relevant councils and their advisors. DPP understands the key issues on projects and with this enables them to provide sound and clear planning advice in an efficient manner. I would definitely not hesitate to work with them again.
