Christon Park phase I and II - street view

Members of the public are being asked to provide their support for a high quality housing scheme proposed for a 3.3 acre brownfield site in the heart of Gosforth, which would see the area transformed into a small housing estate, ideal for families and close to a range of schools and amenities. 


The scheme which would be known as Christon Park, comprises 51 high-quality, low-density, four-bed family homes on the site that is best known as the location of the original Greggs' bakeries and within walking distance of Gosforth High Street and supporting amenities.

Christon Park has been architecturally designed around a grand crescent and features wildlife corridors and communal "pocket parks" offering a variety of functions from sports activity to a community allotment.  The semi-detached and terraced houses each have large private gardens and come with generous parking allocations and some private garages.

Great emphasis has been placed on enhancing biodiversity through wildlife corridors, wildflower planting, swift boxes and additional tree planting. 


Benefits from the development include –


  • Provision of family homes in a desirable and popular suburb of Newcastle upon Tyne.
  • Significant trade benefits to local businesses.
  • Appropriate development use of underused brownfield land and protection of green belt space.
  • Opportunity to enhance biodiversity through the addition of new green infrastructure.
  • Hundreds of construction jobs during development.
  • Significant additional council tax revenues.
  • Significant Section 106 contributions towards shared services and area improvements.
  • Boost in local economy relating to first occupation expenditure – enabling people to make a house ‘feel like a home’.
  • Encourage walking, jogging and cycling through sustainable pedestrian and cycle routes.


You can add a message of support to Council’s Planning Portal website here
