Newcastle-under-Lyme development set to move foward

31st May 2023 | Jack Oliver

Local Newcastle-under-Lyme councillors could approve a number of measures to give a multimillion pound regeneration development the go-ahead.

The project would see the redevelopment of York Place and the creation of public space, shops, a multi-storey car park, and offices.

Later developments could also see the construction of a 100-bed hotel.

The proposed developments jointly form a larger £30m regeneration of the Ryecroft area, which also includes an Aspire development.

A report which is set to be delivered before the Council seeks authorisation to demolish the existing York Place building and make space for two shop and office buildings, opening public space between Ironmarket and Merrial Street.

Simon Tagg, leader of Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council, said: “Supporting the long-term vitality of Newcastle town centre is a permanent priority and the bringing together of these diverse projects on two adjoining sites will increase footfall and boost local shops, restaurants and businesses.”

In 2020, Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council received £11m from the Government’s ‘Future High Street’ fund, with £3.5m being secured for the car park development and £3m being allocated for York Place.
