Forth Yards

A major gateway to the city

Forth Yards is a 51-acre regeneration area occupying a commanding position along the Western edge of the city centre, with the River Tyne as its southern boundary and the Redheugh Bridge/St James’ Boulevard as its north-south spine.

A major gateway into the city by road, rail and metro, Forth Yards has the potential to transform the urban landscape of Newcastle and connect west end communities and neighbourhoods with the city centre.

At 20 hectares, Forth Yards is Newcastle’s last major underdeveloped water frontage brownfield site area and boasts an array of industrial archaeological heritage and historic railway infrastructure.

Plans are currently being brought forward to deliver a number of significant residential-led schemes across Forth Yards, with Newcastle City Council working together with the site owners, Homes England and North of Tyne Combined Authority to enable the comprehensive development of a well-connected, mixed use and sustainable new place that integrates well into the existing fabric and communities of the city.
