The North West Growth Area’s central and accessible location within the Greater Newcastle Metropolitan Area provides opportunity to generate significant jobs, housing, and services to the broader region. Its proximity to the rail line and access to the arterial road network provides a solid foundation for a wide range of economic growth opportunities.

It includes brownfield, greenfield, natural and developed land stretching from Cardiff in the east to the M1 Motorway in the west, Speers Point in the south and local government area boundary in the north. It provides areas of high ecological value and significant new opportunities for urban renewal, including for retail, services, affordable housing, advanced manufacturing, office-based jobs, recreation and open space.
