Newcastle MP makes formal objection on Gallowgate development that stops St James Park ever expanding

3 years ago

The campaign goes on to try and prevent the Strawberry Place development that will prevent any future expansion of St James Park, plus totally ruin the current city centre skyline.

The NUST (Newcastle United Supporters Trust) have instructed solicitors to object to the scheme on their/our behalf (see below), whilst hundreds of individual Newcastle fans have also objected (see below our easy step by step guide on how to add your objection, which only takes a few minutes) to the scheme and obviously the more of you willing to do the same can only strengthen the case.

Joining those objectors is the Newcastle MP whose constituency includes St James Park / Newcastle United.

Chi Onwurah writing to Newcastle City Centre registering her concerns and objection.

(We have done a short step by step guide detailing how to get to where you need to, so you can object and comment (it is simple and will only take you a few minutes. This probably makes it sound more complicated than it actually is but thought worth detailing step by step just in case…).

A quick step by step guide to objecting:

Click HERE to go to Newcastle City Council planning page.

Then second option down is ‘Search by reference number’, click that and then enter 2019/0879/01/DET to take you direct to the SJP/Gallowgate planning application.

At the top of that page click ‘Register’ and you enter name, address and password, then an email is sent for you to click to confirm you are registered and now able to comment/object.

Log-in using your email and password, then search once again using 2019/0879/01/DET and then click ‘Commenter type’ and choose ‘Member of the public’

Then click ‘Object’ and leave your comment below that, explaining why you don’t want the development to go ahead.
