Gateshead Regeneration Partnership

The £350 million Gateshead Regeneration Partnership is one of the UK’s largest housing-led regeneration programmes.

More than 2400 homes will be built over the next two decades by the partnership between Vistry Partnerships, Home Group and Gateshead Council.

The initiative includes the regeneration of 19 separate sites, building homes for private sale, and shared ownership and affordable rent alongside community facilities and public spaces. The aim is to create new neighbourhoods and communities across the region.

A total 309 homes at Birtley, Deckham and Bensham have already been delivered and there will also be new developments at Kelvin Grove (off Saltwell Road), the former Rowlands Gill primary school, and Whitehills Drive (Windy Nook), behind the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The first two phases have seen 25% of the sub-contracting and supply work awarded to Gateshead based businesses.  In addition, a quarter of all the new jobs created by the scheme are filled by local people and it has also created new apprenticeships.

So far, 11 previously unemployed people have been taken on, three apprentices employed and £1.5 million spent with local suppliers.

This programme is not just about the bricks and mortar. We will continue to work closely with existing and newly emerging communities to help build a sustainable long-term legacy of employment, local economic activity and cultural opportunities that will reinvigorate neighbourhoods and help to reverse the trend of people moving away from the borough.
