PfP igloo is a major developer in the Ouseburn area. In 2012, the government housing agency Homes England and Newcastle City Council entered into an agreement for PfP igloo to develop a number of ex-industrial sites in the Ouseburn for residential-led regeneration.

Between 2012 and 2013, PfP igloo held a series of consultations to discuss the potential of these future developments on these site. See the summary of community feedback.

Malmo & Spillers Quay 

January 2022 update

The Malmo and Spillers Quay developments have recently been submitted to the Planning Portal.

The application for planning permission is what is known as a hybrid application. In this case full planning permission is being sought for the Malmo Quay proposals whereas outline only is being sought for Spillers Quay. The application as a whole though may either be approved or rejected. It is not possible to grant planning approval for one component of a hybrid application.

It is also worth noting that while only outline planning permission is being sought for Spillers Quay, an approved application will fix some parameters of that development, namely the height and massing of the proposed buildings, and the access routes, public and private spaces documented on the plan. It is therefore equally important that the proposals are considered for Spillers Quay too.

Please join us for a public forum to explore the proposed development in detail - Tuesday 8th February, 5pm at The Cycle Hub. We will gather the views shared during this event and submit a statement on behalf of the Ouseburn Trust's Planning and Development Sub-Group based on your feedback. 

If you are unable to attend the event but would like your comments to be included in our statement, please email [email protected] 

You can submit your comments directly to the Planning Department until 17th February, or contribute to our Planning & Development group's statement during our event.
