Behind the scenes, our Planning and Development Sub-Group evaluate and scrutinise upcoming and live property development proposals which affect our area. We want to protect the balance of live, work, and play in the Valley and represent the community's views on how our built environment looks and feels.  

We feel everyone who has an interest in Ouseburn should be able to easily access information about prospective property developments in the area. This page lists active planning applications on the Newcastle City Council Planning Portal that we think could have a significant impact on the Valley, be that positive or negative. Comments can be made through the links but if you'd like to take a more active role in influencing Ouseburn's building schemes, get in touch about joining out Planning and Development sub-group.
