There's a focus on shopping and commercial activity in central Gateshead. The main activity is around West Street, Trinity Square and High Street. All of these are near Gateshead Interchange, which connects us with the rest of the North East.
The new Trinity Square opened in 2013 and provided a significant change to our retail offer. It contains:
- Tesco Extra
- 40 shops
- health centre
- VUE cinema
- office space
- 1,000-bed student accommodation
- a new public square
The Old Town Hall Quarter is a collection of historic buildings and land. It sits between the key regeneration sites Gateshead Centre and Gateshead Quays.
There are development opportunities and council-owned sites around the retail core. These are available along Askew Road, Bewick Way and the High Street.
