2013 A bright future for Scotswood…

The exciting transformation of Newcastle’s West End begins on the banks of the famous River Tyne.

The Rise is the first phase of a £265 million regeneration project which will deliver 1,800 modern homes, while creating jobs and training opportunities for hundreds of local people.

The 60 hectare site will feature its own community energy centre and carefully designed, green public spaces to support the development of a truly green and sustainable community.

Behind the North East’s largest housing led regeneration is New Tyne West Development Company, a public-private partnership comprising Newcastle City Council and developers Barratt Homes and Keepmoat.
