Newcastle Great Park – 2013 Updates

Let’s rewind back to 2013 and see how this huge housing estate has evolved over the years. From the building of the local community centre through to the start of Cell C, the continuation of Cell F and the earliest progress on the town centre.

  • Open space footpaths near Cell G under construction

Landscaping & Public Spaces

Most of Great Park is privately owned and maintained – i.e. it’s not council land and a service charge covers maintenance of the substantial green areas and flood protection systems.
