The Benwell regeneration strategy outlines our plans to revitalise Benwell as a district centre and offer a better quality of life for its residents. The proposed health centre on Caroline Street/ Maria Street will house local GP practices along with ancillary uses by the PCT. Neighbourhood wardens will work with residents and local schools to improve the environment. The High Cross Action Plan is coordinating a programme of external improvements and an initiative to improve communal green spaces. The Condercum Road area will be redeveloped as a mixed-use site to reinforce the district centre and provide a community and commercial hub.
