Here you can find detailed proposals contained within the Jesmond Neighbourhood Plan.
All of the proposals that have been developed in detail are listed below. These are accompanied by technical drawings, which show the exact changes that are proposed for each of the streets being dealt with through Streets for People. These technical drawings are in PDF format and can be downloaded by clicking on the relevant links below.
All of these drawings are proposals, meaning that they are subject to change as a result of the feedback we receive from people across the city. Because of this, they do not necessarily represent the final versions of what will be built in these areas. They are titled as ‘pilot arrangements’ within the drawings themselves in order to reflect this.
This part of the neighbourhood plan proposes changes to Moorfield between Ilford Road and Great North Road (i.e. Gosforth High Street).
This part of the neighbourhood plan proposes creating a continuous pavement on the west side of St George’s Terrace (creating a “blended footway”), and making changes to Osborne Road at the junctions with St George’s Terrace, Tavistock Road and North Jesmond Avenue.
This part of the neighbourhood plan proposes making the section of Forsyth Road, between Brentwood Avenue and Highbury, one way to westbound traffic (i.e. leaving Jesmond, towards Great North Road).
This part of the neighbourhood plan proposes changes to the road and pavement outside of West Jesmond Primary School (Tankerville Terrace) and decluttering the pavement outside of the shops on Brentwood Avenue.
This part of the neighbourhood plan proposes creating cycle lanes on both sides of Osborne Road between Haldane Terrace and Holly Avenue, and changing the section of Haldane Terrace between Osborne Road and Eslington Terrace (the “Haldane Bridge”) to be accessible to cyclists only.
This part of the neighbourhood plan proposes widening the pavements on the Springbank Road Bridge (next to the Blue Bell pub) and giving priority to traffic travelling westbound over the bridge (i.e. from Heaton and Jesmond Dene towards Sandyford). There is no change proposed to bus routes which will continue as the are.
This part of the neighbourhood plan proposes improvements to the path between Selborne Gardens and Greystoke Gardens in Jesmond Vale.
