Maximising investment opportunities

   Councils  

Newcastle City Council

Newcastle City Council has turned major investment opportunities into funding streams for local services. The council is redeveloping its Civic Centre to create a hub for public sector bodies that improves access to services for residents. This includes a new regional family court and tribunal centre, and office space for a range of public sector partners such as ACAS and the NHS. This innovative use of the Council estate is also generating rental incomes that are being used to maintain services for vulnerable residents in the face of Government cuts.
