Please help us to make our vision a reality
Sign our PETITION at the following link:
This petition is to give a voice to the many people that support the development of a CYCLE HUB on the Spanish Battery Tynemouth. We intend to provide a first-class facility and need your support to promote the success of this development.
Our proposed development really will have little effect on the headland from the majority of the Battery. Certainly from the North, East and West you will be unable to see the building. The only open aspect will be to the South overlooking the River Tyne. One thing to note is that we have taken environmental concerns into account and have pushed hard to maintain as much greenery as possible. Replacing a disused private garden with a manicured lawn open to the public as well as incorporating a living wall structure on the southern aspect and a planting scheme designed to increase biodiversity.
Have a look below to see if you can spot the difference!!!
Dear Friends of the CYCLE HUB,
Firstly, we would like to pass on thanks for supporting our petition (if you have not already done so please see the link below), we truly appreciate the fact that you are willing to make your voice heard.
The exciting news is that we have completed our planning application (which has been validated by the planning department); all details are available to see at the following link on North Tyneside Councils Planning Portal.
Our planning application reference: 17/00953/FUL
This has been a 12 month journey to prepare and fine tune our designs as well as mitigating concern and openly communicating our intentions to the public.
We ask if you have a spare moment to continue your support for this exciting new community focussed development. This is the first stage of making the project a reality and we are glad to have you all on board.
Please feel free to share this link with likeminded people; so often we see that the loudest voice is that of objection. By supporting our application on the planning portal and leaving positive comments you will be doing us a huge service that will ensure your voice is heard by the planning department itself.
The application closes on the 03rd Aug 2017 so we don't have long to accumulate as many positive comments as possible. We would hope to have a decision by 24th Aug 2017, if you need any further information feel free to email us at
All the very best,
