Newchapel residents opposing plans to build houses on the site of the former Newchapel Working Mans Club look certain to lose their battle. Newcastle Borough Council planning officers have recommended that the plans be approved when Newcastle Borough Council meet next week.
The officers appear to believe that residential development would be in keeping with the local area and is something which would see the site brought back into use. These plans appear to be controversial with some residents who are upset and the prospect of another housing development in the local area.
Many Newchapel residents will be awaiting the decision from Newcastle Borough Council next week.
