On Monday July 17th, the Council’s Parks Transformation Team presented their findings to the City Council’s Cabinet about the potential for a new charitable trust to manage the City’s parks, neighbourhood parks, allotments and open spaces. 

The findings included the proposed business model, and the public response arising from the recent public consultation campaign on the future of Newcastle parks, allotments and open spaces. 

Cabinet voted to move forward with further work on  the charitable trust proposal. The full proposal will be worked up to full business case and implementation plan for final Cabinet decision in October.
