Newcastle City Council Public Health object to the proposal

“Public Health at Newcastle City Council objects to the proposed
establishment of a drive-through fast food facility on the site of the old police station on West Road as it is at odds with section CS14 of the Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan for Gateshead and
Newcastle upon Tyne”

“At some point, we need to draw a line – not specifically in relation to Burger King, but in relation to the broader over-provision of unhealthy food options. Given the concomitant issues of pollution
and congestion in this instance, and notwithstanding the question of relative proximity to schools, this proposal seems a good point at which to draw that line.”
