There are two ways that you can submit an objection: via email or via the council’s website. Some people have found the council’s planning website difficult to use so you may find it easier to submit your objection by email. Details for both are below.

The deadline for objections is Monday 17 August 2020.

View the applications

There are two separate planning applications that relate to different aspects of the development. You can view both on Newcastle City Council’s planning portal.

If you scroll right to the bottom you can view the objections from other residents.

Police Station (West) – Burger King – Ref: 2020/0933/01/DET:

Police Station (East) – Shops and Flats – Ref: 2020/0934/01/DET:

Object via email

The easiest way to submit an objection is via email.

Send your objection to: planning.control@newcastle.gov.uk

Make sure you include the reference number for the application.

  • Burger King: 2020/0933/01/DET
  • Shops and Flats: 2020/0934/01/DET

You also need to include your address to have the objection registered.

It’s best if you write the objection in your own words, but you can take a look at the issues that residents have raised for ideas:
