Safe Driving Notice

This is US!!  We are causing a problem for each other on the Great Park by driving too fast within the estate. It is not a new problem – a number of residents have been raising concerns about it for years, and there have been several near misses on crossings as well as pet fatalities. It is only a matter of time before a pedestrian is hit. Think how you would feel if you were driving.

The new consortium management are doing their part. As land owners it is their responsibility to allow the police to enforce road safety, and they have now done this – please see their statement:

Safety concerns have been brought to our attention relating to speeding motorists travelling throughout the Great Park, in particular, Roseden Way and the access to the Community Centre and Brunton First School but not limited to this area. Northumbria Police have been made aware of the issue and will be monitoring the situation closely during January and February. Can we please ask all drivers to take extra care and be vigilant when driving around the Great Park. Our upmost priority remains the safety of people living and working on Newcastle Great Park and we want everyone to get home safely. Please drive safely and take care.’

Rather than just slow down whilst the law is monitoring your driving, how about showing you care about your neighbours and permanently killing your speed???

    Thank you for these positive updates, I would like to add if it would be possible for the railings to be repaired as you come into the estate at the roundabout of sir Bobby robson way they have been damaged and just left they look unsightly

      Hi Tracy, that’s no problem at all. For the railings, it would be a good idea to e-mail the NGP Estates Manager so that she can get this looked into – the e-mail address is

      I know they are now closed until the New Year, so it may be about Monday 11th of January before you get a response due to the 5 working day turnaround (depending on the volume of queries coming into them).
