Council backs £2.3m Newcastle street food market plan to transform area used as ‘open toilet’

Councillors have backed £2.3 million plans for a new street food market to transform a corner of Newcastle city centre that is plagued by anti-social behaviour and drug dealing.

Newcastle City Council has approved a licence for a new venue bidding to move into Princess Square and a section of the Pearl building, despite fears from neighbours. Proposals for the ‘Newcastle Street Food’ development, which is based on a concept already operating in Edinburgh, were presented to a licensing panel last week – with promises that the “bleak” square would be turned into a foodie paradise.
