Urban Green Newcastle is a pioneering, independent charity established in collaboation with the local council in 2019.  We are responsible for the management and upkeep of 33 parks and over 60 allotments across the city, as well as nearly 60 buildings within the estate.

We are committed to preserving and breathing new life into Newcastle’s green spaces. With a small but dedicated team, our vision is to encourage more people to enjoy and benefit from the beautiful, open spaces on our doorstep. We aim to create parks and allotments for us all to be proud of which are safe, welcoming, and provide a great environment for both people and nature to thrive.

A new citywide partnership has been awarded £701,417 from Defra and The National Lottery Heritage Fund to develop and improve pollinator pathways across Newcastle upon Tyne.

The new funding is supporting projects that tackle habitat loss, safeguard fragile ecosystems, and create and restore nature-rich landscapes full of wildlife-friendly habitats within precious chalk streams, wetlands, heathlands, grasslands and scrublands.
