Newcastle, Tyne and Wear
Newcastle upon Tyne is so called for its proximity to the River Tyne. It is the most populated city in the North East region, home to over 280,000 residents as of 2011. Its size and population make it a powerhouse in the North East, attracting residents with its potential for secure work, shopping, leisure and strong transport links to the rest of the country.
Newcastle enjoys a thriving cultural reputation made up of clubs, theatres, festivals and concerts. As is the case with many cities, the high density nature of the Newcastle’s properties and developments means emerging Japanese knotweed is a particular threat.
