Council due to reveal plans for Civic Centre

Newcastle City Council is due to reveal more details on its plans to raise money through the Civic Centre.

In July 2015 the authority announced plans to raise millions of pounds by investing in the iconic venue to become a home to public sector organisations.

The programme has progressed at pace, and phase one of the refurbishment Civic Centre's tower block is now more than 50% complete.

This has already improved the energy efficiency and reduced the maintenance costs of the building, and new tenants include ACAS and the Insolvency Service.
