Councillors have given the green light to £120m development plans for land next to St James' Park, despite a massive backlash from Newcastle United supporters.

A huge transformation of Strawberry Place that will dramatically alter the Newcastle skyline has been approved.



Greg Tomlinson, of the Newcastle United Supporters' Trust, told a hearing at the Mansion House that an extension of the stadium was not needed now but could be in future with a "successful and ambitious Newcastle United".



But Newcastle City Council's planning committee voted by a margin of seven to three in support of the scheme on Friday.

Newcastle Central Labour candidate Chi Onwurah, one of 1,710 objectors to the plans, said that Newcastle United and St James' Park have "far more economic, cultural, and social benefit than any one development".

She added that the Strawberry Place site has long been earmarked as a site for development that could accommodate tall buildings.
