South Shields Riverside is a priority regeneration area that offers significant opportunity for high quality commercial and residential development.
The area runs from Harton Quays Park in the north through to the former Commercial Hotel site in the south.
It is critical to realising the Council's ambition of a rejuvenated South Shields that benefits its residents, businesses and visitors.
South Shields Riverside progress so far
In the past few years, South Tyneside Council has delivered regeneration schemes that have transformed South Shields riverside, creating hundreds of jobs and attracting millions of pounds of private investment, including:
Harton Quays Park
Harton Quays Park adjacent to the Customs House, One Harton Quay and Ferry Landing opened to the public in September 2013.
The park, which stretches along the River Tyne from the ferry landing to the Customs House, is an attractive gateway into South Shields Town Centre.
The high specification design includes a curved stone ribbon wall, a promenade, a striking water feature, lawns and colourful planting, as well as garden seating areas and a dramatic 'pine grove' viewing point across the river.
