VAUX site masterplan Sunderland

In November 2019 we announced an ambitious strategy to create a new urban quarter in the heart of the city. The intention is to regenerate land on both sides of the river Wear, creating new homes, offices and other work space, public buildings and cultural attractions. Galley’s Gill will be transformed into a wonderful landscape park, and the site will be connected by two new bridges across the river. Now it’s time for the people of Sunderland to have their say and help to shape our plans.

From Wednesday 12 February to Saturday 15 February there will be a four-day event in The Beam- the stunning new office development on St Mary’s Boulevard. We will be open the following times and you can call in at any time.

Wednesday 12 February, 5 - 7pm

Thursday 13 February, 10am - 1pm; 2pm - 5pm; 6pm - 7:30pm

Friday 14 February, 10am - 1pm; 2pm - 5pm

Saturday 15 February, 10:30am - 4:30pm drop-in session with a presentation at 12noon and 2:30pm
