Where has the money gone?


The North East gets twice as much EU funding as as other English regions. EU grants have provided substantial funding to regeneration projects including…

  • River Tyne North Bank
  • Redevelopment of the old Scottish & Newcastle Brewery site
  • Portobello Trade Park
  • Consett Business Park on the site of the old steelworks
  • Redevelopment of the Swan Hunter site
  • Sage Gateshead
  • Quayside Millennium Bridge
  • Angel of the North

For many of these schemes, our government in London was reluctant to help fund them, and without European funding they would not have happened.
