CGISS Community Consultation

Posted on: March 28th, 2018

Join us for the second community consultation of the Common Ground in Sacred Space project, at Newcastle Cathedral, Southern Entrance, on Thursday 19th April 2018 from 16:00 to 19:00.

The consultation is a drop-in session and we hope that you will be able to drop by!

April’s Community Consultation is the second in a series of sessions, which began in November 2017. At that first session, we asked how the external spaces of the Cathedral are currently used, what you think of the quality of the space and we collected your thoughts and ideas on how to develop the spaces around the Cathedral to encourage greater use.

Based on all the information you kindly shared with us in November, we have developed a proposed design for the external space of St. Nicholas Cathedral and we are looking forward to sharing it with you at this second consultation event. We hope that you will be able to drop by and give us feedback and comments on the design before we take the design development further.

What is The Common Ground in Sacred Space Development Project?

Our Vision is to bring 900 years of history into the 21st century by reviving the medieval role of our unique building as a distinct space for worship, events and activities. The transformed Cathedral will be a dynamic hub for community engagement as well as a special place of prayer and spiritual discovery.

As a part of a comprehensive Design Team, HarrisonStevens have been appointed as Landscape Architects on this exciting and engaging project. We will be predominantly focusing on the landscape to the south and east churchyards to create a series of beautiful, accessible and engaging public spaces surrounding Newcastle Cathedral. We would very much welcome your input at the event.
