Get Carter car park to bite the dust - at last!

The long running saga of the demolition of the multi-storey car park in central Gateshead that was made famous by its appearance in the iconic film "Get Carter" looks as though it has a happy ending. The demolition had started last year (it was initially planned to take place in 2007) but was stopped by the Council. The cause was the need by the developers to bring forward an acceptable development plan for the area.

Council Leader Mick Henry announced at the meeting on Thursday that agreement has now been reached and demolition can go ahead again. Good news at last. The end of this eyesore car park will not come too soon.

In view of its iconic film appearance - you'd have thought it ought to be listed really... :-)
