North Shields & Fish Quay

Coastal Team

North Shields and the Fish Quay, located at the mouth of the River Tyne, are intrinsically linked through a rich history of traditional industries, workers housing and the town centre. The area has an array of listed and locally listed buildings, a scheduled ancient monument and boasts four adjoining conservation areas, all of which aim to preserve and enhance a unique location of the region. Clifford’s Fort, the scheduled ancient monument located in the heart of the Fish Quay has only recently been removed from the English Heritage Buildings at Risk register through the continued work of the Authority, its partners and local interest groups.

The Fish Quay neighbourhood is a mixture of fishing related industries, restaurants, cafes, drinking establishments, leisure and tourism and small to medium sized businesses with an eclectic mix and vibrant day and night time economy.

The aim of the Coastal Community Team is to enhance the already excellent partnerships based in the area, to bring forward positive change, to encourage more businesses to locate in the area, more people to visit including educational visits and to support existing businesses and to ultimately create more employment opportunities. The prosperity of the Fish Quay will also bring important benefits to the adjacent North Shields town centre.
