Arena Racing Company has revealed plans for a multimillion pound redevelopment scheme for High Gosforth Park and Newcastle Racecourse.

Following on from previous development work, which included the installation of the Tapeta surface and enhanced racing facilities, the proposals will further boost the international prestige of the racecourse, create new jobs in hospitality, tourism and construction.

Improvements across the racecourse estate will include an events centre, alongside significant refurbishment of the public and hospitality areas as well as the racing staff accommodation. The plans for High Gosforth Park also include the development of high quality residential accommodation, along with refurbishment to the listed Brandling House and the associated public space to fit in with the heritage of the site.
