Following Newcastle City Council’s decision in November 2017 to set up a Parks Trust for Newcastle (see Planning for implementation), Newcastle City Council recruited the first Chair and Board of Trustees for the new charity, with support from the National Trust. More detail about the Board can be found here.


Newcastle Parks Trust, Newcastle City Council, and the National Trust are now working together to recruit the first Chief Executive for the new charity.The Board and Chief Executive will shape and steer the charity to ensure the parks and green spaces flourish, and the charity will take over running the parks in 2019.
