UD/Nb/66/1-6 Town and Country Planning registers, 1948 - 1974.

 

The 1932 Town and County Planning Act enlarged the scope of planning legislation to include county areas as well as urban land in course of development or likely to be built upon, and gave County Councils power to participate in the planning of their counties. Such a Joint Planning Committee was set-up in Northumberland in 1939. However it was not until July 1948 that the County Council became the local planning authority for the whole county by virtue of the Town and County Planning Act, 1947.

 

The County Planning Committee delegated certain control development functions to County District Councils, such as Newburn.

 

The building control functions of the district councils remained unaffected by the 1947 Act, however, there would appear to be numerous instances of duplication of planning applications; therefore plans relating to applications to build or alter properties, not involving large scale development, may be found in the building control registers and plans series. Plans of large scale development applications are preserved at the Northumberland Record Office, Melton Park, Newcastle, but copies are mostly available with the general plans series UD/Nb/65.

Administrative History:

The Local Government Board Confirming Order for the conversion of part of the large Northumberland Rural District of Castle Ward into Newburn Local Board, comprising East and West Denton, Lemington, Newburn, Sugley, Throckley, Walbottle and Westerhope was signed on 2 March 1893.

 

The Urban District was created the following year. The Urban District Council was represented on Gosforth, Newburn and Castle Ward Joint Hospital Committee from 1903 to 1939 and from 1939 until 1948 on the West Northumberland Joint Hospital Board. The Council administered the Isolation Hospital at Lemington.

 

Until 1929 Newburn UDC was part of Castle Ward Poor Law Union and as such oversaw the assessment and collection of the poor-rates for residents in the parishes of Newburn, East Denton, Lemington and Sugley.

 

Between 1894 and 1974 Newburn UDC was responsible for approving planning applications within its area.

 

In 1974 the Local Government Act merged Newburn with the City of Newcastle upon Tyne.
