Newcastle United has asked for help in meeting the deadline for the completion of its football academy. The club was granted planning permission in April for the academy and other sports facilities at Little Benton. People living near the site objected to the likelihood of noise disturbance during the construction period. A condition was laid down that there should be no noisy work outside 8am-6pm on Monday to Friday and 8am-1pm on Saturdays. But to ensure that the club meets the deadline set by football authorities for the opening of the academy, United has asked the council for an hour’s extension to the working day and an extra four hours on Saturdays for noisy activities. The new conditions would be in operation for just over a month. City councillors are being advised this week to allow working for an extra half hour at the end of weekdays and until 4pm on Saturdays. The proposals by the Angel group would see up to 34 asylum seekers accommodated in Bentick Villas in the city’s West End. Two petitions and 31 letters of objection have been lodged against the scheme.
