Plans have been approved to build a giant warehouse with enough room for 400 workers.
Developer Peveril Securities has now got permission to build on the 6.5-hectare site to the west of Pit Head Close and Lymedale Business Park, in Chesterton.
The site had been home to the Stoke Potters speedway team since 1973 until its Loomer Road Stadium was controversially sold off last year.
One concern had been about potential traffic and parking issues on Loomer Road once the warehouse is built.
But vehicle access to the site will be via Pit Head Close and Lymedale Business Park.
Now members of Newcastle Borough Council‘s planning committee have approved the scheme at a meeting this week. They voted unanimously to approve the plan.
Committee chairman Andrew Fear said: “The most important thing is for us to be clear in our own minds about access.
“A lot of residents have mentioned Loomer Road. But the only access from this site is from Pit Head Close and that’s the important point.”
Councillor Bert Proctor said: “There is no vehicular access via Loomer Road, which fits in with what residents want. The pedestrian access that leads from Loomer Road is what residents are looking for.
“From the point of view of access I think where we are today is where we need to be.”
