The parish council administer the Newcastle side, whereas the area located in North Tyneside does not have a parish council. Much of the Newcastle Great Park development is within the area administered by the Hazlerigg Parish Council.


Hazlerigg was once the site of a coal mine Hazlerigg colliery which was in use from 1892 to 1964. The village prospered due to the export business thriving within it. Local houses for miners were built and they founded the village seen today by visitors and inhabitants.


The nearest school is Hazlewood Community Primary School, of which most of the village children attend until Year 6.There once was a school located in the heart of Hazlerigg, but it was demolished in 1993. Fact|date=May 2008
