Since 2008, Renew Newcastle has been connecting people with vacant spaces, supporting a community of creative entrepreneurs who bring life, interest and activity into under utilised neighbourhoods. Partnering with those who share the vision of giving back to their community.
What makes a good Renew Newcastle project?
- It adds life to the city
- It is unique
- It has a high degree of professionalism or a very clear idea
- It is ongoing
- It is ready
- It has the support of the property owner
How long does Renew Newcastle have properties for?
Renew Newcastle’s default license agreement is based on accessing the property on a rolling 30 day basis. That means Property Owners can give 30 days notice at any time should they receive a commercial offer or need to proceed with development. This enables the property owner to provide the property without sacrificing the potential commercial returns and is one of the key reasons why properties are made available so cheaply.
