Budding Newcastle city recovery starts

6 April 2010 | Posted in: Media

THE “green shoots of recovery” can be seen in Newcastle’s city centre according to a Newcastle City Council report. The overall number of vacant buildings, shop fronts and lots in the city centre had decreased from 166 in January last year to 145 that June. The report cited the reopening of Hunter Street Mall and increased activity brought about through the Renew Newcastle initiative, which set up artists and entrepreneurs in vacant shop fronts as the key reasons.
