Community Enquiry for the Scottish & Newcastle Brewery Site
Key public, city authority and business stakeholders were invited to join a process to consider a vision and outline plan for the former brewery site and environs, adjacent to the St James’ football ground at the edge of the city centre. A series of underpinning principles to do with place purpose and character were identified and fed into the public debate. Key among these was the notion of connectivity with the city centre – the possibility of creating what might become Newcastle’s third great street. Four Scenarios were suggested to help focus the city’s deliberations on practical outcomes.
