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, adjacent to the St James’ football ground at the edge of Newcastle city centre. A series of underpinning principles regarding 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.
