Looking for new business premises?

As part of Urban Green Newcastle’s ongoing work to regenerate and revitalise Newcastle’s parks and allotments, we are working with property specialists George F White to start the process of seeking commercial tenants for unoccupied buildings across the estate.

Breathing new life into many of the unused buildings in the city’s parks is a key ambition for our charity. Like all the commercial ventures we deliver, any profits will be reinvested into caring for Newcastle’s parks and allotments, and we are seeking to partner with organisations that share our vision and values.

We are currently advertising…
