Changing Newcastle which was set up in 2018 aims to help transform Newcastle Upon Tyne. East Pilgrim Street is one of the three areas that we are focusing on for the next 2 years and beyond we believe that this will become an important area in Newcastle which has become a hot spot for Arts, Community and Culture within the heart of the city and we believe that they should stay within this area. The Stack has recently been built and will be there for at least 3 years and the council used the comment by the founder of Changing Newcastle to get this built. This area will be developed and here at Changing Newcastle we feel that the public should be more involved in the development and shape this area for the future.

What we'll deliver:

  • Make sure that the artists and community groups stay within the area.
  • Bring back buildings that are listed back into use for a short period of time
  • Put life back into the middle and southern area (Old Fire/Police Station and Bank of England Site)
  • Pedestrianise Pilgrim Street Upper (allowing taxis to use the taxi rank and putting 2 bus shelters at either end)
  • Bring Carliol Square Car Park up to standard
  • To get Simon Reuben invested in the site again.

Why it's a great idea:

This area will be developed and we will look to make sure that the area is created in a way that is pleasing and makes the city work. Working in partnerships with other organisations we would invest the money that we are looking to raise to bring back life into the following buildings Worswick Chambers, The Old Police/Fire Station and Anderson House all these buildings are in different stages of repair and some of them will be able to be moved into straight away and some will take hundreds of thousand pounds to do. We will then rent these out to a few of the organisations that need space from the community that will one day be displaced from the buildings that they are in at the moment. We will work with NCC and NE1 to pedestrianise Pilgrim Street upper this will make this area more accessible and connect a lot of the organisations without a road separating them allowing them to work together.

Steps to get it done:

  • Talk to involved parties
  • Get permission to work on Worswick Chambers
  • Find building companies to do the work
  • Talk with National Heritage about Worswick Chambers
  • Talk with owners about Anderson House
