York Place Shopping Centre - Newcastle Under Lyme
York Place is a 1960s build shopping centre comprising 28 units at the edge of Newcastle-under-Lyme town centre. Years of neglect resulted in York Place becoming a place to avoid - dark, damp and depressed, with little to attract customers. As a result, trading conditions worsened and the number of empty units increased. Working with tenants, partners, community groups, partners and local people, Hometown Plus has revived York Place during 2017. It is now fully let and has become a focal point for community activities and events. These changes are increasing footfall and so improving trading conditions for businesses.
