YEP Newcastle

YEP Newcastle is due to launch in 2019. The committee for this region represents a cross-section of specialist organisations with links to the Newcastle property industry. Wherever we are, the YEP mantra is the same, to be the ‘voice of future leaders in property’, and YEP Newcastle will represent everything that is great about the northeast region.

Newcastle played a major role during the 19th-century Industrial Revolution, and was a leading centre for coal mining, ship building, engineering, munitions and manufacturing. Heavy industries in Newcastle declined in the second half of the 20th century; with office, service and retail employment now becoming the city’s staples. The city was recognised for its commitment to environmental issues, with a programme planned for Newcastle to become “the first Carbon Neutral town however those plans have slipped considerably and they now hope to be carbon neutral by 2050.

Newcastle is the commercial, educational and, in partnership with nearby Gateshead, the cultural focus for North East England. As part of Tyneside, Newcastle’s economy contributes around £13 billion to the UK GVA. The Central Business District is in the centre of the city, bounded by Haymarket, Newcastle station and the Quayside areas

We look forward to establishing a chapter of YEP in northern England. If you are interested in knowing more about this Chapter, or opportunities of being involved as a partner, sponsor or committee member please email
