For the last few months we have been working with the team at Leichhardt Council to develop a plan for the area’s empty shop and office spaces. We’ve held two public meetings, we’ve met with property owners, we’ve secured a few properties in Norton Street and in the Italian Forum are we are now ready to roll out the first phase of the Renew Sydney program!

A full web site and local campaign are coming soon but we are calling for expressions of interest right now. We aim to have the first projects in by Christmas and continue to add projects throughout the new year.

If you are interested in being part of the first wave of Renew Leichhardt projects then you need to get a proposal to us by the 8th of November. The first group of spaces are mostly small retail spaces. They would suit makers, craftspeople, galleries, fashion design and other similar uses but don’t be afraid to suggest something a little out of the box. Make sure you read our Renew Leichhardt FAQ if you are interested in applying.

We are very excited to be coming to Sydney and hope this is the first of many projects and opportunities in greater Sydney for Renew Australia! If you want to make sure you know more about these and other Renew Australia opportunities in Sydney then make sure you subscribe to our E-News, and follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook.

Also if you’re in other local government areas in Sydney and you’d like to encourage Renew projects in your area then feel free to drop our new Sydney team a line: sydney [at] renewaustralia.org and we can see what we can do.
