McCalmont-Woods negotiated a 75% saving for the The Newspaper Society on the proposed increase in a recent rent review on its 5,000 sq ft 8th floor offices in St. Andrew’s House, 18-20 St. Andrew Street, EC4.

Founding director Nick McCalmont-Woods said: “The new rent agreed with landlord PriceWaterhouseCoopers LLP at the 29th September 2008 review date represents an uplift of just 4% on the current rent.”

Lynne Anderson, Communications Director at The Newspaper Society said: “We are all looking to keep operating cost increases to a minimum. McCalmont-Woods delivered.”

The Newspaper Society represents and promotes the interests of Britain’s regional and local media. It was founded in 1836 and is thought to be the oldest publishers’ association in the world.
