What we do

NE1’s approach might best be described as “direct”.

It matches a soaring ambition and the pragmatism to seize new opportunities. It combines a clear vision for Newcastle with the delivery of tangible projects which help deliver that vision. And fundamental always to the approach is remembering the importance of “the day job”. We don’t forget the basics; a clean, safe and welcoming city, and NE1’s role in providing these.



Newcastle City Centre's NE1 BID was set up in 2009 and is widely recognised as one of the most successful in the country.
