Stronger voice for business

Put simply, NE1 is the largest business lobby in Newcastle. Representing 1,400 of the city's biggest businesses, combined with a 88% in favour vote at our last Renewal Vote in 2018, provides a strong mandate to champion business' issues and get things done. In practice, the focus of work varies considerably, from the strategic (transport, capital projects and inward investment, etc) to the operational (cleansing, loading bays, on-street begging, etc) and both are equally important.
