Bid Renewal

NE1 exists to create the best possible commercial environment for the city’s businesses.

Because of the type of company NE1 is, we are required by law to ballot our levy payers every five years. This allows businesses to collectively decide whether or not they want to carry on paying for what we do, and provides business with the opportunity to craft and shape the future growth and development of Newcastle.

A key factor in NE1’s success to date has been the strong support and guidance provided by the city’s business community. As such, your views are essential in helping shape our business plan for the next 5 years
