Bid renewal

We want to continue creating the best possible commercial environment for businesses in the city

NE1 exists to serve the city's businesses and to support, empower, and enable them, giving them the opportunity to excel.

As a Business Improvement District Company, 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.

Our extensive consultation with our BID members, both locally and nationally, in 2018 resulted in a clear set of business priorities for our next BID term, 2019 - 2024. They are:

Getting the basics right

Ensuring Newcastle is cleaner, greener, and safer

Attracting and promoting

Increasing footfall, spend, dwell time, and perceptions of the city

Curating the experience

Better coordination and management of the city centre experience and environment

Increased investment

Working with the public and private sector to drive further investment in the city centre

Improving connectivity

From a digital perspective and looking at the city's regional, national, and international transport links

There’s a lot going on at NE1 every day, all year round

There’s always something happening in our wonderful city. As well as our key projects, we are immersed in the wider happenings of Newcastle.
