Creating the best possible commercial environment for your city’s businesses

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.

Our extensive consultation with our BID members, both locally and nationally, has resulted in a clear set of business priorities for the next five years. 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
