Will ‘The Newport Now Bid’ Draw in Support from the Region’s Top Businesses?


Businesses in Newport have voted to establish a new business led mechanism to support and promote the city centre.

The Newport Now BID went live on 1st April 2015 and will soon start to deliver a range of projects as part of its five year programme of improvements.

Any business with a premises within the Newport Now BID area can join one of three theme groups – Safe & Secure Newport, Welcome to Newport and Future Newport – and be directly involved in shaping projects to improve the city centre.

There will be a lot of activity happening over the next few months as we start to deliver our programme of improvements. To become involved in the development these activities email us on [email protected] or pop in to our new base at 26 Skinner Street.

Newport Now is run by businesses for businesses in our city centre.
