The Newport Now Business Improvement District (BID) was set up in 2015 after a ballot of eligible businesses in the city centre. Newport Now has a five-year business plan to deliver, after which a renewal ballot will be held.

Newport Now operates across three key areas:

Future Newport: delivering ‘digital high street’ projects, and finding ways for BID members to save money on energy, telecoms, merchants fees and waste collection via collaborative purchasing.

Safe and Secure Newport: Newport Now provides a visible and reassuring presence on the street with our team of fully-trained and licensed Ambassadors who work closely with all BID members and the local police force.

Welcome to Newport: delivering a programme of city centre events and core costs.
