Newry BID Project Manager recently hosted a week of workshops and consultations inviting local businesses to consult and contribute their ideas as to how they would spend a potential BID pot of money to improve the city centre.
A BID, or Business Improvement District to give it its full title, is an organisation elected into being by local businesses who will invest collectively into a fund that is ring-fenced for projects identified by the businesses. A not-for-profit BID company is established to develop the projects following a successful BID ballot – all eligible stakeholders will be invited to vote for a Newry BID in October.
Newry BID – a collection of businesses in the Newry City area, focused on delivering a better Newry, improving and taking on new, exciting concepts and projects. Please explore this website and find something new about Newry you didn’t already know about.
