Newcastle Now is a Business Improvement Association. It is a membership based, not for profit organisation that is primarily funded by a levy paid by all commercial building owners within a specific area of Newcastle's city centre (our member base), as well as by fee for service arrangements and other funding sources. It is governed by an annually elected committee of management drawn from the member base. Download the Newcastle BIA Constitution.
