Helping to shape Newport on the Isle of Wight since 2012, by supporting local businesses.
We are delighted to be a key part of Shaping Newport, working alongside Newport and Carisbrooke Community Council and Isle of Wight Council.
The extensive Shaping Newport survey is 2017 gave feedback on what Islanders want to see Newport to be as the ideal place to shop, relax and dwell.
We are at the forefront of making Newport a proud county town and a most enjoyable place to be.
We can pool resources & ideas, support each other’s activities, work together on projects, provide feedback and views and get to know each other better. We are already proving that we DO have the power to make and encourage change.
Our aims are safer roads, better parking & signage, a good community spirit, happy retailers, happy shoppers and good amenities. We want Newport to be a thriving town, with no empty shops and less traffic congestion.
