The meeting is a follow-up to the ​Flood Workshop which took place immediately after the incident and it is hoped that businesses will be updated on where Newry is in relation to the flooding.

A spokesperson for Newry BID said, “The meeting will be in the same format as the original flood meeting and will capture all attendees feedback in a post meeting report.

"The meeting will also gather members' views on:

"What the parameters and questions should be for any investigations into the flooding

"Infrastructural and investment priorities for Newry going forward to ensure its effective recovery post-flood

"How Newry BID can engage effectively with policy-makers and the wider community on future investment decisions”.

MEETING

The meeting will take place in the Canal Court Hotel on Monday, January 8 from 7pm-9pm.

The spokesperson added, “Once again we urge all businesses, to attend so that we can gather as much data and evidence as possible.

"If you are not currently a Newry BID member, you can join by contacting [email protected] to be included in the data presented; or if you are outside the BID area, you are still welcome to attend for information purposes.”
