The BID Business Plan is available to read here.
It has been developed following detailed consultation with businesses over the past two years including meetings with businesses, a survey and workshops. Every business has been invited to put forward their thoughts and ideas and we are grateful for all the suggestions that have been put forward.
The BID ballot will take place from 18 March - 15 April 2021. If the BID is successful, the levy can only be used to deliver projects agreed in advance by the businesses so we have been keen to ensure that the proposal reflect the priorities and suggestions put forward by the businesses.
During the consultation we identified the following themes which would be the focus for the activities of the BID:
- Creating and maintaining quality space
- Improving sustainability and the environment
- Creating and promoting a vibrant place
- Representing and connecting businesses
- Building a safe and caring community
Having circulated the Business Plan, we will now contact businesses within the proposed BID area to discuss the proposals ahead of the ballot in March.
