The BID will be the voice of town centre businesses. These are actions to promote and support the views and interests of town centre businesses in response to official consultations from local and central Government and through championing particular issues and causes that have a bearing on the town centre.


We will continue to lobby for you on issues such as business rates and car parking. We will continue to raise awareness of your needs and to source additional funding and expertise from external bodies to add value to your own contributions (e.g. Healthy High Streets, Portas Pilot, Revive and Thrive).

Business Voice

We will work with the two Councils to play our part in the delivery of their key projects and to ensure the voice of business is heard.
