The Business Improvement District will be a voice for business interests in the district. But any vision for the district can only be achieved with the support of partners in the local community and local authorities.
From the initial Feasibility Study, the promotors of the BID have engaged with resident, amenity and community groups as well as local councillors and the major cultural institutions nearby. Representatives of the community and local authorities formed part of the group assembled to commission the detailed Strategic Vision Study by Arup.
The new BID will provide a platform for businesses to work together with all elements of the local community to achieve an agreed vision for the district that benefits all stakeholders.
