BR BID Delivery Commitments 2023-2024

Throughout the five years of our second term, we need to be smart about where we target our efforts to get the biggest impact for ALL BID levy paying businesses within the limits of the budgets. To do that, we need to make sure that all BID activity is both tightly focused in business priorities and delivers best practice strategies for town centre transformation.

This isn't a finite list, rather a commitment to what we will deliver every year. There's still flexibility to take on new opportunities as they arise, so long as they are: underlined by the Town Values, environmentally sustainable, support delivery of business' priority objectives, have the support of levy payers represented by the BID Board of Directors, can be achieved with budget, and can be incorporated within the BID Team's workload.
