Newquay Business Improvement District (BID) is asking the town’s levy-paying businesses to provide feedback on its existing projects and services and for insight into the direction they would like the next five-year term to take.
The BID’s third-term consultation survey has been launched digitally and distributed via email to over 400 businesses within the BID area. The final deadline for responses is the end of September.
Formed in 2011, Newquay BID is a not-for-profit organisation that delivers projects and services in the town to make Newquay safer, more vibrant, more welcoming and to improve and support the business community. Currently approaching the end of its second term which is due to cease on March 31 next year, the BID hopes to be reinstated for a further five years subject to a new business plan being published and a ballot held in December.
Following a consultation period with member businesses and the collation of this critical feedback, a business plan will be developed outlining the key aims and objectives that the BID will lead on for the upcoming five-year term. A subsequent ballot will be held where each business will have the opportunity to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to the renewal of the BID.
BID manager, Carla–Marie Jones, said: “We are very keen to hear from as many BID levy paying businesses as possible from across all represented sectors, including; retail, licensed premises, cafés and restaurants, accommodation providers, professional services, local authorities and garages.”
