Bidding for a second term

Businesses in Newquay are being given a chance to cast their votes on whether they want Newquay Business Improvement District (BID) to continue into a second term.

The ballot papers have been sent out to BID members this week and recipients have until 5pm on Thursday, December 10, to return their paper.

Colin Paul, owner of Pauline’s Ltd, is a strong supporter of the scheme. He said: “The thought of there being no BID concerns me as there is so much to lose.

“It does such a fantastic job of driving footfall through organising and carrying out events; being a lobbying voice for businesses and much, much more.

“What some people don’t realise is that, without the BID, we won’t get this kind of investment from anywhere else; Cornwall Council will only deliver the legal minimum to our community.”
