Newquay BID seeks a third term


As it enters the final months of it second term, Newquay Business Improvement District (BID) is looking to be renewed for a further five years.

Newquay BID, the not for profit organisation that delivers projects and services in the town, funded by businesses, will see its second term come to end on March 31 of next year. The BID is looking to be renewed for a further five years subject to a new business plan being published and a ballot held in December.

Newquay BID is now consulting with all levy payers who contribute financially towards the BID to provide their feedback on existing projects and services to date and to gain some insight on how they would like to see the next five year term of BID shaped and what businesses feel the focus and aims should be.

BID manager, Carla-Marie Jones, said: “Newquay is such a great town, home to many superb businesses whom we would like to continue to support through delivering services that generate the greatest value in return for their money.

“We can only do this if businesses engage with us and tell us what they think so I would urge all businesses to have their say and fill in the first of several surveys. Now is your chance to share your experiences, note the value or inform us of new ideas which you would like to see come to fruition in Newquay over the coming years.”

Newquay BID began in 2011 and over the past ten years has delivered a wide range of projects and services to help make Newquay safer, more vibrant, more welcoming and to improve and support the business community.

A ballot for a third term will be held in December. Its current tenure comes to an end on March 31, 2021.
