The summer may have been a washout, but the BID has been busy dressing the city, finding great deals for BID businesses and getting to grips with what businesses think in the BID annual survey.
In June, the 517 businesses in the BID area were canvassed to find out what they thought of the BID project. The results are published in the new Summer/Autumn newsletter. Overall, they are great with some surprises in there too. But there's still plenty to improve on, so we are setting our sighst at continually growing the service to benefit BID levy payers.
Also hot off the press are details on the brand new 'Ride the Wave' project to support local business through the recession. After the success of the project last year, the Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the City Council, has put on a range of workshops and classes to help businesses in every way imaginable. From Secret Shoppers to support for start-ups there's something for everyone. For more details just click on the link below.
The BID is not just about the three main projects of dressing the city, security and Christmas lights and inside this issue there's a whole host of offers that are solely for BID members. These range from cheaper car parking to some great PR and advertising opportunities. Gavin Stewart, BID Manager said, "The BID community has committed nearly £1.8m over the BID term to making Brighton City Centre a great place to live, visit and work. We are equally committed to adding value to the project by bringing offers and news to the BID community to support our unique city, helping businesses thrive and creating a vibrant and exciting city centre".
