Mayor Andy Burnham and Leader of Rochdale Council to attend Stakehill Industrial Estate BID open event

The Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham will be speaking at a virtual open event, being held as part of Stakehill Industrial Estate’s proposal to become a Business Improvement District (BID).
The virtual event at 11.30am on Wednesday 11 November will also be attended by Leader of Rochdale Council, Councillor Allen Brett. Both Councillor Brett and Mayor Burnham will be discussing the plans for the BID, the opportunities for businesses on the estate, and Stakehill’s strategic role within the wider region.
Martyn Barrow, Stakehill BID Steering Group Chair who represents MID Communications, said: “We’re thrilled to have these two key political influencers showing their support for our plans to create a Stakehill BID and are looking forward to hearing their thoughts and learning from their experiences of successful BIDs across the region.
“We are now entering an important period over the next few weeks as the plan is pulled together which will provide support to all businesses in Stakehill over the next five years. As plans for the estate to grow to the east and south and neighbouring residential development will put additional pressure on the road network, the key issues we will be working to address will include improving bus services and other travel options to the estate, having an effective business crime prevention scheme and improving amenities for those who work here.”
It is anticipated that the BID will make a major contribution to supporting the businesses in the recovery and the post-Covid world.
Businesses from Stakehill can get involved in the BID by joining the event on Wednesday 11 November. Visit www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/stakehill-bid-virtual-open-event-tickets-125913148617 to book your place.
