The Rochdale Business Improvement District (BID) launched its BID Proposal and Business Plan (2024-2029) to businesses last week.
Chair of the BID Mark Foxley said: "It was a really positive event where directors, owners and managers of businesses and organisations in the town centre heard about the important role the BID plays in representing their interests.”
"The BID has provided a range of support to businesses over the last five years. This has included rangers, targeted street cleaning, floral displays and new lighting, new public street furniture and artwork and events to drive footfall such as the BID Street Eat Festival.”
Businesses learnt about the plan for the next five-year term of the BID and the vision ‘To create a safe, vibrant and attractive town centre that has a sense of identity, which is family orientated and welcoming to all’.
The new business plan builds on the achievements of the first term and has four key priority areas: promotion and animation of the town centre, safety, security and accessibility, the way the town looks and creating a great business, leisure and cultural offer.
The budgeted income available for the five-year period of the BID is approximately £1.4 million. The yearly income will be made up of some £288,000 from the levy revenues and a sum averaging around £26,000 from voluntary, private and public-sector contributions.
