Date published: 12 September 2018

Businesses are being invited to drop in for coffee and a chat about the new Business Improvement District proposal at the Town Management’s offices on a Tuesday morning at any time between 10.00am and 12 noon.

The vision of the BID Business Plan is to ‘To create a safe, vibrant and attractive town centre that has a sense of identity, which is family orientated and welcoming to all’.

The plan has four key priority areas: promotion and animation of the town centre, safety, security and accessibility, the way the town looks and having a great business, leisure and cultural offer.
