Businesses which have been involved in developing the new Business Improvement District (BID) initiative will be out and about in the next few weeks visiting and talking to other businesses about the BID Proposal and Business Plan.
The people making the visits are managers from retail, both national and independent, pubs and restaurants, and professional service businesses such as solicitors.
Lorenzo O’Reilly, chairman of the BID Steering Group and Manager of the Exchange Shopping Centre said: "Although many businesses from across the town centre have been involved in the development of the plan through workshops, surveys and interviews, this provides another opportunity for everyone to feel happy with the plan, ask questions and ensure that they know how to get the most out of their involvement of the BID.
"Their involvement will give them direct influence over £1.5 million work of investment over the next five years, to benefit their businesses and the town.
"The contribution which the businesses will make will range from 58 pence per day but the value they get back from the activities from the BID should far exceed that."
Businesses are being encouraged to read the full prospectus and the full proposal which can be found online at:
