St Ives BID will come to the end of its current term on 31st May 2024.
For almost a decade, St Ives BID has successfully delivered projects and services that businesses have identified as priorities. St Ives BID would like to thank all businesses and other partners in the town for the time and support they have given that has enabled these initiatives to be successfully delivered.
For further information on what has been delivered during the second term and to find out more about St Ives BID, click on our consultation document.
Under BID legislation, St Ives BID can be renewed for a further five years from June 2024 – May 2029 subject to a new business plan being published and a ballot being held. Feedback from businesses so far through our early survey indicates that there is an appetite for the BID to be renewed.
We have used this early feedback to suggest some project ideas under four main themes but want you to tell us if these are the right ones and also hear about any new ideas you may have. We will use the results to shape our next business plan.
We understand how busy you are so the survey has been designed to take no longer than 10 minutes, but there are opportunities for you to expand on comments and provide us with vital feedback. To take part in the survey click here – https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/StIvesBID3rdTermSurvey/
If you would like to discuss anything further then do drop us a line by emailing Sarah Hooper at email@example.com and we can arrange a time to do this.
Thank you for your contribution and for being part of an exciting future for St Ives.
