Governance of the BID

The management and governance of the BID will be open and transparent and will be accountable to the levy payers.

The Shrewsbury BID operates as a company limited by guarantee and as such has a Board of Directors made up from BID levy payers. This Board takes responsibility for the strategic and financial management of the BID and will meet on a quarterly basis as a minimum.

The composition of the Board reflects the breakdown of the levy payers across the town. Alongside the Board there will be a variety of short life and/or ongoing working groups that will feed into the Board as and when required. It is the responsibility of the Board of Directors to ensure good management of the BID.

The management team will be a combination of salaried and contracted resource depending on the needs of the business during the term of the BID.
