What will BID 2 Deliver?

Promoting & Animating

Shrewsbury is already a successful town with the potential to be even better. It is vitally important that the town continues to be professionally promoted and exciting activities are delivered to attract new customers.

Supporting & Enhancing

The visitor experience is increasingly important to the success of town centres. Shrewsbury BID will work with partners to improve the accessibility and attractiveness of the town whilst continuing to deliver and develop its award-winning safety projects.

Representing & Influencing

Towns operate more efficiently and profitably if businesses and public authorities are working effectively together. A continued strong and representative business voice through the BID on issues affecting the town centre is therefore vital to the success of Shrewsbury.

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 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.
