Autumn Update - October 2017
Summary findings from the BID Online Survey
We sent out an online survey link first in early May to the businesses in the proposed BID district, with follow up emails. Some were completed on a hard copy and uploaded to the survey tool. The survey was closed in August.
84 of you responded to from a good mix of business sectors in our Town. 38% were Independent or local retailers, 14% were Multiple Retail, 13% Business and Professional Services 8% Food and Drink, and 8% Health ad Beauty. These percentages correlate with the proportion of these sectors within the BID district.
Other feedback from face to face conversations, meetings and workshops has been included in the overall summary findings. This has resulted in the Steering Group identifying the themes you see in the Autumn Update. These will be built on in the Business Plan which will be out for Consultation with businesses in the BID district in due course.
