MORE THAN £100 INVESTED IN IMPROVING SAFFRON WALDEN TOWN CENTRE EVERY DAY
Saffron Walden’s town centre has benefited from £49,442 of investment in the past year, exceeding £100 every day.
The cash comes from the town’s businesses which have pulled together to form a Business Improvement District (BID).
The money has been used on initiatives designed to improve and promote the town centre – attracting more visitors and shoppers and helping businesses thrive.
The projects include:
Jim Brewin, Chairman of Saffron Walden BID, said:
“Saffron Walden’s Business Improvement District is led by businesses, for businesses, and we exist to improve and promote our town centre and make it even better for shoppers, visitors and residents. It’s been a busy first year testing and delivering initiatives on which we can build on in year 2. I’m proud that we have worked with many of our local businesses and partners and carefully invested in the community – be it on initiatives around parking, safety or talking up our excellent local businesses.
“I’m looking forward to year 2 – if we get this right, we can together meet the challenges of the internet and Brexit uncertainty - and our shops, offices and traders will thrive for many years to come.”

We are excited to have been given the democratic mandate to work together so we can better realise the potential for Saffron Walden’s businesses with this major investment over the next five years. I have no doubt the BID will make a real difference in our town and help businesses to thrive. Working together is the way forward.
