Businesses in Fleet have voted to form a new business led and business funded partnership known as a Business Improvement District (BID).
BIDs have been established in over 260 places across the UK, with the aim of providing targeted improvements to commercial areas. These improvements are not a replacement for the council’s responsibilities to the town, but additional business enhancements.
The vision for the Fleet Business Improvement District is to create a vibrant town we can all be proud of, where businesses prosper, our communities thrive and visitors choose to shop and do business.
The BID is led by 11 BID Board Directors. Find out more about the Directors here…
Fleet BID operates within a defined geographical area and will bring new initiatives and deliver services in addition to those already provided by local councils and other service providers.
The BID is delivered by the Fleet Business Improvement District Company, an independent not-for-profit company limited by guarantee. The Board of Directors are responsible for the delivery of the BID and providing leadership and strategic direction. Our governance principles can be found here. Our latest audited accounts can be downloaded here and our articles of association here.
All activities are designed to meet one or more of the following aims:
The BID Board meet regularly to agree priorities. Minutes of board meetings, annual levy payer meetings and general meetings can be found here…
The part time BID Manager is the main liaison point between the BID Board and the businesses and responsible for ensuring the delivery of projects defined by the Board.
Fleet BID keeps businesses in the BID area updated through our website, social media, our regular email updates and printed newsletters.
