Consultation for a 3rd BID term for Truro commences
Totally Truro is in the final nine months of the current 5 year term. The Truro BID team have begun consulting city centre businesses to determine if there is an interest to proceed for a third 5 year term.
These meetings offered a refreshed opportunity for businesses to give feedback on current BID activities and put forward new ideas for projects. The continuation for funding the annual Christmas lighting scheme, ongoing marketing activity and a focus on making the city safer were the priority for many.
Other projects such as Truro Trend; the city's annual fashion week, city centre signage and creating a more pleasant trading environment also featured highly as a priority for businesses.
New project ideas included a ‘Shop Local' campaign, unified trading hours, management of ‘Open Spaces', planting of trees in the centre, a ‘Sustainability Agenda' for Truro and focused marketing support for different business sectors.
The feedback and project ideas have now been formulated into a questionnaire, which can be downloaded here. This questionnaire will be assisted by further meetings with businesses and the BID team to gain as much insight and feedback as possible.
Once the questionnaires have been returned (by the 20th February), the BID Board will consider if there has been enough positive feedback to proceed to a full ballot and ask members to cast their vote for a third BID for Truro this June.
