Funded by businesses within the ring road of the city centre, Salisbury Business Improvement District (BID) delivers projects, services and initiatives for the benefit of their business members.
The purpose of the BID’s work is to provide added-value to the city centre and to deliver projects and services that would not otherwise be carried out by any other business, authority or stakeholder.
In 2019, Salisbury’s businesses voted for Salisbury BID to continue for a second 5-year term (with a 66.08% ballot turnout and 90.56% voting in favour of keeping the BID).
Salisbury BID has an annual budget of £350,000 and currently 3 full time members of staff to deliver the objectives set out in the BID’s business plan (2019 – 2024).
As a business-led organisation, Salisbury BID is asking for its members feedback to help steer the BID’s priorities for the next 12 months and to ensure the BID continues to deliver work that’s beneficial to their business members.
Salisbury BID members (businesses who pay the Salisbury BID levy) are being asked to complete a short members feedback survey.
The survey will close on Monday 10th February 2020.
Keith Hanson, Chair of Salisbury BID and Director of Personnel Placements, said: “The BID is business-led and for it to be a real success we need to continue to deliver projects that are beneficial to our business members.
“It’s really important we get an accurate understanding of what support businesses need for them to thrive, and therefore I encourage all members to take the time to complete the BID’s feedback survey.”
In partnership with VisitWiltshire, Salisbury BID co-fund the Visit Salisbury website to promote the city to visitors. The Visit Salisbury website has a full events calendar for Salisbury.
