Weston Business Improvement District (BID) Third Term – Tell us what you think?
Weston BID has been operating successfully for ten years delivering projects and services to support businesses in our great seaside town.
Weston BID’s second term finishes on 31st March 2022 but can be renewed subject to a new business plan being published and a ballot held where every levy paying business has a vote. Ahead of this process, we want to hear from all our levy paying businesses.
Weston is your town and importantly, it is where you have chosen to invest your business; this survey is your chance to tell us what you would like to see delivered as part of a third five-year term.
Your feedback and ideas will inform a new five-year business plan to be published in October 2021 ahead of a ballot in November/December 2021, where you will have the chance to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ for the continuation of the BID from April 2022 to March 2027. For the BID to proceed to a third term, there must be a majority voting in favour by number and by rateable value.
Please help us shape the next five years’ worth of investment in Weston - remember it is your BID scheme and it is vital that it reflects your needs whilst supporting Weston’s future prosperity.
Understandably, there is concern about the future of the town following the pandemic. By working together with you and our statutory partners, we can pool our resources and expertise to address issues of concern and grasp new opportunities to improve and promote Weston, keeping our town safe and secure, driving footfall and new investment.
The first ten years of a BID in Weston have demonstrated what can be achieved by businesses and partners working together towards a common aim. We have helped North Somerset secure millions of pounds worth of investment for the town, and now it is more important than ever that we all work together for the benefit of Weston.
With your support and involvement, we can all help Weston recover from the pandemic, and become a great place to work, live and visit.

Giving your business name allows us to understand the views of levy payers from different sectors, business sizes and areas within the BID boundary as well as ensuring we have the correct details so you have the right to vote later in the year.
