What are BIDs and how are they helping                   Garratt Business Park

BIDs (Business Improvement Districts) are designated areas within which all businesses pay an additional levy for the maintenance, development and promotion of their district, based on the rateable value of their individual business unit.

This will be collected by the Council and then paid over to the management company.

It ensures that the costs of maintaining, improving and managing of the estate (BID area) will be evenly and fairly spread.

We are now getting ready for BID3. BIDs need to be renewed every five years, which gives the Business Community the opportunity to take a fresh look at the achievements and the detailed BID rules.

See further details under the BID 3 section.

Our first BID commenced in April 2009 (BID1) and was voted in with a very large majority of over 90% in December 2008. This enabled us to make major improvements to the estate, deal with security issues and implement maintenance schedules. See detailed brochure under the BID1 section.

Our second BID commenced in April 2014 (BID2) and again was accepted by a majority of over 90% in December 2013. We continued to improve the infrastructure, roads, lights, gates, drains and CCTV plus introduced fibre optic Broadband taking advantage of government grants, improving on speed and reliability of the internet service.
