Definitely not. The BID will be an independent, private, not-for-profit company. The BID will be managed and monitored by, the levy-paying businesses. It will operate solely to deliver the projects contained within the BID Business Plan – that’s why it has been so important for us to get the business plan right! All projects and services delivered by the BID will be new, or in addition to Council services. Legally, a BID can only deliver over and above statutory services. Part of the BID’s role will be to ensure local public agencies are delivering against the baseline statements they have already provided to the BID Team. Statements cover car parking and enforcement, highway maintenance, street lighting and furniture, seasonal floral decorations, parks and recreational spaces, tourism, police, community safety, CCTV, street trading and enforcement.
