Fleet Business Improvement District (BID) is a business led and business funded initiative in Fleet.
In March 2017 businesses in Fleet voted to become a Business Improvement District (BID) which is a 5 year programme until 2022. A Business Improvement District is a business-led and funded partnership working to implement projects that benefit an area and its businesses.
The aim of the Fleet BID is to:
Provide services to local businesses in addition to those provided by the District Council, the Town Council, the Police and other service providers.
Be owned and run by local businesses.
Bring more people into Fleet.
Raise the profile of Fleet locally and further afield.
Support businesses in the BID area to recruit and retain staff.
Be a united voice for local business.
Bring businesses together and create opportunities to work together.
Save money for businesses.
BIDs have been established in over 260 places across the UK, providing additional business enhancements in addition to services already delivered by councils.
The BID in Fleet is led by 12 BID Board Directors.
