GRBID New Bid Proposal 2019 -2024
Consultation for a New BID began in July 2018 and ended in December 2018. As a part of a New BID proposal traders from Gloucester Road outside the current perimeters of the GRBID were consulted as to whether they would wish to join a New BID 2019 – 2024 thereby uniting both trading ends of Gloucester Road. Findings were conclusive and the majority of those businesses did not wish to have a BID in their part of Gloucester Road. Based on this conclusion in Autumn 2018 a New BID proposal consultation continued in the current GRBID area only.
During the period of consultation in the current GRBID area, support for a new BID grew significantly and from those various forms of consultation it indicated that a majority of businesses would welcome a New BID 2019 – 2024.
