From town centre events to business support and marketing initiatives, over the last five years Cheltenham BID has invested more than £2 million into the town for the benefit of businesses. The BID’s term is now ending, and in order for us to continue delivering our work for a second term, businesses must vote YES for Cheltenham BID in our renewal ballot in June. Cheltenham Business Improvement District (BID) is a not-for-profit organisation funded by and working for levy paying businesses in the town centre.
This ballot will take place in June 2021, and businesses will be required to vote YES if they’d like to see the BID renewed for a second term. Cheltenham BID’s 2021-2026 business plan will be released on May 20.
You can read the BID’s consultation document here.
If the ballot is unsuccessful, Cheltenham BID will cease to exist from 31st July 2021.
