Vote YES for continued investment into Bournemouth

Dear members,

As you may be aware, both Bournemouth’s Coastal and Town Centre Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) are currently up for renewal. Bournemouth Chamber of Commerce urges all our levy-paying members who are eligible to vote to remember to submit their vote as soon as possible. All votes must be sent by post and cannot be submitted digitally.

Should both BIDs gain renewal, in the next five years there will be over £6million investment from the BIDs into Bournemouth which will benefit all Bournemouth businesses and the Bournemouth area. This will only be possible through your yes vote and the collective investment from all eligible businesses.

The strategic objectives of each BID include:

  • Increase the number of people visiting Bournemouth
  • Reduce the number of empty shop units
  • Help businesses to grow and develop
  • Encourage people to explore Bournemouth’s unique areas
  • Improve and develop the unique identity of each distinct area within Bournemouth

Bournemouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce firmly supports both BIDs and encourages all our eligible members to continue collectively investing through the BIDs into the development of Bournemouth for the benefit of both our businesses and our community alike.
