BID steps gather pace

Steps to create the first business improvement district (BID) in Wales are gathering pace after Swansea City and County Council agreed to fund the set-up costs of a scheme. The local authority also agreed to pay a levy for each of its 35 properties in the city centre zone, meaning that it will contribute at least £114,000 towards improvements carried out in the BID. Swansea City Centre Partnership has drawn up proposals for the BID under a national pilot scheme. It is consulting with local businesses, which will vote on the plans next March.
