Revive & Thrive South West Regional Meeting
Organised by Lucy Ball, Revive & Thrive Regional Advisor
Revive & Thrive is hosting a regional networking meeting in Exeter from 10.00, Friday 17th March at the Princesshay Management Suite in Exeter (EX1 1EU).
- Karen Street, Business Rates Retention Officer
- Dean Emery, Principal Revenues & Debt Recovery Officer
Both are from Taunton Deane Borough council and will talk about all things rates and revaluation and the new system.
The impact of these changes is going to affect some towns and cities more than others. BIDs in particular will have a special interest in this topic, and other towns will want to know what the impact is likely to be to businesses on their High Streets.
Our hosts, Exeter BID, will present their progress to date since coming into existence in July 2015; the pressures to deliver, their achievements to date and their plans for the coming year.
Over lunch there will also be an opportunity for you share your town’s achievements, ideas and concerns with others in a round table discussion.
After lunch you are welcome to take a stroll around the great city of Exeter in your own time, or guided by the Exeter BID team.
This event is kindly sponsored by BIDBase. BIDBase is a powerful online database system designed specifically for Business Improvement Districts
