Event description

Description

The Haslemere Chamber of Commerce, with our Town Council and Waverley Council is considering the preparation of an application to become a BID (a Business Improvement District) whereby, if successful, it would have access to funds each year of approximately £60-£70,000 per annum to spend on projects suggested by the business community that would enhance the town’s commercial prospects and make it a more attractive destination for shoppers and other businesses alike. We are looking at a "joined-up" BID across Waverley Borough with Cranleigh, Farnham and Godalming.

We have retained the services of The Mosaic Partnership (an experienced BID Manager) to develop a feasibility study for this initiative. During December, Mosaic will be meeting with some 15 people across Haslemere to collect their views and ideas on a BID

The aim of the January workshop is raise awareness across all relevant parties in Haslemere and Weyhill and an opportunity to raise project ideas and issues for each area. A BID is primarily the concern of business (including charities) rate payers - but all are welcome.

The outline agenda is:

  • Welcome
  • Introduction to BIDs
  • Haslemere Feasibility - Facts & Figures
  • Projects & Priorities - A section looking at what projects may be suitable for Haslemere
  • Q&A
